I can't say enough about the loss so many are feeling. I am sending prayers to the whole family. I know you are happy to be in the loving arms of Paul. Until we meet again my friend RIP. Dolly Theisen

I am so sorry for your loss. JoAnn was a very wonderful woman and always had a smile on her face. I always enjoyed talking to her when I worked at the Circle K in town. I will be praying for the family and friends. Rest in Peace JoAnn. You will definitely be missed by all. Rhonda Hudson

I remember 2 specific things about JoAnn. Once when I was in the Carleton Pharmacy she and one of her co-workers got a package in the mail. When they opened it, it was a HUGE bar of Hershey's chocolate. I was so jealous! Of course, I was 11 years old. Another time, I went into the pharmacy and tried to steal some caps (for a cap gun). JoAnn caught me and I thought for sure I was going to get into big trouble. She just asked me to put them back and explained to me why stealing is wrong. Her punishment for me was that I could not go into the pharmacy for a whole week. I thought she was so mean for that, but later I realized that she was just teaching me a lesson. I'm so glad to have known her. Andrew John Vergowven

Jo was such an amazing person. I don't have enough room to say everything I could say. She was a sweet, hilarious, warm, fun lady. My love and prayers to the family, especially Lesa and Denise. Rosemary Knowles (Galloway)
