Obituary of Joanne Lou Bretz

Please share a memory of Joanne to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
My mother was one of the strongest and kindest humans to grace this planet. Without her, I wouldn't be here today, I wouldn't be the person I am, and I wouldn't have the life I have. She is everything to me, and more, and there's no way I can ever fully express the importance she's held in my life. My mother was the best mother a person could ask for. She was always there for family in good times and bad with help and great advice. She loved to travel and made her way around the world more than once. She loved her many canine rescued companions throughout the years. She loved her desserts (more than the meals I think) and she loved her many friends in Michigan and Colorado. Thank you, mom, for everything! Mom did not what any fuss after her passing. No ceremony, no flowers, plaques, etc. She wished to be cremated and her ashes scattered in a nice remote place in Washington. My brother and I honored that request, and found a nice spot high above the Columbia river next to a small waterfall and stream. I’m sure the area will be visited by many dragonflies (one of her favorites) every spring and summer. We all miss you mom! Rest in peace Love Dave and Sharon
