Joanne Sutton Gaston

Joanne Sutton Gaston, age 64, of Monticello, Fl, passed away peacefully on Sunday morning, May 5th at her home, surrounded by family. She is survived by her husband, Mel Gaston of Monticello, FL; her daughter, Lori Kennedy of Tallahassee, FL; her son, William Kennedy of Tallahassee, FL: her stepson, Wes Gaston of Seattle, WA: her two sisters, five brothers, and three grandchildren. Her passing marks an end to a nine year struggle against breast cancer.

A registered nurse for 40 years, she retired in 2011. However, she continued her unfathomable caring for others in various volunteering capacities, both in volunteer work at doctor's offices and with locally spear-heading fund drives for national charities of her favor. All those who knew her, felt the warm caring of her compassion. Her passing will not end the loving warmth of her legacy.

Memorial service is planned at Good Shepherd Catholic Church, Tallahassee, FL on Friday, May 10th, 1:00 PM. Family request donations be made to Big Bend Hospice or the organization in place of flowers or floral arrangements.
