   During her senior year of high school on December 14, 1975, JoAnn was united in marriage with Robert Moses.  One son, Robert E. “Bobby” Moses, was born to this union.  After they divorced, JoAnn and Bobby moved back to her parents’ farm and then to Bayard in 1987. JoAnn was a dedicated mother and homemaker and enjoyed embroidery, watching movies, going shopping, reading and doing jigsaw puzzles. She also enjoyed watching the Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks. She was currently a resident of Manor Care Nursing Home in West Des Moines.
