JoVanna Mae Luque' died on May 4, 2018 from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). She was with her four remaining children and extended family when she died. She is preceded in death by her children, Jay "Jay Bird" and Scott Luque. JoVanna will be fondly remembered for her extensive community work in San Francisco, Sacramento and Lake Havasu, AZ. JoVanna raised six children primarily on her own and was an advocate for three of the children as they began to identify as gay and lesbian. She was an early advocate of women's rights and later in her life contributed extensively to the LGBTQ community as a volunteer and pioneer for equal rights. She was the lighthouse in the storm so many people in her life. Her memorial will be held at the AIDS Memorial Grove on July 21, 2018 from 12:30 to 1:30 and a celebration for life will follow.
