I have been friends with Joann, my little “chickadee” as I called her, for years and worked with her at the Tumbleweed. She was very special to me and I will miss her sweet smile and nice visits. Blessed be her memory.

We sat in front of Joann and Richard for many years at First Lutheran Church. We all liked and respected them. Our daughters worked with Joann at Kmart. Everyone enjoyed her company. Our condolences.
