She and her husband Ron had lived in Volcano, California and because of health problems for both she and her husband, as he had had ongoing surgeries for a brain tumor, Joanna's art work was what was sustaining their income. At that time, in 2008, Joanna was in remission from breast cancer, but recently, in the last six months of her life she had a blood test revealing she had stage 5 cancer in many areas of her body, and was receiving chemo and radiation treatments. A few years ago they had moved to Arizona near her husband Ron's brother and sister-in-law. Ron is in good hands but the loss of Joanna will be difficult to bear. May God comfort their hearts at this time.
