  1. I was lucky enough to work with Joanne, for many years at KISS=FM.

    I am numb and very sad. The last time I saw Joanne we had a coffee – and I had a sinking feeling, it was her way of saying ‘goodbye’.

    R.I.P – dear lady.

    The pain is palpable, losing friends. I know she is in a better place and she is no longer suffering.

    My condolences to her husband, Ted, and her legion of friends and fans.

    • I met Joanne at the JR Country Club,when I first started working there and was instantly, drawn to her and we struck up a conversation, that led to , an infinite, zest of adventure , where we laughed, cried, at times, our hearts broken and through it all, I found a loyal, loving friend, who stood by me, with no questions asked and a privilege and honor, to blessed, and embraced as a trusted friend.
