Pavnick (Sturm), Joanelle Catherine 86, passed away May 20th from covid-19. Joan was raised in Fulda, MN. She leaves behind a legacy of smiles, laughter, hugs and kisses. Worked as a manager for "Ma Bell" for many years, after retirement she became an avid gardener, took up ceramics, and enjoyed lunch out with the girls! She had many friends at the Waterford, both residents and staff, for which we are grateful, she will be dearly missed by all who knew her. She was preceded in death by husband Sam, brothers Bill, Don, and Doug. She is survived by siblings, Margaret (Midge), Daniel and Terry, along with a clan of nieces, nephews, family and friends. She brought so much joy into our lives, the world lost a Good One. She will be interred at Fort Snelling.
