Joanne enjoys helping others wherever needed. She is happiest when events involve her growing family, which currently encompasses a husband, two adult daughters, two sons-in-law, three granddaughters, one grandson, and two very special cats.
Another of her passions is travel and experiencing faraway lands. Her trips have led her to Hawaii, Australia, Ireland (the most beautiful place on earth!), Canada, and many of the United States.
