I was in a lot of classes with Joanne.  She was really smart and she had a good sense of humor.  I can still hear her laugh; she would wrinkle up her nose when she laughed.

I remember that she was a straight 'A' student until she took typing class, in which she got a 'C,' and she wasn't happy about that.

I remember being on an intramural indoor hockey team with Joanne.  As I recall, we played in our uniforms and stocking feet in the gym.

Joanne passed away in March of 1990 in Portage, Ohio.  It's hard to believe she is gone.

In doing some research on our deceased classmates, I found this obituary for Joanne and thought you might like to read it, too.  Tomorrow, St. Joseph's Day, is the anniversary of her death.  She was just 37 when she died and she sadly left behind her two beloved sons, just four and nine years old.  Those little boys lost their mother and their father when he was imprisoned for Joanne's death.  It was a terrible tragedy.  Joanne was also survived by her parents, John and Lorraine Vohs, and sister Carol Vohs Johnson.  Joanne is buried in the Garden of Memories Cemetery, Kerrville, Texas.

I also learned Joanne was a graduate of Iowa State University and served in the Armed Forces.  We shared a table in Sister Marie's biology class and it was Joanne who dissected the frog on my behalf.  She probably deserves the credit for me passing that class.  Please keep Joanne and her two sons in your prayers.

Joanne Davis was a devoted mother to her two sons, an avid gardener, and a caring veterinarian and animal lover. She even served our nation in the armed forces. Her friends and coworkers mourned her loss when she mysteriously failed to return to work one day after a planned vacation. She was a very responsible person and her failure to call work or secure her animal patients raised immediate suspicion. Many months went by before her husband, Dale Davis, confessed the crime to his priest who successfully urged him to confess his crime to the police. She is missed by the many people and animals whose lives she touched. She deserved better than this.
