ARDEN - Dr. JoAnn Carland awakened from this dream of life on Thursday, August 15, 2013.
She left her close family yet dreaming, husband Jim, sons, Trey and Jason, Trey's wife Shelby and their daughter, Izabella, and Jason's partner, Judy Rogers and her children, Katelyn and Kade. Her other family had awakened before her, brother Bill, father Howard, mother Louise, and granddaughter Stella Grace.
There will be a great celebration of her life on September 8th. The location and details are described at www.CarlandFoundation.org. Please visit that website because it not only displays the information about the Celebration, it provides a link for people to share their stories. The details of her life, her accomplishments, her contributions to the world, the legacy that she leaves, is all far too vast for this small metier. Some of those details are enscribed on the website, but the bulk of the story must wait until the Celebration in September. If you knew and loved her, please visit that site and share your story of JoAnn with us. We will publish a book of these stories as quickly as we may. Please do not send flowers. There is a scholarship fund available at the Carland Foundation, and you may reach it through the website.
Groce Funeral Home at Lake Julian is assisting the family and a memorial register is available online at www.grocefuneralhome.com.
