JoAnne Tackett Stover, 87, of Mansfield passed away Wednesday, April 26, 2017 at Arbors at Mifflin. Born on April 1, 1930 in Martel, OH she was the daughter of Frances J. and Irene M. (Anderson) Fitzgerald.

 

 

 

JoAnne attended St. Peter's High School and was a member of St. Peter's Catholic Church. She was a nurses aide at Twin Oaks Living and Learning Center for ten years and an Avon representative for twelve years. A family oriented person, JoAnne loved taking care of her family and spending time with her grandchildren. Her love extended to others as she was always willing to give someone a place to stay if needed. She valued holiday times and trips to visit her son in Las Vegas. A warrior in everyday life, she never had an enemy or came into contact with a stranger. JoAnne enjoyed reading, shopping, playing bingo and being with friends. She could always be found sitting on her front porch enjoying the sunshine.
