Joann was anchored in the Lord and she knew HE loved her throughout her life. She was devoted for 38 years to Bell Telephone as a care manager. The things that made Joann the happiest were her three dogs, traveling to casinos and most of all the time spent with family. She will be dearly missed by those who knew and loved her.

    My deepest condolences to Ronnie and the kids. Joann was a sweet gentle soul. Not only was she a classmate from WHS but through the years when I visited family and friends in Pittsburgh she and Ronnie were among the people I had the pleasure of their company.

    Ronnie, Raegan and Mikey – Our thoughts and prayers are with you and know that Joann is no longer suffering… she is with the Father! She has shed that weak body and now among the angels singing God’s praise! She is also with my mother, Jeannette, whom she loved so dearly. They are up there having a good old time! I pray for your strength in the Lord. Love, Rhonda, Milton, Dezmond & Mia.

    Ronnie, Raegan and Mike,
    I’m so very sorry to learn of Joann’s passing. It is with a heavy heart that I offer condolences on behalf of my family, Kevin Sr., Kevin, Karl and Brandy. You know Joann was a second mother to my kids, who loved and adored her. She had so many wonderful qualities that I honor, her loving kindness, thoughtfulness and her genuine spirit. I looked forward to her stopping by the cookouts and will cherish those memories. I pray for God’s peace and comfort to surround you, today and forever and that you always know HE has you in the palm of his hand. Love, Ms. Loretta.
