Her artistic creations were a reflection of her vibrant spirit and boundless creativity winning her many awards throughout the years. In addition to visual arts, Joanne had a flair for writing poetry, beautifully capturing emotions and experiences with her words. An avid astronomer, Joanne marveled at the wonders of the universe and eagerly studied the night sky. Over the years, Joanne was an active member of a dart league, where she enjoyed the competitive spirit and camaraderie of the game.
