She battled cancer for the last two years and did so with no retreat.
Joanne is survived by her loving husband Michael of 46 years and their three children, daughters Shannon (Rudy), Robyn (Ryan) and son Matthew (Amanda).
Being a Nana for the last few years to her special grandsons Hudson and Benjamin filled her heart with such joy.
Joanne is also survived by her brother Robert, her nieces and nephews and of course, her many, many friends.
Joanne will always be remembered by each in their own way but always as a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
