Joanne Engels
Feb. 28, 1949 - Oct. 8, 2008
Joanne Engels entered this world on February 28, 1949 in Southgate, California to James and Mary Engels. Although a California girl for most of her life, she quickly adapted to life in Redmond, Oregon in 2001. If was difficult leaving her roots and her childhood friends Bonnie & Janet, but Joanne needed to be closer to her family. Everybody in Joanne’s life has been touched by her warm smile, kind words and her love for cooking and baking; Christmas candies and pumpkin bread were her specialties! Joanne loved to sing - as she went about her day, you could always hear her singing or humming a tune and especially if her sisters and nieces were around, she’d always find a way to get everybody singing. Finding Joanne watching her soap operas or an old movie was common, but even more common was seeing her give herself unconditionally to her family, friends and even people she hardly knew. Joanne has always had a deep love for God and for the Catholic Church - she spent many hours a day in meditation to our Blessed Mother and our Lord Jesus Christ. Her deeply rooted religious beliefs, spiced with her wonderful sense of humor, provided the foundation that we will always remember her for: Joanne Engels was a beautiful person both inside and out.
Joanne is survived by her parents, James and Mary Engels; her brother, Jim, his wife Jennifer and their son Christopher; her sister, Theresa, husband Dean and children, Anthony, Matthew and Flippy; and her sister, Judy and daughters, Amy, Christa and Katelin.
Joanne earned her angel wings and flew home to our Lord on October 8, 2008 and will be deeply missed by her friends, family and the entire community.
Funeral Services were held October 15 at St. Thomas Catholic Church in Redmond, Oregon.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to the Joanne Engels Leukemia Fund at Columbia River Bank in Redmond, Oregon.
