Joann Dolores Koll Obituary
July 11, 1930 - August 11, 2016 Joann Dolores Koll, 86, died peacefully in Santa Monica, CA on August 11, 2016 after a brief illness. Born in Los Angeles on July 11, 1930, Joann was the devoted daughter of Madeline Elisabeth Schones and Jesse Robert Schones. She was a graduate of Hollywood High School and the University of Southern California, where she was affiliated with Kappa Delta. Joann served as Past President of National Charity League - Los Angeles Founder Chapter, Trojan League of Los Angeles, Freedom Foundation of Valley Forge, the Los Angeles Chapter of PEO and was a long-standing member of the Assistance League. She is survived by her husband of 64 years Edwin Lee Koll and her two daughters: Madelyn Koll Bailey and Martha Koll Kerstner; sons-in-law, Jim Bailey and Doug Kerstner; nine grandchildren: Christopher Kerstner, Laura Bailey Mossler (Scott), Katie Gulbranson (Corey), Charlie Bailey, Nicholas Kerstner (Lauren), Kiki Bailey, Daniel Bailey, William Bailey and Amy Bailey and three great-grandchildren: Jack & Ellie Gulbranson and Lucy Mossler. Besides Joann's love of family, her other love was the University of Southern California. The Trojan Family was an important part of her life by way of her contributions to USC as President of the Inter-Sorority Mothers Club 1977-1978, 41-year member of Town & Gown, President of USC Alumni Coordinating Council 1997-1998, Member of the USC Board of Governors 2006-2011, Chairperson of the 2010 Alumni Association Gala and recipient of the 2011 USC Alumni Award: Fred B. Olds Award. Words cannot express her deep rooted love of SC and she would want all of us who knew and loved her to "Fight On!" In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations may be made in Joann's memory to USC Town & Gown or the Los Angeles Chapter of Trojan League. Interment at Forest Lawn Mortuary, Glendale.
