Bob and family, I am so sorry for your loss. JoAnn was a beautiful person and a great friend. She will be greatly missed. RIP JoAnn, you are now with the angels.

I am so sorry for your loss of one of the most influential women in my professional career. JoAnn was our VP at Mt. Eden; she kept all of us on the right path. I will never forget when she came to my home to help me deal with the passing of my husband. I remember she came back several times, even helping me open up bags and bags of mail that I had ignored for months. JoAnn was a pillar of strength for me and others. So very sorry to hear she passed way too young.


Bob: Joanne was quite a gal who so impressed us with her strength, her dedication, her skills, her beauty, her grace and her joy in living. I remember her as an wonderful role model for the students she loved and helped in her roles as an educator. I am so sorry she has gone too soon, but so glad I was privileged to be one of her co-workers. May she rest in peace and may the memories you have of your life together give you comfort in your grief. She was so very special. Irene Martin

I've thought of both of you often but never expected this. JoAnn will be missed by all of us who had...
