She looked forward to holidays when the family gathered and sang around the piano. She loved to watch the grandchildren laugh and play together. She especially enjoyed listening to her children and grandchildren sing the songs of Zion. Joann had great appreciation to all the churches and pastors who invited the Harless Family to take part in their services. In addition to her parents she is preceded in death by her loving husband of 53 years Oral M. Harless and a sister Betty Blankenship.
