She lived in Grants Pass and worked as a cook in restaurants before coming to Lakeview in 1978. She was a cook on the Barry Taylor ranch and also did field work for other local ranches.

Joann was a true cat lover, although all animals were special to her. She thoroughly enjoyed gardening and canning the fruits of her labors.

She is survived by son Alexander “Bill” Merrick of Lakeview; grandson Ronald Merrick of Lakeview.

At Joann’s request no services will be held. Desert Rose Funeral Chapel is in charge of the arrangements.
