Joanne attended Portland schools and graduated from Deering High School. As a young woman, she attended the Mercy School of Nursing and raised her family in Prides Corner. She was actively involved with her children, and the local community, always adding special touches to everything she did. She worked with many special charities dear to her heart.

Later in life, Joanne moved to New Mexico and spent the last 23 years in Albuquerque. She loved the southwest and the warm sunshine that always brought a smile to her face. She loved to travel & had a green thumb like no other. Her beautiful roses were praised by many.
