I will always remember my beloved Aunt JoAnn with her initial greeting, “ How are you sweetheart”? Throughout the years she acted as my private nurse, listening to my ailments (sometimes hypochondriacal), always putting my mind at ease and offering solid advice. Tim and I would often marvel and comment on her impeccable memory, superior intelligence and being abreast of current events. I will mostly miss her great family stories, including my Mom whenever possible. Rest in eternal peace Aunt JoAnn. Please say hello to Cookie and John and dance long with Uncle Ange. Love always, Lisa (DeMicco)
