    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 never had the pleasure of meeting Joann but I have worked with her sister LIz for many years and just love her. I know what a close and wonderful family this is. I always tell Liz I am so envious since this is what I wanted and I am an only child and so were my parents. It can be lonely at times but I always share my feelings with Liz. Thank God I have 4 children, 8 grandchildren and 5 greats. They fill my life with joy. I have met some of the other sisters that reside in Fl. and they are always so kind and friendly. I met mom a couple of times and always enjoyed a few words with her and thought she was the sweetest lady and of course went to her funeral to show my respect to the family.
    I send my deepest sympathy and prayers to the entire family and may everyone traveling be safe. R.I.P Joann

    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 .

  6. Nicole Perniciaro

    Aunt Joann I’m not sure I ever properly thanked you for being such a huge support and encouragement to me over the past couple years. I really appreciate all you have done for me. You’re the true example of a Godly woman. I truly am so happy that you have been reunited with Vin but sad for the rest of us, especially Uncle Vin and Marcie. I’m happy you’re not suffering in pain anymore but if definitely be lying if I said I wasn’t sad. I’m blessed to have had you in my life. I love you Aunt Joann and can’t wait for the day we can all be together again. I take comfort you are resting in our Saviors arms. Till we meet again. In HIS Love, Your niece Nikki

    Not a day goes by my dear friend that you are not in my thoughts leaving a tear in my eye in missing you.
    I think often of all the funny things you wrote to me on paper and in emails throughout the years and I still laugh. I kept every letter, card and email and some times I go back and read them all over again. You were the strongest most Godly women I had the privilege to call my best friend. You will forever be closer to me than a sister, I admired your strength your spirit that reflected the love of Jesus. You told me not to be sad for you when your time came because now you are no longer suffering . You will be home in your new glorious body with God and your precious son whom you missed beyond words. Oh Jo, I know your now happier than you have ever been and this is my peace now. We had many emails about our meeting one day in heaven drinking tea together enjoying each others stories, laughing and imagining what heaven is like , you so much wanted to go home. And now my dearest friend, you are home and now you know what heaven is like. I have no words to describe how very much I miss you every day and I can not wait to see you again. God must have smiled when you walked through heaven’s gates and I picture your son running into your arms.
    My thoughts and prayers are with all your family but mostly with your devoted pillar of strength, your husband Vinny who loved you unconditionally. No doubt God put him in your life knowing this man would forever stand beside you on that path you had ahead of you. And Marcie who couldn’t do enough to comfort you and pour out her love to you. May God give all of you His comfort and peace in the years ahead until we are all together once again for eternity.
    Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his faithful servants. Palms 116:15

    My Dear Joann, I am so blessed that I knew you I met Joanne when I was 17 years old . She’s the One that taught me the relationship to be close with God praying with her was so special to me it inspired me to this day I am 56 And prayer is so a part of my life . We were both pregnant with our first sons together Tommy and Vinny Jr .. what a blessing And we kept our sons together we kept that bond . I can always pick up a conversation with Joanne even if we didn’t talk for years . I thank God every day we had such a strong bond Jo
