On December 13, 2016, Joanne Signor joined Charles, her loving husband of 54 years, in Heaven, only ten days after he joined his Heavenly Father and family.

She leaves behind her daughter Holly Secrest of Nacogdoches, and her family Robert, Derek, Dillon, and Rusty; her son Clay Signor of Austin and his family, Sarah, Sienna, and Wyatt; her daughter, Sara Alexander of Montgomery, and her family, Derek, Avery, Ansley, and Annemarie; and her daughter Shelley Buhrow of Dallas, and her family, Brian, Fields, and Tristan; as well as countless family friends who have been blessed by her laughter and friendship over the years.

Joanne Marie Neal was born on May 24th, 1937 in Conroe, TX, to Arthur Powell Neal and his wife Blanch Emma. The youngest of six children, Joanne was known for her vivacious personality, spending her childhood enjoying movies in downtown Conroe on Saturdays, dancing and even singing on her own local radio show in her teenage years before graduating from Conroe High School in 1956. She acquired countless friends working at several local businesses including The Conroe Courier and First National Bank before that fateful day when her husband-to-be followed her home from Dott's Drive-In to ask her for a date. They soon married and built a life together with God and family as their primary focus.

A committed full time mother of four, Joanne also contributed to Charles's oil and gas and real estate development businesses as well as launching a real estate career of her own in the early nineties working as an agent for Sue Luce. She also made time for many hobbies over the years, including her local sorority (who have remained dedicated friends for over forty years) playing bridge, tennis, book club, writing poetry, painting, Bible Study Fellowship, a prison bible ministry and helping with various charities (one of her favorites being New Life Women's Center where she and her husband Charles have played an integral role in many aspects of the ministry since its foundation in 2004). She never encountered a challenge that she didn't meet head on with courage and enthusiasm. Together, she and Charles lived each day to its fullest, traveling frequently and enjoying entertaining family and friends at their ranch in Lampasas.

Though she is so very missed here on Earth, we rejoice in knowing that she is present with her loving Savior in Heaven where her voice is made whole and she now sings with the Angels. After all, this world is not our home. We are just passing through.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly asks that you direct your giving to New Life Women's Center, for those residents who do not currently have financial support.

A Celebration of Joanne's Life will be held on Friday, December 16, 2016 at 12:00 P.M. at the Walden Yacht Club. A private family graveside will be held prior to the Celebration.
