JoAnn Cravens

March 3, 1937 — March 11, 2021

JoAnn achieved her life-long dream and was welcomed into heaven, March 11, 2021. She was greeted by her husband, William C. Cravens (Sonny), who passed in 2015, alongside all those she missed so dearly while on earth. She touched us through her kind, loving, selfless, and peaceful spirit and family prayer. She was known for her delicious lemonade and fried okra at family reunions as well as many years of coconut cake donations to the annual cancer auction. We would always make sure to have an extra bottle of ranch dressing at the house if she was coming over. Watching her enjoy gospel music would put a smile on anyone's face. A great void has now been created for those left behind: Daughters: Kathy Estes (Clyde) of Dickson, TN. Angela Wilson (Dennis) of Lyles, TN Son: Thomas Cravens of Vanleer, TN .
