Joann Morrione (nee Kerner), lived in Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania for the past 17 years. Joann passed away on Thursday, March 15, 2018. Joann was 52 years of age. Born July 28, 1965 in Norristown, Pennsylvania; Joann was the daughter of Edward, Sr. & Catherine (nee Nicholson) Kerner and the beloved wife of Joseph M.

Joann had so many treasures in life and she was so much too so many of us. She radiated love for her husband, Joe Morrione and her children, Joseph, Nicholas, Hailee and daughter-in-law Kelly. Joann lived life full of love, admiration and selflessness for her husband and children.

She enjoyed spending quality time with her family fishing, kayaking, swimming, gardening, playing the piano and home projects remodeling her home with her husband. Joann was a talented carpenter. Joann loved her dog, Rusti and treated him with such tenderness.

Joann had a large family- parents, siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews- all of whom she adored and loved unconditionally. She also had many lifelong friends and neighbors whom she cherished and loved like her own family.

For those of you who knew Joann, you knew of her fearlessness, strength and uplifting sense of humor. Joann was a rock to so many and she loved to help others. She was both compassionate and wise. Friends and family not only looked to her for advice, but greatly admired her fearless spirit.

Joann found true happiness in bringing her family together. In times of grief or pain she was known to comfort those she loved by making them smile with her sense of humor. She was an unstoppable spirit who was full of life, love, compassion and strength. We were all blessed to have had such a wonderful soul to love us as Joann did.

In addition to both of her parents and her husband Joseph, Sr., Joann is survived by her twin sons; Joseph, Jr. (Kelly), Nicholas and her daughter, Hailee Morrione, her sister Marlene Hoffman (Gilbert-deceased), brother Edward Kerner, Jr. (Kathy) and sister Diane Kerner.
