JoAnn holds a special place in my heart. I met her and Dick over 40 years ago and when I retired to Post Lake in 2015 she thought of me as an extended member of the McNutt family. Her considerate personality and quick wit brightened everyone’s day. We have many great memories and I smile as I remember them and reread the many cards she sent over the years. She will be missed.

JoAnn was more than a neighbor to us. She was like family and was always so thoughtful and kind to us and our kids whenever we were “up north.” She always had an “extra” package of cookies or cupcakes for them. I will miss her Facebook posts and comments that were always positive and encouraging. We will miss her. Thoughts and prayers to her entire family. ❤️

My Auntie JoAnn always treated me like another grandchild. She'd send me a birthday gift every year as a kid and send cards all the time, just to say hello and that she loved me. She was funny, witty and loving. She will be missed deeply.

Jo Ann was a mother to me. . I will miss the times stopping over and having coffee and talking with her. Our family grew up with the McNutts and she will be missed. Sorry to hear of your loss Dick.
