Joann was my cousin by marriage. He mom married my uncle when we were young girls. I did not live around her but spent summers in town with my grandparents. We spent a lot of time together always having a good time. I had not seen joann for a long time but had lunch after connecting on Facebook. I will miss her greatly thoughts and prayers to her family. She was a great person RIP
