Momma J,

My heart hurts just trying to put into words how devastating it is losing you. Ever since you came into my life, I have loved you like a mother, and you always treated me like a daughter. You gave everything to your family and to your job: the epitome of selfless. I’ll cherish the laughs we shared and the talks we had. And I’ll forever cherish you!!

Your warm spirit and loving heart will truly be missed. I love you

Your Bonus Daughter,
Judy

To Joanne Pittman's family - My deepest condolences on your great loss.  Joanne was a colleague as well as a personal friend of mine. We spent so much time together riding in our cars or just chatting on the phone. I will miss her deeply. May you find comfort in knowing that so many loved her and had the highest respect for her. Rest well my Beautiful Friend until we meet again.

I was saddened to hear that Joanne passed away. Joanne was a wonderful and amazing woman who cared about and cared for so many. I will remember her smile and welcoming demeanor. She was so genuine. I highly respected Joanne and appreciated her candor and straight talk. I will always have fond memories of our conversations over the years and her infectious laugh. I had the privilege of recently seeing Joanne and talking to her at work. She stopped by for a quick chat after noticing I was in the office. I will always cherish our friendship and that moment. When I think of Joanne, I think of the song “Gone too soon”. She is irreplaceable and certainly is missed. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I am so sorry for your loss. You have my heartfelt condolences. Farewell Joanne...may you RIP.

JoAnne always addressed my retirement questions and transactions with great knowledge, clarity and with the warm attentive disposition of someone who deeply cared for her colleagues' welfare. Every interaction with her made my DOT day better.
May the divine providence shower JoAnne with eternal blessings, and console her family with joyful memories with her, and the comfort of faith.

We have lost an amazing person. Joanne was remarkably caring and compassionate, and consistently so. In her handling of complex concerns at work, she always exhibited such equanimity and was so reliable. She left her mark on the lives of all those she helped. It was always a pleasure to see her. She will be greatly missed.

Sending prayers and comfort to the Pittman family at this tender time. Joanne assisted so many of us at work and will be noticeably missed.
Posted by Paul David McBride on August 8, 2022
I love you Joanne, I hold you in a long hug in my heart. You are kind, understanding, compassionate, the truly good things a human can be. I regret not getting to know you until I started to retire. That was a dumb mistake on my part, reasonable because of the job and distance, but I did miss too much of your goodness for too long by my not really getting to know you until the end of my time at the OIG. I think of you often, and I know that you are one of the ones that make the better ideas of humanity real. You, your kind presence, your effect on others, your effect on me, will be missed. I miss knowing you are here. Love, Dave

My sincere condolences to the Pittman family on the loss of your beloved Joanne..... 
I recall the three of us (Joanne, myself and the late Norma Adams) were close friends during the late 60's. Joanne had a caring, fun & lively personality. We often enjoyed going over each other's house to hang out, trying styles on each other's hair & also shopping in the Georgetown area--- sometimes picking outfits that match.
Even though many years have past & we had lost contact, I'm grateful to reflect & value, having known such a kind individual & also the blessing of wonderful memories!
Prayerfully......

My dearest Sister,

It's tough for me to sit here and write this letter to you. I’m trying to come to grips with the fact that you are no longer here with us in the flesh. Whenever I called you during your work week you always answered or returned my call. You would say “What’s up” is there anything wrong? I would say, I’m just calling to check on my sister and hear how you are doing. You would say “ I’m fine just working, but I have a few minutes. No matter how busy you were you always had a few minutes to talk to me. You always asked how was the girls and Dwight. You enjoyed the mini video clips I would send you of Sadie acting out. You would say “ Sadie has an old soul” and laugh. Yeah, I ‘m missing your laugh and miss hearing your voice. You were a generous and giving person and your best quality was helping anyone who sought your help or advice. I will no longer hear you say goodbye, and I love you after our conversations. I love you and missing you so very much. You are no longer in pain or struggling to breathe and sleep. God wanted you with him and his will was done. Rest in sleep my dear sweet sister. ❤️

I offer my sincere condolences to the Pittman family, you are all in our thoughts and prayers. I met Ms. Joanne sixteen years ago, when she processed me on my first day. Through the years, I've come to respect and truly adore her. She was such a lady, so dignified, professional and kind. She's a loss to all of us and will be dearly missed. RIP beautiful lady.
Posted by Siera Griffin on August 4, 2022

My deepest sympathy to JoAnne's Family!
JoAnne was my savior at work in many ways.
She will be remembered. I will miss her for sure.

My heartfelt condolences to the Pittman family. The sadness and loss felt by her DOT family pales in comparison to the grief and pain you are going through. I worked with Joanne my entire federal career and she was always such a friendly and caring soul to be around. She helped me on so many occasions with various work related matters and I looked forward to our interactions. Joanne always had an answer… and a smile. I will miss our funny conversations and the laughs we shared. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this truly difficult time.
Posted by Thomm Jones on August 4, 2022
My deepest and sincere condolences. When I heard the news of Joanne's passing I was weak in the knees. Although I was just a co-worker she made me feel like family. She was the sweet Auntie that would ring yo neck "with her prayers". I could come to her with any issue and she would talk it out and help me to make sense of it. She will be & has been missed. Rest in our Heavenly Fathers arms. 
Posted by Eric Weems on August 4, 2022
My heart is sad and heavy. Joanne Pittman's spirit, laughter, kindness, and energy - all bundled up in a no-nonsense package of truth and wisdom - will be sorely missed. Thank you Joanne. May God's love and peace be with all of Joanne's family and friends - and know, anyone deeply loved we can never lose, for all that we deeply love becomes a part of us.
Posted by Howard James on August 4, 2022
JoAnne, thank you for the many times you assisted me on work related matters. I am most thankful for the conversations we had not related to work, but your keen insight about life was what I looked forward to the most. A great human being and true professional, you are missed! My prayers for strength and peace for to your family. 
Posted by Joyce Mayeda on August 4, 2022
My deepest sympathy goes out to Joanne’s family. Joanne always took the time in providing guidance with the utmost professionalism and care whenever I was seeking answers. I trusted and relied on the information that she provided. Her smile, down-to-earth matter, and even her feistiness will always be in my memories and heart.
Posted by Andrea Kropf on August 4, 2022
Dear Pittman family,

I've known JoAnne through work for many years. She could always be counted on to address the issue and end the conversation with a joke or laugh. She was a sweet woman, who bettered the lives of so many people-professionally and personally. I will remember her fondly. May you find comfort during this time.  
Posted by Reginald Lee on August 4, 2022
Ms. Joanne - Thanks so much for all you did for me and the Fort Worth Office. You always displayed excellence in your work, along with a mothering quality that was so beneficial to me and others. You will truly be missed!

Sending condolences to the Pittman family. Joanne was very special to me not only as colleagues but more as a friend. She was a very sweet, honest and straight-forward person who spoke from the heart even when she was "laying down the law" when necessary. I will always miss my "next door" neighbor and friend who taught me so much over the years. I will always cherish our heart-to-heart conversations because she always knew when I needed a hug, words of wisdom or a swift kick. Sending prayers to the family and friends as we mourn the loss of this beautiful woman. Rest in Peace Joanne.

JoAnne's heart reached all the way to the West coast. She could take an ordinary task and find a way to build a connection with it. And there is no doubt that she has connections all over the world! May her legacy live on forever as a shining example, and may her memory always be a blessing.
Posted by Risikat Oshodi on August 2, 2022
Joanne - I am truly speechless. We have worked together for the past 4 years in the Office of Human Resources and it has been a delight to know you. I have gained so much knowledge from you. We had just spoke a couple weeks back and I still cannot believe that you are gone. I will miss you. Thank you for always being you! My sincerest condolences to the family. My prayer is that God will be with you all in these times.

My condolences to the Pittman Family. I was so sad to hear the news that Joanne transitioned. She truly was a sweet person with an amazing soul that helped me so much, more than I think she realized. She showed me how to take the commuter bus riding it with me the first time when I became sick and could no longer take the Metro. Sometimes it is just the simple things that make people special and Joanne surely was that. I hope that you can find peace and comfort in the memories that you shared. Joanne will be missed I just thought of her today and I am sure that I will have more days ahead that I will think of her and miss her. I am not sure on how we will fill the void, but God knows best. My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family. Many blessings and much love always.... Cordelia Bostic

Aunt JoAnne,

I am so heartbroken to know that you are no longer with us. You always stayed on us to do our best and keep our heads above the clouds. I remember all the times we spent together as a family; the sound of your laughter made us all laugh. You will always be with us in our hearts and memories. I love you so much, and I will miss you.

RIP Aunt JoAnne.

Please accept my condolences on the loss of Ms. Joanne Pittman. Of her many attributes, the most I will remember is her kindness. To possess such kind-heartedness was not only a gift, but inspiring to many of us. I will deeply miss her and hope you, her family, may find some comfort in knowing that many of us had the privilege of knowing her and having our lives touched by her. May she rest with in peace.

To the Pittman family,

Please accept my heartfelt condolences. JoAnne was an amazing colleague, but even more so an amazing person. That smile of hers and that giggle, I know you know what I'm referencing, brought smiles and shared laughter to us all. I will miss her more that I'll ever be able to convey. If she was this effective at work, the pain of losing a family member must be compounded. May you be assured that JoAnne made a huge impact on countless employees and made lasting friendships. Wishing you peace and comfort as you grieve this enormous loss.

-Jill

I am in disbelief of your passing Aunt Joanne, never thought I would be here writing this tribute to you. I know we all have to leave this earth one day, just wasn’t ready to see you go so soon, so fast. I will miss our talks and laughs we shared when I would come over and you do my taxes. Thanks you for making sure I handled my business when it came to tax season for over 20 yrs. Thank you for your advice and wisdom and all you did for me and my family. I will miss your smile, even your bossiness who would of thought that I am going to miss that but because of you everyone has to take their shoes off before they walk on my carpet I can go on and on, Our memories with you will last forever . Rest In Paradise auntie, God has an another Angel I love you and I will forever miss you. Until we meet again

She was such a resource, she knew so much about so many things and she was always willing to help or point you in the right direction. Rest well my friend, you will forever be missed. My prayers and sympathy are with the family.
