Joanne Dove Calvert, of Oak Hill, passed away on November 21, 2012, at the age of 82. Joanne was born on October 2, 1930, to Ivan Allen Dove and Dorothy Saum Dove of Bradenton, Florida where she grew up. Joanne moved to Athens, Georgia and became a Dental Hygienist which she did in Athens for 17 years, then Clarkesville, Georgia until she retired. Then she met and married Harry (Bud) Calvert and spent the rest of her life in the wonderful Oak Hill community. Here she volunteered for the hospital and sang in the Bed Pan Band. She had a passion for the game of bridge and enjoyed the fellowship of her local bridge club. Many friends and family have been entertained at their home fishing off the dock, boating or just enjoying the scenery. Joanne enjoyed nothing more than being a good hostess. She was a kind and gentle soul with a respect for all living things. It was fitting that she passed peacefully at her sanctuary on the inner coastal waterway. Joanne was preceded in death by her husband Harry (Bud) Calvert and her brother Jack Dove. Survivors include Brothers, Jerry Dove (Judy) and Bill Dove (Shirley); sons Mark Arnold (Rene) and John Arnold (Angel); daughters Dorothy Murphy (Jim) and Carol Monday (Ron); and ten grandchildren. She had a beloved extended family and many dear friends throughout her life. The family will celebrate her life Saturday, November 24th from 1:00 until 4:00pm, at their home. A special thanks to John, Carol, and Angel for all that they have done. From her children, Dorothy, Mark, John and Carol, we love you Mom. You will be missed! In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you please surprise someone with a bouquet of flowers. Joanne would want it that way.
