She began her professional career with The Travelers Insurance Company, working first in the Casualty Department and later becoming the Executive Assistant to the Manager, Mr. Leigh Bush. She retired after thirty-five years with the company. After a brief retirement, JoAnn’s strong work ethic caused her to enter into a full-time position with Women’s Diagnostic Center where she worked for eight years. She again retired and spent many hours baby-sitting for her many great nieces and nephews and visiting with friends at Royal Oaks Condominiums. She spent many hours playing games with the children, taking them to the park or to the Mall and helping out when family needed her. She was a selfless person who always put others first. JoAnn was a strong Christian woman and she could recite hymns and Bible verses she learned as a child. She loved to read and to tend to her small garden, but she enjoyed family gatherings the most. Her favorite time was to host family at the holidays in her lovely home. JoAnn enjoyed traveling and began traveling internationally with her two aunts and her sister Elizabeth. She was a treasure for her family because she always kept diligent records and often had to supply dates and needed information when family members needed details for work, school or travel forms.
