Mom loved to grow and preen flowers in the yard, camping was one of her favorite activities, and when home, she was an avid book reader preferring a good written story over a television version every time. Some weekend nights Mom and Dad would “step-out” and go dancing downtown. One of Moms’ favorite activities was to go fishing at Strawberry; Dad would bait the hook, throw it out into the lake, and then Mom would take over and “hook-em” and reel them in by herself.

After 62 years of marriage, Bill passed away. They have 4 children: Lyndia (Jim) Howland-Grey, Gary (Margie) Moser, Thomas (Julie) Moser, Michael (Thom) Masat-Moser.

JoAnn was a dedicated Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother and Great-Great-Grandmother. She loved her family and loved spending time with all family members and extended family. She is loved and missed by all.
