On May 23, 2019 the world lost an amazing woman when JoAnn Miller left us to join her maker in heaven. This memorial fund is our way of honoring the woman we loved. Let me tell you about her. She was a loving, attentive, understanding and compassionate wife of 53 years. JoAnn and Garry lived a love-story beyond compare that inspired us all.
JoAnn was Mom first to Jina and Mike. And then to our childhood friends, then entire football teams and volleyball squads. She expanded her family to our college friends, then our spouses and even their friends.
JoAnn was a grandmother to Tori, Alex, Stone and Cameron. Then she added the children of our friends. She was “Grandma” to more then we can count. Mom so naturally brought anyone who needed family into ours that we all wondered how we became “Family”. She became Mom to everyone she met. She always had a smile and kind word. When we would ask her, “How do you do it?” she would just smile and giggle and say with “God’s help.”
If Mom heard of anyone needing something, she gave. She would give food, clothes, time, money or anything needed. Grandma was never sitting down, she always had to be doing or helping.
Our goal with this fund is to allow Garry to continue her loving generosity when the need arises. Please help us honor JoAnn with a gift.
