She was also predeceased by her sister, Sallie Dautrich.  

Joanna was the daughter of the late John D and Alice ( Derr ) Renno. She 
was a member of One United Church of Christ, Kenhorst, Pa. Joanna was a pairer at the former Berkshire Knitting Mills for 23 years and worked as a quality control inspector at the former Sharpoint, currently ALCON for 20 years.

She is also survived by her two grandsons, David Gregory, son of Gregory Charles and Erin Michael, wife Karen, son of Kimberly Brinker, and two beautiful great grandchildren, Chase and Ella.  


Joan was happiest when surrounded by her family. She loved hosting 4th of July picnics in the backyard every year, always making her homemade wedding soup. She enjoyed traveling to Rehoboth Beach with her family. Joan was an avid Bingo player, whether at a local carnival or bus trips to New York, she enjoyed Bingo.
