I am so sorry to hear of JoAnn's passing. She was such an awesome human being in every sense of the word. I occasionally ran into JoAnn when visiting my sister, Jackie in Webster City. She would always stop and chat. She is in God's hands now. She will be sorely missed by Claudia, family and friends.

She has sent me birthday, Christmas, and anniversary cards since I graduated from high school. She is such a sweet lady and SO caring. She cared for many and was a great teacher. She was always smiling and happy whenever I saw her and talked with her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. JoAnn is a great lady that will be missed by many.

See wasn't a school teacher or Sunday School teacher of mine. She was my "mom" for a Mother-Daughter Banquet at church. She was a great friend, loved her visits when seeing her around town, at a local restaurant, or out for our birthdays. She was a sweet lady and will be greatly missed. Sorry I won't be able to attend her funeral. God blessed her and now bless her family.
