Joanne L. Moseley, 74, of Rock Island, Illinois left this earth on Monday, May 7, 2018 to be with her husband in heaven. She was feisty in every way, lovable, ornery, smart-aleck, sweet and kind. Joanne left her mark on many; whether it be her outrages Facebook posts (that everyone had to decipher), her pranks and jokes she loved to pull on anyone, her sweet gestures just to put a smile on someone’s face and make them happy, to that feisty, spunky attitude that you couldn’t miss. She was always looking to give to others and would give the shirt off her back to help those who needed it more than her. Before she passed, she decided she wanted to keep this tradition alive…she asked that instead of sending flowers to her funeral she would like her memorials to be a donation to HopeKids of North Texas in honor of her 9 year old buddy, Connor.
