Joanne was a wonderful wife and a loving aunt to her nieces and nephews, notably stepping in to help after the death of her sister-in-law to provide loving support for many years and do whatever she could do to make life better for her niece and nephews who had lost their mother. She was a fiercely loyal and dependable friend as well.
Joanne was very active in the Madison YMCA, as well as the Joy Class, book club and local theater group where she built many long friendships.
