Rountree, JoAnn Beasley*  
JoAnn Beasley Rountree, 80, passed away July 14 in Atlanta after a courageous five-year battle with cancer. She was born to Johnnie and James M. Beasley on September 12, 1935 in Geneva, Alabama. Her family relocated to Panama City, Florida during World War II. JoAnn was graduated from Panama Grammar School and Bay County High School. She received her B.A. from Agnes Scott College and later a Master of Library Science from Emory University. After graduating from Agnes Scott, JoAnn's compassion for people led her to a career in social work in Chipley, Florida. She married Cecil Anderson ("Andy") Rountree, Jr., and they moved to Milledgeville, Georgia, where Andy enjoyed an institutional dental practice. While in Milledgeville, JoAnn gave birth to their only child, William Anderson ("Will") Rountree. The couple later returned to Chipley to be closer to family, and Andy went into private practice there. Andy lost his life tragically in an auto accident on January 24, 1985, and JoAnn never remarried. After Will left home for college, JoAnn moved to Marianna, Florida to take a position as Director of the Jackson County Public Library System. The Library System flourished during her 13 years as Director. She built a new library in Graceville, Florida, purchased a book mobile to serve rural communities, expanded the Marianna library with a computer lab, and worked tirelessly in her crusade against illiteracy. JoAnn was active in the Marianna Woman's Club and the Chipley Woman's Club, having served as a past president of the latter. She was very active in the First Presbyterian Church of Marianna, working many hours in the Church's Food Pantry after her retirement. She was a life-long lover of animals and volunteered regularly for animal charities (and took in many a stray dog and cat through the years). JoAnn will be remembered for her delightful sense of humor, her grace and compassion, and her love of life, which she never lost despite much suffering. The greatest joys of her life were her beloved granddaughters, Elizabeth Anne ("Libby") Rountree, Caroline Campbell Rountree, and Adeline Anderson ("Addie") Rountree. She is also survived by her son Will and his wife Emelie of Atlanta, special cousins June Harrison of Panama City, Jeanine Bozeman of New Orleans and Joyce Penuel of Geneva, nephew Philip Rountree of Tampa, great-nieces Reda Rountree-Gill of Los Angeles and Renae Rountree of Chipley, and many close friends, including Stanley Littleton of Marianna. A Requiem Mass was celebrated on July 22 at the Episcopal Church of Our Saviour, which JoAnn had attended regularly during her time in Atlanta. An Internment of the Ashes will be celebrated in Chipley on a date to be announced. The family would like to thank JoAnn's many friends for their outpouring of support during her illness. Memorial donations may be made to the Jackson County Public Library.
