STASKO, Joanne Lynn
January 23, 1950 — December 15, 2020
Sweet, sensitive, and caring Joanne Stasko passed peacefully with her only child, Lynne, at her side on December 15, 2020, after a difficult 2-year battle with cancer. Joanne was a fun-loving spirit; she loved to dance, and to sing along to country music (Anne Murray, Linda Ronstadt, Dolly, and Patsy Cline to name a few). She was crafty and into a good SNL sketch, particularly from the 80s. Joanne battled with mental illness for much of her adult life; she rallied back time and time again. She is survived by her daughter, Lynne; sister Rena Jones and nephew Justin; and sister Jacqueline Spence, nephew Tyler & grandnephew Milo, and niece Jordynn. Although her immediate family was small, she was loved by many.
Due to Covid-19, there will not be a service.
