spirit and in mutual love and admiration for JoAnne.
Feel Free to post your comments in the

Think of Jo often. Always her smile, laughter and sweetness.
Love Me :'
Long time no see, JoAnne. I can’t believe it’s been six years since you’ve been gone. I was eight when you passed, and I remember so little yet so much about you. I remember how you always wore cheetah print, clip ons, and how you had a box for me and Sean and you’d put change and little gifts in them. I remember how you were like another aunt to me, or even a second mom to Tom, Sean, and I. I remember you driving us “down and around” and how much I loved it because I got to eat your pretzels and sit in the front seat. I remember little things like how you took me to Walbaums with you and we tipped the cart over because I couldn’t get out, watching movies in the dogs’ shed, and how I cut my arm open because I put the knives in the dishwasher facing up (although that’s not really a little thing considering it’s a huge scar haha). I can’t help but to think all the time how my life would be different right now if you were still here. Would I be the person I am
right now? Probably not, you were a big factor in my life when you were with us and you probably would’ve had a big impact on my character. Maybe I would’ve started dancing like you or something. It’s upsetting that you’re not here to see me grow up when I really wish you could be. I also can’t help but to think what if I forget a lot about you as I grow up? But then I realize, even if I can’t remember exactly how you looked, or smelt, or your voice, those things can’t take away the memories I have of you. I really miss you and wish I was still able to go to your house and just hang around with you. Fly high JoAnne <3

Erin, I am Joanne's sister, Jean. I want you to know how much You, Tom and Sean meant to Joanne. We shared a lot of talk and she always told me about you kids. Movie watching in the dog shed, the car rides ,the day you injured your arm. The after school snacks. She loved you kids a lot and I am glad you think of her and have nice memories. I am sure she would be proud of you. You touched my heart with the beautiful letter you wrote. Good Luck in your future.
Another holiday season of missing you and having you with us. I will always remember the last Christmas we spent with you, it was so special, only 4 months before you left us so tragically in April of 2009. It seems like time does not heal the grief, and missing you goes on endlessly. We each, in our own way, try to find a way to understand why this happened and how to deal with the fact that you were taken away from us so soon, but as they say, "God has a plan for all of us". I know wherever you are, you are with us always in spirit. You would be proud to know your great-niece, Nicolette, who loved you so much, has gone on with her dancing, and I'm sure you are watching her in your own way during her dance recitals, and now competitions. Your little great-nephew, and Godson, Frankie, was so young when you left us, but he knows who you are through all the pictures we have, and I share so much about you with him. Your spirit continues to live from all the
memories we have! We continue to search for the Beauty of Hope, the Spirit of Love, the Comfort of Faith, each and every Holiday without you!
Once again,..Merry Christmas in Heaven,
Your Niece, Dawn

Joanne, Always thought of fondly
Love Me :'
and.... To Jean & Dawn who always keep the fires burning - you are truly special.

Joanne, another holiday season arrives without you. Although you are with Mom, Dad, Bobby, and Aunt Viola., we all miss you here, family, and friends. I have a poem for you.
Those we love don't go away.
They walk beside us everyday.
Unseen, unheard but always near.
Still loved, still missed and very dear.
I know you are here with me. I feel your presence.
May 2nd 2014
As I sit in Heaven and watch you everyday,
I try to let you know with signs,
I never went away,
I hear you when your laughing,
And watch you when you sleep,
I even place my arms around you,
To calm you as you sleep,
I see you wish the days away, Begging to have me home,
So, I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone,
Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see,
So, live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
Then I know with every breath you take, You'll be taking one for me.
I found this poem so comforting. I wanted to share.
April 1st 2014
Approaching five years without you.
I still cannot believe this happened to you.
You were so full of life and energy. I miss talking to you.
An Eternal Memory
Those special memories of you, Will always bring a smile.
If only I could have you back, for just a little while.
Then we could sit and talk again, just like we used to do.
You always meant so very much, and always will do too.
The fact that your no longer here, will always cause me pain.
But... your forever in my heart, until we meet again.
December 24th 2013
Approaching your fifth Christmas in Heaven. Miss you sister, Always think of you. Miss those long phone conversations. Rest in peace with Mom, Dad, Bobby and Aunt Viola. Love you ... Sister Jean

There is a destiny that makes us believe
none goes his way alone
All that we send into the lives of others
comes back into our own.
Merry 4th Christmas in Heaven Joanne. You are always on our minds and in our hearts!

4th.year in Heaven.
Your family still mourns you, each in their own way. The shock of your horrible death grows dimmer and yet grows stronger with each thought. I miss your pleasant personality. Though you had your problems; when you entered a room smiling, you bought a smile to everyone.
Many people took advantage of your good nature, but we know; the wheel turns for all and i am here to watch the outcome. Love You.
Your Sister Jeannie

We are approaching your 4th. year in heaven. We all miss you so much. I wish i could hear your voice, see your smile and talk for an hour at a time on the phone just one more time. I still can't believe this happened. My memories will always be there. Love you sis.

Christmas is the happiness that lights our hearts and eyes. Christmas is the song of bells ringing through the skies. Christmas is a time of peace and contentment deep within, a time of love and silent hope that years will never dim.
Always in our hearts Joanne, Merry Christmas in heaven. We miss you.

Happy 3rd. birthday in heaven. Family and friends continue to mourn.
Barriers are finally put up along the walk, of your death site.
Hopefully, no one else will meet your fate there. I thought of you
today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday and days
before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All
i have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake,
from which i'll never part. GOD HAS YOU IN HIS ARMS, I HAVE YOU IN MY
HEART. Your sister Jean

From Jean Cella
Happy 2nd Birthday in Heaven Joanne. You are still missed by all who
love you. No one forgets your infectious smile. I see you as though you
are standing in front of me. Jokingly, we looked into our "book of
life", but we never saw this tragedy coming.
Your Loving Sister,
December 23rd 2010
From: Jean Cella
As we approach your 2nd year in Heaven, we remember the last Christmas
you spent with us on December 25th, 2008.
I remember your words at the end of the day. You said, "This was my best
Christmas ever"....never knowing it would be your last.
Tony and I will never forget your good-hearted ways and your thirst for
living life to the fullest. Your family and friends continue to mourn.
THIS POEM IS FOR YOU:
You will be remembered when the flowers bloom in Spring.
In the Summertime remembered and the fun that Summer brings.
You will be remembered when Fall brings leaves of gold.
In the Wintertime remembered and the stories that are told.
And you will be remembered each day right from the start, for the
memories we once shared forever live within my heart.
We all miss you so much. Merry 2nd Christmas in Heaven.

So many times I have tried to add an entry so that I may express some
thoughts. Each time I've tried I read all the previous entries and a
tidal wave of grief overcomes me. This time I promised I would finish
tears and all.
My name is Janice Kodetsky. I am the very proud niece of Joanne Kodetsky.
I have had the privilege of knowing Joanne almost 46 years to the day...
I was born on April 20th. I have always felt a strong connection to her
and the date of her passing assures me yet again of such a connection.
At this sad time it is this sense of connectedness and responsibility
that I want and need to insure everyone knows how truly wonderful Joanne
was, not only to her friends but also her family.
Over the years my Aunt has shared every single milestone with me.
Starting with my birth, christening, first everything's, communion,
confirmation, graduations, (which after losing my own mother became even
more valued and appreciated). I will never forget Grandma and Joanne's
faces when I graduated from Bklyn College. There they sat baking in 90
degree plus heat supporting me and just simply giving time and
themselves (something even then Joanne understood was vitally
important). As an adult the experience of my first child, Joseph and
eventually second Brianna.....wow again Joanne helped my father who as a
single parent and in his words "a dinosaur" not only accept but actually
Joanne continued to celebrate all of my children's milestones with the
same zest and enthusiasm as if they were her own. Again all giving
selflessly like no other person I have ever met. She worked around all
of her own trials and tribulations of life including her own vigorous
scheduling. Naturally, and I say Naturally because that so signifies
Joanne, Joanne did exactly the same for not only me but ALL her nieces
and nephews including Dawn Cella who became Dawn and Frank Gallo and
their children, Nicolette and Frank Jr. , Robert and Tricia Cella, their
children Anthony, Kristen, Brandon and Samantha. John Jay and Thomas
Kodetsky. There are also others who now live out of state but for who
Joanne was also right there sharing life, they are, Ronny, Rose Kodetsky
their children Ronny Jr. and Ryan, Cookie and Patty Kodetsky their
children, Richard III,Caroline, Christopher, Michael and Sissy Kodetsky.
Joanne was there. Never, ever did she miss an opportunity to celebrate
While we were all experiencing life we knew how much Joanne loved
dancing. Some of you I know WELL---others know me from my traditional
Christmas visits. Time as we all know often keeps us from doing as much
as we want to in a given day. That was never the case for Joanne----she
ran from job to job and family function to family function. In the mist
of all this Joanne met and married Chucky. Not only was this the
happiest time of her life finding her true love, but she found someone
to share her dreams with. Again selflessly she shared him with us all,
he became UNCLE Chucky. So not only did she give of herself but she
shared her wonderful find, her treasure her husband.
Well as much as I knew Joanne I have to say that the entire family
including myself were blown away by the fact that Joanne meant so much
to SOOOOOOOOO many of you as she did to us. WOW!
There are many songs and shows which creatively express that the wealth
of a persons life can only be described by the richness of the lives you
touch. I could not be prouder knowing Joanne touched the lives of so so
so many people.
-To all of you who shared the last days with us-
-To all of you who shared the happy memories-
-To all of you who embraced Joanne and shared all of what life offers-
-To all of you who called her "FRIEND"
-To all of you we now call "family"
On behalf of her brothers, Johnny and Richie, her sister Jean and her
Brother In Law Tony and the entire extended family.
MAY WE ALL FIND A WAY TO KEEP JOANNE ALIVE IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER
MY DEEPEST THANKS TO ALL

from: Jo Ann's niece
I saw an Angel walking, she was dressed all in white
She turned and smiled at me,then vanished out of sight.
Sometimes I sit and wonder why you left and where you've gone. For it
seems so hard at times to find the strength to carry on.
They say a light shines brightly on the other side, it's true. I know
that light was shining and waiting there for you.
Our hearts are grieving heavy and how we miss you so, we still can't
understand why God has taken you Jo.
An Angel walks among us but she can't be everywhere.
So in her loving memory we keep an empty chair.
And for all the times we laughed, joked around and danced. If I had only
one wish, it would be for one more chance.
One more chance to tell you how much you meant before, before this
suddenly happened and you went to Heaven's door.
One more chance to tell you how you meant so very much, the happiness
and the love you shared with all of us.
I saw an Angel walking, she was dressed all in white.
She turned and smiled at me and whispered,..........
Your loving niece.

We had the pleasure of visiting Joanne's line dance class last May 2008
in Sheepshead Bay for a Friday night social. We had a lovely evening and
were openly welcomed by Joanne and all members of the club. We are very
saddened to learn of her very untimely death.
It was obvious from the one and only meeting we had, that Joanne was a
lovely and very warm person.
We were visiting New York from Ireland for a long weekend.
We extend our sympathy to all her family, friends and fellow line

Dear family members,
We are so sorry to hear of Joanne's passing. Joanne participated in our
all night party for graduating seniors the past couple of years and the
children so enjoyed her and her dancing. She made it so much fun and she
was so energizing. Joanne was truly a lovely person. Our deepest
sympathies and prayers are with you.

Anna Warren - Brooklyn, NY
18 years ago I met you, it seems like 18 minutes ago, the time has flown
by so fast.
After leaving that first night from the Tamaqua, I knew my life was
about to change,
For that I thank you.
Through the years, you became more than a teacher, you became my friend
, and for
That I’m honored.
You have always made my children feel welcomed, they loved being around
you, and for that, I admire you.
Your love for animals showed me that you had a good heart, and I will
always value that.
You showed me your strength when times were hard, and for that I respect
Your life was taken away so tragically and suddenly.
I miss you now and I will miss you always.
These words are from a song “One More Day” by Diamond Rio which sums up
Heart is feeling:
One more day
One more time
One more sunset, maybe I’d be satisfied
But then again I know what it would do
Leave me wishing still for one more day with you…

Joanne, you were truly a beautiful person who didn't let anything
interfere with your love for dancing and for making others happy. I wish
I had spent more time with you.

I am a line dancer living on Long Island and I would like to say how
very sorry I am for your loss. I am aware that Joanne was a much loved
and admired person for her many fine qualities. She apparently made so
many people happy by giving them the opportunity to dance and being a
friend. I am truly sorry that I will never have the
privilege of meeting her. Please accept my deepest sympathy.

I was in North Carolina visiting my daughter Janet when we heard this
terrible tragedy. Joanne always told me "I have to plan my parties
around you". She was the kindest, and most sincere woman I knew. We were
both very devastated and feel the loss and the pain. She will be missed
dearly. Our sympathy goes out to her entire family. I loved Joanne as a
person and as a teacher. She was GREAT and LOVED dancing. She loved LIFE
and loved everyone. I hope she is watching over all of us at the Bay
Ridge Senior Center. It will not be the same without her. God bless you

George J Carlisle - Brooklyn, NY
Donna and I met Joanne in the early 1990s. We were looking for something
to do and heard the Tamaqua bar in Brooklyn had line dancing. We went
for a couple of weeks and just sat and watched. Than one day Joanne came
over to our table took us by the hand and dragged us onto the dance
floor for a barn dance.
WE became best of friends with Joanne and Bill doing private parties,
going to each others homes, pumpkin picking ect. Then, when they
separated, Joanne was devastated. A small group of us stood by and
helped get her back on her feet. She went from always being in the
background, to becoming a talented dance instructor "Front and center".
She had a personality and smile that drew everyone to her.
Then one day about eight years ago I heard on the radio they were
starting a country date line. I gave her the number and she called and
met Chuck. It was the best thing that could have happened to her.
Chuck's easy going personality and acceptance of all the strays she took
care of made Chuck her ideal soul-mate. Like Joanne, Chuck became part
of our family, we went out all the time. Joanne loved the Renaissance
Fair, Casinos, Small Towns, Chilies Restaurant and Sunday movies! Every
Thursday evening we all went to a diner - Joanne, Barbara, Miriam, Donna
and I. It was on the way to the diner, Thursday April 16th that we got
the tragic news. In an instant everyone's life was changed forever!
The world is a sadder dimmer place without Joanne. The one bright spot
is that over the years, Jeanie, Joanne's sister, and their extended
families (brothers, nephews, nieces their spouses and children) have
adopted us and made us part of their family.
closing I'd like to say I know there's a "Special Place" for her in
HEAVEN with her Mom and Dad and probably the hundreds of strays she took
care of throughout the years.- Sadly she leaves behind those two strays
whose hands she took so many years ago at "The Tamaqua"!
"I" , "We" Love you beyond words!
Your Friends Now and Forever-George, Donna
and our daughter Dawn E

I've been attempting to post a note but it is tough to piece together my
thoughts. I am still hoping that I will wake up and find that it was
just a bad dream. With everything going on in my life, I always run to
Brooklyn to find solace and Joanne with her smiling face was always
there to greet her guests.
Joanne, you've touched so many lives and given comfort and encouragement
to so many people. You will never be forgotten- God keep you in his

Line dancing at Bergen Beach and Marine Park
I recently started attending Joanne's line dancing class. Her enthusiasm
and provided real enjoyment of the dances she taught. Joanne was always
down to make sure everyone was following the steps. It's been a
fantastic few months knowing
Joanne and I learned a lot from her. I'm sorry I knew her for only a
short while and I will miss her
greatly. May her family and friends find solace in the fact that she
brought happiness to many
people through her dancing.

The sadness and the anguish that we are all feeling is overwhelming.
Anyone who was privileged enough to have known Joanne has been blessed.
Twenty-one years ago she introduced me to the joy of dancing, and I and
so many hundreds of others are grateful to Joanne for all that she did.
I pray that Chuck and all of Joanne's loved ones find solace in knowing
how much she meant to so many people.
I will miss you, dear friend. "I always thought that I'd see you, one

STRENGTH AND KINDNESS. SHE HAS TOUCHED EVERYONE'S HEART AND IS LIVING IN
THE HEARTS OF THOSE SHE TOUCHED. WHEN OUR TEARS FLOW HER SPIRIT WILL
SURROUND US, AND SHE WILL COMFORT US. EVERY TIME WE DANCE SHE WILL BE
DANCING WITH US. MAY GOD BLESS, AND MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH HER

Joanne was such an inspiration to my husband Michael and myself. Anna
Warren introduced us to Joanne. She always greeted us with a wonderful
and genuine smile. She was so enthusiastic in her teaching. She made us
all very happy. We were able to forget our worries and fatigue for few
hours we all spent with her. Her phrases always come to my mind "Hit it
George" "Kind of sort of" "and the dance begins again" I am so sad for
the loss. We lost a very special person. Joanne you will always be in my
heart. God bless you. My condolence to the family members. Your love
will always reflect in our hearts

I just wanted to write and say how sorry I was to hear the news about
Joanne. I actually called her on Saturday to say hello because I hadn't
spoken to her since November and when her husband told me what happened,
it took my breath away. Then I called Larry and he told me about the
passing of Carmen, too.
You guys were a big part of my life for many years and Joanne was
certainly the one who brought me to you when she invited me to a free
class one Monday night in 1998. It all seemed so long ago and yet she
and you guys have always stayed in my heart and in mind. I don't really
know what to say except that my heart is heavy with sadness and regret
that I couldn't be up there for the service but thank you for what you
did on her page. In that photo, she looked like she always did, happy
and full of love.
Thank you again for doing such a beautiful job with that page. My
thoughts and prayers will be with her family, loved ones, and with you

Even though, it still doesn't seem real to me now, my heart is totally
broken over this. Joanne was a long-time and dear friend and I will miss
her more than I can say. I only wish that I could've made it up there to
pay my respects but my thoughts and prayers will be with her family,
loved ones, and fellow Western Steppers. Godspeed to heaven.

This is truly a great loss. I am happy to have known Joanne. She was a

others introducing them to the world of country dancing. Definitely a
precious life lost too soon. My heart is very heavy. I will always
