    I was so sad to learn of Joanne’s passing. She was such a life force that you couldn’t help but be caught up in her energy field if you were near her. She was a hilarious storyteller with a great laugh, and she and Don were such an adventurous couple who enjoyed doing anything outdoors. I’m so glad to have warm and loving memories of her.

  • Nancy & Duane Folks

    So sorry to hear of my dear cousin, Joanne’s passing and even sorrier we did not keep in touch these past years since our days of working together at On-Line Systems.

  • Sylvia Tan

    Heaven needed their new angel, you, Red. I will always remember you from back when Sally, Dan and I were still back in Pittsburgh. Rest now and be at peace. We love you always. My sincerest condolences to Don, Sally, Dan, Lauren & Elizabeth. Hugs from Australia

  • Jane E. Stadnik

    Aww Red, I’m gonna miss you. Our Chinese lunches, our Gateway Clipper rides and our James Taylor skits we would make up. So many memories. I loved our friendship that was so easy going. Our famous motto “through thick and through thin”. You were a joy to be around and you lit up a room when you walked in. A beautiful soul. May you Rest In Peace and we will see each other again some day. I love you my dear friend. Janiegirl

    Don and family. David and I are shocked and saddened so much for your loss. Red was a special lady with whom we had many good times. We were lucky to have such a delightful soul in our life. Our deepest sympathy.

  • Maggie Behr

    Auntie Red, I’ll never forget learning “10 cents a dance” with you and wearing heels to dance it out!! You made the best pickled eggs, meatballs and sauce and mashed potatoes!!! I’ll always remember you babysitting us when we were little and also spending a sick day at your house watching the Jackson 5 docuseries. Loved having you call me honey girl. We were robbed much too soon of your beautiful spirit.

  • Sandy Russell

    Sending my sincere condolences to Don&Entire Family.Thoughts&Prayers are with you🙏

  • Betty Behr

    What a sweetheart. Red always made me feel at ease when I could sit and talk to her at a family event. She is the only person I know that called me Betts. Love you Red God Bless. Betty Behr

  • The Caudill Family

    We love you so much Auntie Red. We will miss your sweet and caring personality and your quick and delightful humor. I will carry with me all of your beautiful lessons and sweet memories. We love you Auntie Red and will miss you terribly.

  • Mary Anne Broskey

    I’ll always remember Red’s warm nature and smiling face. I’m so glad that I knew her for all these years.

  • Phillip Arthur Behr IV

    Aunt Red, there are too many good memories to revisit. One is being young and coming to your house and getting a pop out of the pop cupboard which seemed to have an endless amount of different kinds of pop. Another her willingness to be our official photographer for all events sometimes at the dislike of the kids. Love you, from your nephew. Mangiatore! Phil Behr
