The Guest Book is expired.

Joanne passed away early morning on June 9th in her home, well before her time. Born in Chicago, Il, the fourth child of eight. She was a full time mother, even when her children were no longer at home. An avid reader. A lover of the simple pleasures. In her job as an office manager, she was the glue that held everything together, which resonated with her personal life and relationships.
Described by her family and friends as the most selfless and nurturing woman. There are no words to describe such a kind hearted spirit, only the moments in her presence that showed us her wonderful nature. Her smile, laugh, and hugs will never be matched. A woman who knew no selfishness, who knew no hate. She showed everyone the true definition of love. Her family, all of her family, was her entire life. And as her family, all of her family, she was ours.
A memorial service will be held on Tuesday June 14 at 1:00pm at the Unity Church. The church is located at 460 46th Ave North, St. Petersburg Fl 33703. Following the memorial is a reception in the community room at the church from 2 to 4 pm.
