Joanne Lee was born to Joseph W Maupin and Laura B Edmunds in Rushville, Nebraska on February 4, 1938. Her family later moved to Dickinson, ND, where Joanne met and married her high school sweetheart, Jack Schwartz.

She was an active and beloved member of her community, working in various jobs and volunteering. Joanne enjoyed working with her hands, crocheting, cross-stitching and quilting until the very end. Of all her great accomplishments, Joanne found the most joy in the time she spent with her grandchildren.

She lived 84 full years which passed too quickly. She passed away peacefully, without fear or regret, leaving her loved ones with many memories that will make them smile forever.

Joanne is survived by her sons Michael (Connie), Keith (Sheryl), Pat (Julie), Mark (Cinzia); eleven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
