Thoughts and prayers to Joanne's family. I will always remember our growing up years in Arlington and all the laughs and
fun we had . Joanne was always the center of our get togethers and spread the joy of laughter in whatever we were doing. I will forever remember her and our years at AMHS.

I will always remember when we played a softball game at MSJ. After the game we stopped at McDonald's and Joanne got on the bus. She said "I'm here to take Susie to get a Prom Dress. I said "You can pick Susie up in Arlington and bring her back to Rutland to get her dress. Susie was going to the Prom with one of my nephews. The rule was "you ride to and from the game back to Arlington on the bus". Dick came to see me the next day and said "he didn't have a problem with what I did, but it had better stay that way for the remainder of the year. If it didn't, he would be back in to see me." My luck he didn't have to come back in to see me.

We will always remember Joanne's welcoming giggle and how she and Dick were always the best dancers at the AMHS proms.

Matt, Susie and Stacey,

Joan and I were so sorry to hear about your mom's passing. Your dad and mom were two of the most wonderful friends one could ever hope for, and we felt so blessed to be able to count them as such. The town of Arlington was a much better place because of Dick and Joanne, as they truly represented that beautiful community, and why it was such a wonderful place to live and raise a family in. Please know you are in our prayers, and we thank God for the good fortune to have known and counted them as such truly valued friends. They will be missed. Kerry & Joan Csizmesia
