I am Sandra Vencill's daughter. I just found out about JoAnn's death tonight about 9pm. I am so sorry. If I would have known sooner, I would have brought my mom to the graveside service or dropped by Resthaven to pay our respects.

Both my mom and I thought the world of JoAnn. We have missed her since she left the Sunnyview Apartments and moved to Kansas City. Mom enjoyed being her table mate and friend for the past 3-4 years.

They had so many good visits over meals. Mom felt a great responsibility to get JoAnn to the dining room on time for every meal. Truthfully, it was the blind leading the blind, but my Mom has always been a caregiver, and she has continued that even though her own health has declined in recent years.

JoAnn was such a sweet person and had the best stories to tell about the olden days. My husband grew up on a farm near where JoAnn lived in Jamesport and remembered JoAnn and Nathan having a pet deer that they tied a bow around his neck during deer season so that no hunters would shoot him.

She loved it when I took my dog, Marley, to the apartments to see her. She never failed to ask about Marley every time that I saw her.

Fly high, JoAnn!! You will be missed by all who knew and loved you!!

Love, Sandra Vencill and Terri Henderson
