  1. Sal Jr

    You fought the good fight Aunt Joann, to the very end. Your life here may be over but you will be remembered by many. Life is strange, everyone has their own path to follow. Regardless of what may lay on those paths, whatever it is, it is meant for the one who trods it. Some things are beyond comprehension but if you are with your son, “My Cousin Vinny”, I am envious. Thank you, for raising such a man that helped shape my future. Although I am envious, my time here is not done. I have a duty to raise my own sons now, so hopefully they will help shape the futures of many others, like Vinny did for me. I love you.

  2. Jeronne Hale

    My heart is heavy for the Perniciaro Family. Aunt Jo thank you for always making me feel welcomed. I pray for your peace and salvation. To Uncle Vinny and Marcie, I love you both, I’m so sorry for your loss. An Angel was lost here on earth but gained in heaven. Her pain is no more, she will be forever loved and missed. Please let me know if I can help with anything.

    My deepest condolences,
    Jeronne Hale

    I met Joanne when we were teenagers over 40 years ago until she found me onFB. She was just as precious and special as I remembered . Sending prayers for comfort and peace to all who loved her .
