Memories Timeline


  1. We were sorry sorry to hear about Cousin Joann passing. She was a beautiful person and will be greatly missed by everyone. We know she is in Heaven with Mom and all her family!
    With our deepest sympathy and Love; Rosie & Richard Angelica

  2. I am so saddened to hear of JoAnn's passing. Such a beautiful soul…she was a second mom to me and came next door all the time to sit and talk with me and my mom Caroline.
    Whenever you look out the window there was JoAnn walking up to St. Nick's to say her prayers.
    If ever it were true of Angels on Earth, JoAnn certainly was my angel in good times and bad.
