JoAnn worked at Oakwood Country Club as a receptionist for 25 years. She never met a stranger and was loved by everyone who had the privilege of knowing her.
Her family was her greatest joy. She was passionate about caring for her family, cooking, singing, and dancing. JoAnn was a generous woman who helped others and loved to visit and reminisce of times past and present. She was a woman of faith who loved her Lord and Savior.
She was preceded in death by her young son, Jeffrey; husband; parents, and a sister.
JoAnn is survived by three children, Sharon Gudan (Michael) of TN; Britt Wilkinson (Lori) of Enid; Vicki Hutcheson (Bobby) of Enid; sister, Lois Graves of Edmond; ten grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.
