Her family and grandchildren were the loves of her life. She enjoyed doing for others, surprising people with her homemade gifts “just because”. Joanne loved to travel and visit new places. She was a “crafting hummingbird”, always looking for new craft adventures. She owned a craft business with her husband, Leland, called She & I Woodworks and More. She loved being outdoors and working in her yard. Fishing was one of her favorite pastimes. She cherished her Parkview Christian Church family.
