Joan “Joanie” Reese passed away on Sunday, July10, 2022 at the age of 73. She was the daughter of the late George Eugene Reese and Louanna McPherson Reese, and sister to the late John “Buddy” Reese, the late Natalie “Cooky” Reese, and the late Susann “Sue” Myler. Joanie is survived by two sisters: Kate Wells and Genny White; three brother-in-law: James Myler, Glen Wells, and Roy White; one sister-in-law, Paula Reese; and many nieces and nephews.
Joanie was blind from birth, but that didn’t stop her from enjoying life to its fullest. She had a personality like no other. Joanie loved to sing and dance; her passion was music. She had a knack for rock-and-roll bands and could name every Beatles son, the lyrics, and the year is was released. She cherished holidays and special occasions with family, especially Christmas and birthdays, when she could enjoy some of her favorite things like, coke, cake, ice cream and gifts. She also loved to be greeted in the morning with a cup of coffee and in the afternoon with a coke. We hope that the next time you enjoy one of Joanie’s favorite things, you’ll think of her and smile.
Joanie was loved by all who met her and will be greatly missed by those who had the privilege of truly knowing her.
