She was born on January 21,1938 in Holladay, Utah to James Donal Huntsman and Viola Miller Huntsman. She grew up in American Fork, Lehi, and Pleasant Grove, Utah on the family farm and had 2 sisters and 2 brothers. Joanne graduated from American Fork High School before studying at LDS Business College and later went to work as a Credit Manager at Zellerbach for 25+ years.

Joanne met and married James Logie and they were blessed with two sons: James and John. Joanne and James Logie later divorced. Joanne met and married James Waters later in life and then was divorced.

Joanne raised her two boys as a single mom and did a wonderful job. Her family meant everything to her. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and devoted her time and energy to serving in various callings.

Though she also loved shopping, crafting, and sewing, Joanne’s favorite role was that of a grandparent. She treasured her time with her grandkids and loved being their Gran. We couldn’t have asked for a better mom, grandma, sister, and friend and will miss Joanne everyday. Her memory will live on in the hearts of all those who loved her.

Joanne was preceded in death by her parents James Donal Huntsman and Viola Miller and her siblings: Donna Huntsman, Luana Pead, and Eldon Huntsman. She is survived by her children: James Huntsman (Christine), John Logie; her brother Gordon Huntsman (Donna), her grandchildren: Amanda Bray (Jason), Thea Logie, Harriet Manwill (TJ), Matt Huntsman (Abby), and Bradley Logie (Kaylee); as well as her 7 great grandchildren.
