JoAnn's death was a shock. We canvassed the entire area for any evidence and searched for her missing revolver.

Her parents were devasted, but were so gracious for the support they received from the County PD, Chief Battelle, and BackStoppers.

I never met JoAnn, but all who knew her and worked with her in the 1st Precinct, were in shock and disbelief.

May you rest in Honored Glory, we will never forget you.

when Joanne was a dispatcher I had just graduated from the academy. When she entered the academy I had already become an RN. I worried about her because of her extrordinary kindness as a human being. When I reread the case against her assailant, it simply becomes hard to digest. Love you Joanne..a real angel

I lived in Whispering Lake Appartments just down the street from where she met her unforunate physical end. She was simply a very nice person. When you don’t break the law you don’t have to worry about anything else. She was good people.

JoAnn and I attended Northwest High School together and graduated in 1970. We dated briefly in High School and she was a sweet, kind, caring young lady. She was also very talented and a great dancer. I think of her often and she was taken from us all much too soon. Thank you for your service and Prayers for you and everyone who knew and loved you.

We graduated high school together. Northwest class of 1970. When I heard of your murder. I was stunned. You were always a good person who lived people and laughter. I think of you often when I pass that corner off Old Halls Ferry Road when you were taken far too soon. Prayers for your family. You will always be remembered. Thank you for your service.

Such a loss

I recently saw this on the ID Channel. Even though I didn't know this young woman, I almost cried. The person who did this horrific crime should have gotten the death penalty. You are so very much missed, young lady. May you RIP.

I recently saw a show on ID channel which told the story of this Lady's death. I didn't know her but I was very touched by the story. She did so much good for people and that's what she was doing on the nite she was murdered. No one interviewed on the show had ANY bad things to say about her. She always seemed to go out of her way to help others. There are some cops in every city in America who need to read about her death and learn about the sacrifices she made. You know who you are!

Rest in peace JoAnn

Love you. Miss you.

I can't believe it has been 24 years since you were taken. Way to early. I think back all the fun we had and how I looked up to you. I remember your talks and advice. I still listen to your advice and it has taken me to a very happy place. I know you are having the time of your life. God Speed till I see you again. Thank you for giving your all.

I was 4 when your life when your life was taken. You and my father worked together, tonight he told me find stories about you and reminded me that you would often come to our house to visit. Thank you for your service. My family will always remember you.

Joanne spent many nights visiting with us the emergency room of Christian north east hospital. She made us laugh and stood by our sides during ems calls.
We will always remember the sadness that night we lost you.
