Condolence From: Judy McNulty
Condolence: Sending sympathy, condolences and care to all who knew and loved Joanne. Especially to Matty, as he was known when I met him so many years ago now. Joanne and I competed for the same position at a company in Rochester in the early 80s. We both ended up working there (in different positions) and becoming friends. I moved away after almost 7 years and came way out west but... tho distance separated us, to our credit :) we never lost touch. Christmas cards mostly, and the occasional phone call or email. Oh, how I admired (and still do) that beautiful woman's strength, courage and tenacity. Wishing Joanne peace, free of earthly discomfort and hoping for comfort for her loved ones; strength from the warm memories you shared with a woman I was very fortunate to know. ❤

Condolence: I am so sad that such a sweet, inspirational woman was taken away way too soon. I met Joanne 50 years ago at Robert Morris and we had a couple rocky roads together but also such fond memories. I was lucky to reconnect with her after all these years and we laughed about the crazy things we did to each other back at school. I feel so lucky to have had the last few months talking to her almost daily. It's funny how after 50 years you can pick up where you left off as though not a day passed. I will miss her sweet voice and contagious laugh. She was so accepting of her fate and felt she had lived a wonderful life and was looking forward to her next journey. I hope her new journey is all she hoped and I hope that Rich and her family will always feel her love surround you. She loved you all so much and wants you all to be happy. I am sorry I cannot be there for the service but Joanne will always have a special place in my heart.

Condolence: Since we were thrown together as room mates in 1967 we have kept a friendship of the heart like no other. How I will miss all our private jokes, (marsh mellow lips and turtle-fly). We never missed celebrating birthdays for 50 years. I will never ever forget you Joey and my life is less without you!
So sorry for Mrs.'S', Rich, the boys and all Joanne's beloved family. I was blessed to share her all these years.

Condolence: It's with deepest sympathy that I write. To say I'm sorry for your loss doesn't say enough. We worked together at CCI for 10 years. We shared a lot of good times... she was a courageous lady to the end. A light has gone out with her passing.
