JoAnn was a most awesome lady. I got to know her as a friend over the last 10 or so years. But, as an adopted mom over the past couple of years. She was very nurturing and caring and taught me about many things. Her passion for square dancing and ballroom dancing amazed me and her love of plants and flowers was evident in the resident garden at Redstone Highlands. I will never forget all the fun and laughs we had. Fly with the Angel's my dear. You earned your wings. May you sit at God's table with your "Hun" and enjoy peace.
