Joanna, I can still remember all the wonderful times we shared. When we first got Nissi, our first horse, and you and Doreen could barely pick up a bucket of water with 2 hands, it wasn't long before you girls were carrying a large bucket of water in each hand or tossing those 70 pound bales of hay around. Or when you had to hunt through the neighborhood for a loose horse or our runaway sheep and goats. The winter days when John and I would come in from the farm to nice hot cups of coffee at your kitchen table. The long talks you and I would have.  Watching our kids grow up together on the farm.  Great times, - but now you are enjoying even greater times with Jesus  Tell John we miss his squirrel stew.      Love you, save a spot for us.

There is not many people who haven't had the pleasure of attending coffee clutch sessions, as we call them, around Joanna's table. I don't know when you couldn't stop by her house during the day & be welcomed with a fresh cup of coffee. I'll never forget the 5-5:30 am calls and a voice saying, "Put the coffee on lady". We were like our own psychologists, hashing out our lives. LOL! And 3:00pm again " Hey lady put the coffee on" we had to discuss our day. We would shew the kids back to play so we could get in a little gossip too. Funny how after the kids grew up they could finally join our coffee clutch sessions & the mystery of what went on. LOL! Jo did not like coffee mugs, she loved pretty little tea cups. So you will find in my cabinet among all the mugs, a pretty little tea cup. Her special cup I kept for her only. We have been friends for over 30 years & she has been like a second mother to my 5 kids. During a rough patch in our lives, out of the blue she would show up with 2 gallons of milk & food items. And expect nothing in return. She had such a love for children and animals. And she loved cooking & entertaining friends & family. And cook she could! Her meatballs were marketable as well as her sauce & lasagna. All we would have to say to my son was "Joanna made lasagna" He was there in a flash. There has been so many wonderful times throughout the 30 plus years of our friendship, the farm memories, and many happy times & sad times I could fill volumes. She will be deeply missed. And I hold up my coffee in salute, honor & memory of my beloved friend, "This cup is for you lady."

Many years have passed and our large beautiful family takes different paths in life, but that doesn’t mean your never thought about. The last time we were together we reminisced and laughed about our childhood years. May the Angels be at your side as you rest peacefully ❤️

Joanne was mother to Danny and Lewis Minnella, Richard Williams and Melissa Mitchell and loving grandmother to AAliyah and Brenden. Joanne loved to cook Italian meals and made the best gravy.  In her spare time she loved to read and enjoyed the company of her many friends. She was an animal lover and always was willing to adopt another pet.  We had many laughs over the years and I wish we had more time together. She will be missed.
