    I am so sad. We taught at Trinity Day School many years ago. She was so kind to her students and always had a smile on her face. We will miss her.

    I was so saddened to see this. I taught with Jo Ann so many years ago at Trinity. She was an excellent and loving teacher to her little people. And so much fun to be around. Prayers of peace for her loved ones.

    My love and sympathy to Joanne’s family. I was a friend of her mother, Mary Alice Debney. When the Debney girls were around, there was so much fun and joy. Joanne will be missed by many. Psalm 116:15 says: “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.” Heavens bells are ringing for Joanne, and there is so much more to come! To GOD be all glory!

    I am so sorry to learn of “Mrs. Lane’s” passing. She was Abby’s first preschool teacher at Trinity all of those years ago….what a doll! I will always remember this beautiful lady with the huge smile and most outgoing personality! Hugs to her family.
