  1. We loved u Joann. It was always a pleasure spending time w u. U were a constant student in my water aerobic classes in the winter, always encouraging everyone to attend. I will miss our talks at the pool and at bingo. Ur sweet smile and laughter I cherish so much now. Those memories r how I want to remember u. RIP, my dear friend. Although our hearts r heavy w ur loss we know u r no longer in pain. Hugs, thoughts and prayers r with Ed and ur family.??❤️

  2. Even tho we only knew Joann for two short yes she was a friend full of life, loving the beach going when ever she possibly could. She loved her friends and their dogs. She and Ed were the treat givers in the park. They would sit on their porch and just wait for them to come. I remember one time she took care of my Thanksgiving plant that was white and salmon colored. She just loved it so much she didn’t want to give it back until after it stopped blooming nor did she. I made here one from I’m sure that is blooming as I write this. Joann our friend RIP. Ralph and Lola Emery

  3. Our dear friend JoAnne will always be remembered for her kindness and friendly smile. We met at JaMar North Park in Port Richey Florida when we were both looking to purchase a home. She was always up for a shopping trip to Bealls or a day at the pool or her favourite beach, Fred Howard Park. Every year we would join Ed & JoAnn at a Phillies Spring Training Game here in Florida. I have lots of great memories and will miss her greatly. Sending love and prayers to Ed and family.

  4. JoAnn was a former Red Hatter with me when we were in the Red Hat Keystone Hatitudes and was a fun loving beautiful person to be with! RIP Dear Lady!

  5. I will always remember our trips together. So much fun and so many memories made. Specifically, we went on my uncles boat and we had to walk out in the water to get in and both my brother and Uncle Ed had to carry JoAnn and I because we were afraid the crabs would pinch our toes. And when Ed got stuck on a sand barge he told us we would have to get out if the boat and we told him “no”.
    We traveled together to the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Hoover Dam, Florida, Myrtle Beach, Ocean City, Caribbean, and I’m sure I’m missing some others. I will miss you SO MUCH!!! ?. I know you’re in a better place. And I’m glad you are no longer suffering. I love you and will cherish every memory I got to experience with you. RIP!!! Until me meet again. ❤️

  6. I am so fortunate to have known JoAnn.
    She always had a smile on her face and pleasant to be around.
    I will treasure the memories of boating at Lake Raystown on long holiday weekends.
    The good times spent at the NASCAR races and the fun at Daytona Beach.
    RIP JoAnn – gone too soon. ❤️

  7. I used to work with Joann at Phfa in Pennsylvania.
    My daughter & I were in Maine with her girl scout troop a few years ago. We were sitting on a whale boat waiting for the adventure to begin. I hear some one calling my name from the dock. I look over and there stands Joann waving to me. 🙂 What are the chances of running into someone so far from home. Sweet, Sweet Joann. You will be missed.

  8. What I can remember of you (memory has been affected by surgery) you were a quiet and beautifully tall classmate who was a friend to everyone. I will always have such wonderful memories of you and wish life would have made us stay in touch with each other other than at class reunions. Your life was so full, and I’m so happy God blessed you with a beautiful family and a long solid career that lead to an early retirement. I look forward to joining you in Heaven. Please ask Jesus to keep watch over us people you left on Earth. Until we meet again….Love and Peace, my Dear Soul.
