  • Dear Greg and Girls,
    We remember Jonnie from back in the Welcome Wagon days, during the mid 1970s. What fun we had! Such laughing! In later years, she’d come to our garage sales at The Rose of Sherron, and we’d laugh, again, about all the good times we shared.
    You and your families have our deepest sympathy. She will be dearly missed.
    Marge and Bill Sherron

  • I was one of Jonnie’s professors at NCSC. I also knew her when she worked at the Independent Living Center. She was one of the finest, most caring, and capable students we ever had at NCSC and in the field of human services. Her life was truly a blessing to so many.

  • I have many sweet childhood memories of Aunt Jonnie and am sorry I didn’t get together with her when we connected again a few years ago. She was always kind and loving to me, and she continued being that caring, giving person throughout her life. I want to send love and condolences to her family who obviously meant so much to her.

  • Kim and Beth, we are so sorry to learn of your great loss. Your mother was a lovely person. We sure will keep you, your dad, your sister, and your families in our prayers. May your loved ones, your faith, and your memories bring you comfort as you mourn. Over time, the same memories that bring tears will slowly begin to bring smiles. Your mom will always be with you. Our deceased loved ones are always with us because we continue to love them. Your mom is, no doubt, smiling on all of you and loving you from Heaven. God bless you!
