Joanne Engle Obituary
Engle, Joanne
89 passed away unexpectedly but peacefully on April 27th in the afternoon. She was born in Dothen Alabama but moved to Phoenix before the roads were paved. She loved to tell stories of running round in the hills with no shoes on. She was surrounded and survived by those she loved most her son Jimmy, his wife Vicky and her daughter Sue. Her grandchildren Tabby, Travis, Dena, Holly, Jake and Melissa and her great grandchildren Cassie, Logan, Tamar, Sevon, Jake Jr, Elijah, Isaiah, Chelsea and Owen. She had two great loves of her life: Elmer Engle to whom she was married for over 50 years until his passing in 1994 and Furman Davis to whom she was married for over 10 years until his passing in 2006. They will have to share her in heaven she was looking forward to seeing them both. Joanne loved life and lived the way she wanted to in her home until she passed. She was sharp and spunky and loved to tell stories. She was a rock to those who loved her, inspiring us to live up to our potential. She was an angel and people were drawn to her wherever she went. We will miss her voice but her light will never leave us. We will be celebrating her life on Sunday May 1st at 3pm in Roadrunner Park 3502 East Cactus Rd. Joanne hated black and wanted everyone to wear bright colors to remember her by.
