Known by all her knew her as Joanie died peacefully on Sunday, August 2nd surrounded by a team of outstanding health care professionals at the Covid-19 ward at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.  She was 26 days shy of her 89th birthday and 90th year on earth!

Born and raised an only child in Jamestown, NY to Roy and Mildred (Mimi) Gustavson, Joanie graduated with a degree in English from Stephens College in Columbia, MO and was fondly known as Gus by her classmates.

After college, Joanie migrated east where she married Robert Eugene Lincoln and lived in Washington, DC where her husband practiced law.  After the birth of their first son Robert Todd, they moved cross country to Palo Alto where her two youngest sons were born, Jeffrey Scott and Christopher Brent—raising them for the next twenty plus years in nearby Los Altos Hills.
