She was employed there by IBM for many years. JoAnn and Bob were avid bridge players. Bob died in 1994. In 2010, JoAnn’s grandson, LCPL James (Katelyn) Stack, USMC, was Killed in Action in Afghanistan. JoAnn moved to St. Paul’s Heritage in Greenville, PA in 2015.

This was interesting
I truly enjoyed Joann. She was very special to me and I will especially miss her smiling face and hugs.
She was a kind and classy lady.
I looked forward to visiting with her whether we were making a craft, baking in our baking group, having a party or playing a game.
She was a great cheerleader during our weekly skee ball games.
She had a true love for playing 500 card games and played it daily. I know that her fellow card game members will also miss her.
I feel honored and thankful to have known Joann.
Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
God Bless you.
Susan, we will long remember your faithfulness to your mother. God bless
