Having been your children's baby sitter about 1957 and 1958 I thought I would send an old photo but it's in another tribute. You and mom worked together at the Fort Dodge Country Club for a few years.

My Sincere Condolences.

Roseanne Parsons on Aug 6, 2020

Dear JoAnne:
I remember you as a fun person with a terrific sense of humor. Although I haven't seen you in about 60 years. You and my mom Katherine Brezovan worked together at the Fort Dodge Country Club.

My condolences to your family.

Jim, Jerry, Janet, and Jeff
So sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. A part of all of us has passed with her. She was like family to
us, and shared many pleasurable family activities. Mabel Ann loved her from their first meeting, and
appreciated all the kindnesses afforded to her. She was a great friend and a great person and will
always have a place in our hearts. All of you and her will be in our prayer.
