I was so sorry to hear of Joanne´s passing; it is like there is less light in the world. She was so smart, funny, kind; a really great person. I knew she was experiencing some health problems when she retired but not to this extent. Her family and friends have my deepest sympathy.

Joanne always had a great sense of humor. Her baton twirling was legendary. I remember when she was disappointed when she wasn't chosen as Miss Wisconsin.
