With the current restrictions, I had not seen Aunt Joanne in recent years but I had enjoyed our visits before that. My heart goes out to you, Scott and John, and to your families. The loss of a parent is always felt so deeply. Please keep us posted if a memorial service is planned.

Joanne was a Delta Gamma sister who was so much fun to be with. She always added such laughter whenever our Champaign-Urbana Alumnae group got together. She will be missed. Sending my prayers to her family.

I farm for Jim for several years and when I would settle up with him I would go to their house and she would make me feel so wonderful. We would spend the afternoon talking about stars and how they would line up in Lou of the farmers almanac. Both Jim and Joanne were wonderful people.

My cousin, Joanne, was the one person that I looked up to for advice as I went through CHS and later the U of I and beyond. We used to talk on the phone, compare notes on the behavior of our children & what to expect as they grew up. She was a wonderful mentor to me through the years. I have been away from IL since 1958 but I always knew I was only a phone call away from advice from Joanne. God Bless her and may she rest in peace.
