JoAnn retired from National Rejectors and was owner of Ernie's Body shop and Wrecker Service. Baptist by faith, she was known for her laughter and smile. In recent years, she lived for her great grandkids and the joy they brought to her life. She enjoyed going to antique shops looking for all kinds of collectibles but especially dishes, she LOVED shopping, shopping and more shopping and enjoyed going out to eat. Rain, sleet, or snow, you would find her at Vermon's Hair Salon every Friday morning for the past 30+ years.
