Joann A. Nelson Obituary
Joann Alice (Wolff) Nelson, 85, passed away peacefully on December 21, 2017, in the comfort of her son's home in Springfield, MA, with her family at her side. Born on January 11, 1932, in Los Angeles, CA, she was the loving daughter of Robert W. and Helen (Sperle) Wolff. She was raised, educated and spent her life in Southern CA, a true "California Girl."

She was humble, kind and loving to all who knew her. Her faith in God carried her through many difficult challenges. Joann's most valued treasure was her family. In addition to her husband, she leaves behind her loving children who will cherish her memory, Brad Nelson and his wife, Kathy of Springfield, MA, Lorie Simcox and her companion, Rick Harold of Santa Rosa, CA, and Lynn Nelson of Santa Rosa, CA; her adored grandchildren, Brandi (Simcox) Robinson and her husband T.J., Erin (Nelson) Hulea and her husband Brian, Shane Nelson and great grandchildren Kara (Robinson) Morgan and her husband Jonathan, Zack Robinson, William, Abby and Katelyn Hulea, and her great-great grandson William Morgan.
