Joanne was certainly an avid family history researcher. She helped literally 100's of Largents, and I'm sure other families in her and Bob's tree, with difficult questions on their ancestry. My great-grandfather's descendants consider me the family historian, but I can't hold a candle to Joanne. She was a great encouragement to me in 1991 when I desk-top published a book on this branch of the family, and I hoped to meet her this winter to get her help on an upcoming revision with a lot more photos.
My extended family is always referring some previously unknown Largent to me to determine how we're related. I can help some, but I always sent the difficult questions on to Joanne. Joanne, your many many distant relatives will miss you!
