When I wasn't locked out of Facebook, I always looked forward to what Joanne had to say.  She loved God, her family and country. 

I watched her talking about her tiny home, while holding her beautiful dog.  Joanne had a pure heart, "princess, child of our King"

I am so sorry for your loss...

She will be missed not only by her family but her facebook friends too...
