Special Note to from Elizabeth Goodman Hallowell:

Gary, Barbara, and Terri,

I remember Joanne warmly and kindly as she was always those things to me when we talked…at West High…we both members of the Class of 68…I came from Williams, Wilson and Bettendorf Jefferson and have been a member of the reunion community all these years…on board since 2001 and along with others made a great effort to locate and stay in touch with all in our class to our recent 50th reunion.

I have 4 Goodman siblings along with myself who graduated from west and even more family extended…as does my married family…the Hallowell’s…also with 5 total siblings who graduated from West High. I know we have crossed paths with your Family there as well…and Joanne is well-remembered…

I want to extend my deepest condolences and see the loving extended family Joanne has…I left IA for MN where I was born in 1950…in 1972 when I graduated from Wartburg College with classmate Lyle Hallowell and our son Glenn Allan Hallowell…I am very familiar with the Vera French community and so glad for Joanne’s interests and friends throughout her life along with you her loving family.

Bless Joanne forever and each of you and all the family…Broadcast WWE wrestling…we even had Jesse Ventura as governor…a well-known wrestler…feel free to contact me if you would like…on behalf of our class…of 68…we wish you love and healing in memory of Joanne…
