Joanne was a graduate of De Sales High School in Geneva and worked at various employers through her career including NYSEG and several health care organizations such as Lourdes, United Health Service (UHS), Thompson Health, Community Health of Buffalo and Catholic Health. Joanne's love of family & friends meant everything to her and her three sons were her world. Joanne was always there for her boys anytime and anywhere she was needed. She was very proud of her boys, their accomplishments and the amazing young women they share their lives with. To know Joanne meant you knew you were loved. Honest, compassionate, loving, caring and devoted are a few of the qualities Joanne embodied. She was always trying to make us laugh with her special brand of humor and loved making others happy. She was also an amazing cook & baker and shared her confections with everyone….Easter Bread, Pizzelles, Biscotti, holiday cookies, etc. all made with love. Lastly, she loved her four grand dogs and her loving rescue beagle, Betty. Joanne would always say I didn't rescue Betty…she rescued me. Joanne is survived by her husband of 32 years, Steven Sr., her three sons Steven II (Rachel Spring) of Raleigh, NC, Andrew (Brook) of Midlothian, VA, and Jeffrey (Samantha Steinlicht) of Geneva, NY; mother Eleanor (Acquilano) Yunits, of Geneva, NY, brother, John W.
