It is with great sorrow I am writing to say that Joanne passed away on 
Wednesday 28th December 2022.

With Mike by her side she left us after a two year valiant fight against 
Triple Negative Breast Cancer.

Joanne was always busy creating. Be it dressmaking, knitting, jewellery making, upholstery, spinning, weaving or tending to her beautiful garden. She was an inspiration.

Her battle with Lyme disease for nearly 20 years brought her many challenges but with it many great friends.  Despite her own health struggles she never stopped being an advocate for others on their difficult journey though Lyme. Even at the end of her life her efforts to help further the understanding of this dreadful disease never ceased.

Joanne will be desperately missed by Mike, Rachel, Rebecca and her 7 grandchildren.
