JoAnn was born October 21, 1935 in Des Moines, Iowa. She married the love of her life, Dean Meyer, on November 21, 1957.

JoAnn held her role as wife, mother and homemaker sacred. She was very proud of her family and their accomplishments. After raising four children, JoAnn worked to build a second business with Dean, followed by 20 years of employment with the Des Moines Public Schools. JoAnn was an exceptionally hard worker who found great joy in helping others. She was always the first to volunteer or donate. All who knew her found her to be incredibly kindhearted.

She was an avid animal lover and a great cook. She spent 60 years perfecting her secret recipes for her family. She was also a champion bowler, winning the State Championship along with her team in 1979. She brought passion to everything she did. Her greatest passion was for her husband and their unwavering devotion to each other.

She is survived by her loving husband, Dean; children, Rick Meyer of Des Moines, Shelly (Nick) Bosovich of West Des Moines, and Scott (Nicole) Meyer of Johnston; nine grandchildren; ten great-grandchildren; and a growing number of great-great grandchildren.

JoAnn is preceded in death by her parents, siblings and daughter, Kelly.
