She enjoyed family gatherings especially Christmas and birthday celebrations. She had a well deserved reputation as the cookie and cupcake lady. She had an enormous soft spot for animals. She hand picked the following poem, which describes her situation precisely; I'M FREE Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free I'm following the path God laid for me I took His hand when I heard him call I turned my back and left it all I could not stay another day To laugh, to love, to work or play Tasks left undone must stay that way I found that place at the close of day If my parting has left a void Then fill it with remembered joy A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss Be not burdened with times of sorrow I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow My life's been full, I savored much Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch Perhaps my time seemed all too brief Don't lengthen it now with undue grief Lift up your heart and share with me God wanted me now, He set me free Please join us to remember JoAnn on February 9th at 9929 SW 76th Street in Lakewood from 1:00pm - 4:00pm.
