Joann married Jack Senninger in 1970 and had three wonderful children, they were later divorced.
Joann had a long and rewarding career as an RN, working at the old McKay-Dee Hospital, for Dr. Leo Stevenson and finally at Davis Hospital. She was an excellent mentor to new nursing students as many praised her for her kind and gentle guidance. She suffered a stroke in 2005 which ended her nursing career.
Joann battled several heath issues over the last 16 years, but always remained positive and happy about life. She loved growing her flowers so that everyone could enjoy their beauty, reading, and taking care of her stray cats. A very special thank you to her sister Julie and brother in law Larry for always taking care of our mom. We are forever grateful for all their love and support of our family.
