Joe Ann and Jerry loved their family, Tina and Christopher, their spouses Ben Cone and Elizabeth Meurer, and their sweet grandson, Brody. They loved and found joy in caring for their pets Timber and Tina. They lived a full life, and were genuinely happy people, as was demonstrated by Joe Ann's robust laugh. Joe Ann touched many lives through her work at the Sauk Co. Health Care Center. In her free time she loved busying her hands with needlework. It was a rare occasion to find her without a piece in her hands, her fingers crafting perfect stitches. Jerry enjoyed his work at HoChunk, speaking of it often. At home he loved connecting on-line with people across the globe, and often spoke of his conversations with folks from across the globe. They were both preceded in death by their parents.
