Dick and JoAnn had only been married less than a year when they embarked on a very improbable journey, and founded Pima Medical Institute on “a string and a prayer”. Together they built PMI through hard work and long hours. Jo’s favorite activity was graduation, as she enjoyed seeing students reach their dreams. JoAnn was known for her handmade quilts, homemade birthday cards, family reunions, Jeep rides in the early years, and her true love for dogs. There was never a homeless dog if JoAnn was around! She loved and was loved by her family and friends, and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
