I am so sorry. I was actually thinking about her yesterday wondering how she was doing. I she had been ill for a long time. I remember a lot of good memories when she was still able to get around.

We lived next door to Joann for a short time. She was the kindest lady. We would talk forever, she always had the nicest things to say.

Living in the same neighborhood as Joann for 50 years, she will truly be missed. She was proud of her family, loved telling us about her Grandchildren. I knew when she would be watching a ballgame, her lights would be on late at night. :) Rest in Peace, Joann

To Joann's family, we are so sorry for your loss. My mother is Reva Smith Fitzjarrald, a first cousin to Joann. I can remember family get-togethers back in the day, at my grandparents home north of Sweetser, Robert & Edith Smith. All of the Haynes and Smith families would be there. Great memories!
