JoAnne was born March 19, 1938, in Cuba City, WI, to John and Cecilia (Keleher) Ware.

JoAnne worked as a Director of Radiology for St. Mary’s Hospital, in Milwaukee, WI. JoAnne enjoyed attending the Milwaukee Symphony with her dear friends. She learned to love the Green Bay Packers from her mother. She became an avid fan and followed them throughout the years.

In 2014, she moved to Des Moines to be near her sister, nieces and nephew. She enjoyed her new friends and staff at Senior Suites of Urbandale; while she might not admit it - she was a Bingo "pro" winning her fair share of monthly titles.

JoAnne is survived by her sister, Pat Geier of West Des Moines, IA; brother, Larry (Doris) Ware of Sun City, AZ; as well as many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her brothers, John Kenneth Ware and Louis Lloyd Ware; sister, Jeannette Wedig; and her parents.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the St. Rose School. Online condolences will be welcomed at
