She was a fantastic seamstress and enjoyed sewing. She took pride in her writing and journaling. She was a faithful Christian and proud of her Catholic upbringing.
JoAnn was known for her kind and gentle spirt. She was full of grace. Her family admired and respected her wisdom and would turn to her for advice, a listening ear, or her shoulder to cry on.
