JoAnn’s first job was with Ransom and Randolf in Toledo. She worked 14 years for Metamora State Bank, and 8 years at Key Bank. She enjoyed golfing at Valleywood, playing Euchre with friends, and most of all, spending time with family and her grandkids. She was always on the go whether it was shopping with her daughter, taking her grandkids to the zoo or a walk in the park or vacationing in Florida with her husband. She always saw the bright side of everything and she sure knew how to laugh and live life to it’s fullest.
