She married the love of her life, Angus "Angie" MacIntyre in 1959, who fondly referred to her as "St. Joanne", and they raised their family together in Auburn.
Joanne enjoyed gardening, playing cards, cooking, time spent at Old Orchard Beach and with her friends at Spatt's, who also referred to her as "St. Joanne", but most of all, she enjoyed spending time in her backyard with family, in the pool and barbequing. Joanne was always eager to make everyone happy, a true "sweetheart".
She was predeceased by her husband Angus in 2010.
