JoAnn Wright

May 5, 1956 — January 5, 2022

JoAnn Wright

On December 13, 2021 our beautiful mother, wife, grandmother, sister and friend was called home to be with the Lord. She was hospitalized with Covid on November 22, 2021. Her immune system was severally impaired, and vaccination did not help her.

JoAnn was born May 5, 1956, to her parents Tess Pacheco and Anthony Gardoni. She was born on a military base in Germany but spent her youth in Palmdale, California along with two brothers and a sister, many cousins and large extended family. JoAnn graduated from Palmdale High in 1974.

She met her husband Stephen in 1980, and they spent 42 loving years together. JoAnn gave birth to three children, Nathaniel, Jocelynn, and Jared. They relocated to Utah in 1992, and built a strong family blessed with love. Most mothers would do anything for their children, but JoAnn truly went above and beyond to provide. Her love for her children was only rivaled by the joy she received from being a grandmother. JoAnn had two granddaughters, Kajsa and Avrey.

JoAnn was an extremely loving and generous person. She could be brutally truthful, but it was always because she wanted the best for the people she cared about.

She will be severely missed, but the tears are for us still in this fallen world. She was saved through the death of Jesus Christ and is now living in the promise of God with no more pain or sorrow. She is preceded in death by her mother, father, sister, and baby brother. She is survived by her loving husband, sons, daughter and son-in-law, Joseph, her two granddaughters, and her other younger brother, Anthony (Rocky) Gardoni.

A memorial service in her honor will held Saturday January 8, 2022 at 11:00 am at Alpine Church Layton Campus, 254 W 2675 N, Layton, Utah. The family will be hosting a light lunch following the memorial, also at Alpine church. All are welcome to attend.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations be made in JoAnn's honor to Alpine Church - a non-denominational bible believing church - for their generosity in providing all

Care entrusted to Lindquist’s Layton Mortuary, 1867 No. Fairfield Rd., Layton, Utah
