I remember Joanne while growing up around the corner from her. She would make me laugh and I loved her smile. Joanne may you rest in the heart of Jesus and Mary. God bless her family.
I met Joanne while working for the East Providence Rec Dept. We had lots of fun at the old Riverside Jr. building. Joanne’s parents and Seth were amazing with Joanne.
I had the pleasure of meeting Joanne back in the late 70s and early 80s when I worked for The East Providence Recreation Dept. She was so warm and loving and could always make me smile. May she rest in peace and eternal happiness.
Joanne your smile will always be remembered at SPRED, Prayers Daily.
May your memory be a blessing, Joanne. Remembering you from “back in the day” 40+ years from the neighborhood when we were all children.
Joanne will be sorely missed! My deepest condolences.
