I remember Ms. Joanne while I was growing up in DeSoto Bass Courts.

I have fond memories of Mrs. McDonald growing up in the Miami Chapel School neighborhood, and then being on staff with her at Colnel White HS. My sincere condolences to the family, friends, love ones; and her church family.

Our condolences to the family. Ms. McDonald was a friend to many. She was a force to be reckoned with when it came to work. She was loved at Corinthian Baptist Church and served on numerous committees. She definitely will be missed.
Rest well dear lady.
