Joanne passed away on Wednesday, May 25, 2005 after a brief battle with lymphoma. She is already terribly missed by her three children: Lonny, Cheryl, and Rick (Lori). She also leaves behind her granddaughter, Catelyn.
Joanne spent many years working in public relations and fund raising for hospitals and non-profit agencies. After she retired, she sold real estate and did appraisals. She raised her children alone and was a good example to them as she was independent, honest, hard working, and loved them unconditionally. For these reasons and more, her children will love and miss her always.
The family will hold a private service to celebrate her life.
Her beloved family would like to thank the many people at the Appleton Medical Center who gave Joanne compassionate, attentive care. The staff there also went out of their way to show kindness to Joanne‚Äôs family. If you wish, contributions can be made to the Appleton Medical Center Foundation or ThedaCare At Home.
