Born in Chicago, Illinois, Joanna moved to California as a young child and grew up in the Bay Area and attended Convent of the Sacred Heart. She was a committed volunteer and tireless supporter of the Medical Missionaries of Mary and of the St. Patrick’s Fathers of Kiltegan, Ireland. A committed mother and member of St. Simon’s Church in Los Altos, “Jojo” was known for her wisdom, compassion, creativity and sense of humor. She is survived by her mother, five daughters, five siblings, five grand children and great grandson. We celebrated her life with a funeral mass at St. Simon’s Church in Los Altos, Friday, June 29th at 2:30 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Medical Missionaries of Mary, 4425 West 63rd St Suite 100,

Chicago, IL 60629-5530 or donate online at website www.mmmusa.org.
