"Whatever struggles she may have faced
 beyond the years we spent together
 through high school, college and my seminary years, what I think of now when I remember JoAnn
 is this:
A soft and gentle Soul as I see her soft and gentle face.
A Spirit of Life in her broad and inviting smile.
A Love for Life in her full and engaging energy.

In her memory, as a tribute to her and with deep and abiding love
