Joanne Selene Napp, 82, died peacefully in Redwood City Jan. 21, 2013. Joanne was born and raised in San Francisco, graduating from Lowell High School in 1948. She moved to Daly City at age 25, residing there for 38 years. She worked in marketing research, retiring in 1993.
Joanne's proudest accomplishment was raising her three children. She truly loved her family. Joanne is survived by her sons Doug and Craig (Bridget Cunningham), daughter Cheri Cole (Ralph) and grandchildren Kelly and Brian Cole.
Joanne spent the last 19 years living at Woodside Terrace in Redwood City. She lived simply, spending time talking with friends and family, watching her favorite television shows and old movies, keeping up with celebrity gossip and the latest fashion trends. "Persevering through difficult times with tremendous resiliency, Joanne always maintained a positive outlook on life. She will always be remembered as someone who cared for others even before caring for herself. We will never forget her sense of humor and her contagious smile!”
