Dear family of Mrs. JoAnn Kornbau,

I did not know your mother, family member or loved one personally, but I do know Jeanne Waggoner, her daughter and family. I am a neighbor and friend. I am deeply sorry for your loss; may you be comforted by the memories that you all shared with your mother and grandmother in better times. What an accomplished lady she was and her many virtues are shared and instilled within the lovely daughter she had in Jeanne. I am grateful for her friendship. May JoAnn rest in heavenly peace.
