It was impossible not to be influenced by Joanne's positive attitude and upbeat demeanour.
She had a way of boosting the spirits of anyone she came into contact with, both on and off the ice.
Joanne was a special person who will be very sorely missed.
I'm sorry to hear of her passing; Joanne was such a pleasant person to talk to. She will be missed at skating by all of us who knew her. May she rest in peace!
Joanne often had long conversations with many people over the 2 hr skating session. I was one lucky enough to talk to her on many occasion about all the topics under the sun with wit, humour and a kindly nature. I know she rests in peace.
