She worked as a preschool teacher until she retired. Joanne also loved her fur children Max and Joey. One of Joanne's greatest joys was spending time with her family, and watching her great nephews play all of their various sports. She was a very proud Aunt and Great Aunt or GAJ as her family called her.  Many memories were made, but one of the fondest is Joanne and her sister Diana "helping" Santa safely land at each of her great nephews’ houses making sure that trinkets fell off of Santa's sleigh for them to find the next morning. Joanne was the most caring person and had a deep love of her family.  She will be greatly missed.  

Joanne is survived by her sister's Diana Phillips; Pamela (Bob) Prater: Niece: LeaAnn (Mike) Evans; Nephew's: J.L. (Stephanie) Phillips; Curt (Carrie) Prater; Brody (Kelly) Prater and a host of great nephews, nieces, and friends.
