I'm so sorry that I didn't learn of JoAnn's passing until after the funeral. I met her through Brig. General Edward Bulkley chapter of DAR. She was an organizing member of the chapter and was loved by all. Even though she was unable to participate the last few years, she was faithful to pay her dues and support the chapter. We will miss her. A genealogy book will be donated to the library in her memory. With affection, Holley Izard

Our deepest sympathy,
