She married Ed, her beloved husband of 64 years in 1955, and lived in Campbell for 33 years before moving to North Olmsted, Willoughby, and then Mentor. Her children and grandchildren all knew they were each cherished and the most important part of her life. She was forever supportive, caring, and loving and very proud of them.

She is also survived by her dear friend, Betty; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Joanne was preceded in death by her parents, John W. and Mary (nee Kenekes) Opincar; siblings, John, Rachel, and Mary; brother and sister-in-law (Donald and Evelyn Nelson); brothers-in-law, Herman Carano, and Bob Scullen; and nephew, Colin McKnight.
Mass of Christian Burial will be 11 a.m. May 11, 2019, at St. Bede the Venerable Church, 9114 Lakeshore Boulevard, Mentor, where a visitation will be held from 10 a.m. until the time of the Mass. A luncheon will follow the Mass in St. Bede’s Reception Hall.
