Thanks for all the kind words on teh SO's page.  Mariser has a way with words that I do not. JoAnne always attacked life so to speak.  For example, two years ago at the age of 76 she used her truck to help round up cattle on my  sisters farm.  Dicky had broke his arm and needed help, she said let me drive.  She never quit driving and living her life her way until two months ago.  And then she kept control making all of her medical decisions except for the final one.  I made that one and it was the hardest thing I ever had to do.  She will be sorely missed.

    She looks like a sweet lady and from the things I have read about her she was really special. Rest in peace, JoAnne.

    What a great lady. I wish I knew her but just reading your memories makes me smile. She will always be in your hearts.
    My condolences.

    lordk sez, "She never quit driving…"heh. much to the chagrin of those of us who knew and loved her. riding with joanne was an…erm… *interesting* experience *. even so, she never got in a wreck or had a traffic ticket (plenty of warnings, but never a ticket). unlike me… * where 'interesting' actually means 'hair-raising' ;P
