JoAnn was a cousin of mine.
Her father Joseph and my father James Oliver were half brothers.
After she left St. Clairsville I lost touch with her.
So sorry to just hear of her passing.

I met Joann in 1956 at The Elliott School of Business. She was such a wonderful, caring person, that I have remembered her all these years. My condolences to all her family.
