JoAnn was a nanny to four wonderful children for many years before owning and operating Pigs R Us Catering and Giese Concession with her husband for over 20 years. JoAnn enjoyed butterflies, flowers, hosting Packer and Nascar parties, decorating for every holiday, camping, and going for long walks around the zoo. She had a one of a kind sense of humor and loved to make people laugh. She was a gentle, kind-hearted woman, and she will be missed.

The family thanks the Marshfield Medical Center, especially nurses Mabel and Shana, and Wells Nature View Assisted Living for taking such good care of JoAnn.
