JoAnn was a Sweet Young Lady I graduated with from Northwest high School in St. Louis. We dated briefly in 1968 and she was a great dancer. Tragically she was taken much too soon and myself and my classmates Miss Her. We have Great Respect for the Police and JoAnn. She Was a proud officer and Would have Accomplished many Great Things! Love You JoAnn and We'll See You Soon In Heaven! NWHS Class of 1970!
