She was instrumental in establishing a breast cancer support group in Custer County and organized multiple Breast Cancer Walks.  After retirement she volunteered at the Community Connection, the Food Bank and spent countless hours with residents of Off Broadway Assisted Living.  She was a very talented seamstress, sewing clothing for her family, doing alterations for others and in later years quilting.  Even while enduring breast cancer and kidney issues she always had a smile on her face and was quick to help others.   She was a very talented musician playing the piano for several years at church and had a beautiful singing voice.  She loved to listen and sing all types of gospel music.

Joann lived her life to the fullest with a strong relationship with God.   She professed her love in Jesus Christ and lived each day doing God’s work.  She always had a frog pin or charm that served as her daily reminder to Fully Rely On God.    She was incredibly proud of her 3 kids, 5 grand kids and 3 great granddaughters and was always quick to show off pictures of them or tell of their latest accomplishments.
