JoAnn Brown


 To be in the company of JoAnne was beyond just special.  She was that beautiful, authentic soul you wanted to be with - she always remembered your name and your birthday, asked about your family, shared her stories and listened with care.  Surrounded by her cherished daughters, devoted sons-in-law, her beloved grandchildren and the love of her life, her soulmate Jerry, she received as much as she gave.  To also have the love, support and friendship of her bowling, stickball and the Battle of the Bulge families as well demonstrates how wonderful, sincere and genuine JoAnn truly was.  There will never be another like her and she will missed and treasured always.
