Joanne C. Mohr, 83, died Monday, December 18, 2017 at her home in Elgin. She was born March 22, 1934 in Chicago, the daughter of Frank and Helen (nee Braun) Zwatschka.
Joanne loved her home and garden in Elgin that she shared with her husband Tom.
She was a skilled needleworker who made dozens of gifts for her friends and family. For decades she looked forward to Sunday afternoon bingo with her friends at the Elgin American Legion.
After her sons Jim and John began high school she went to work at Joseph Spiess department store where she was a friendly and dedicated employee for almost 20 years until Spiess closed.
She was a passionate writer of notes and letters. She brought light into the world. She was a loyal friend, a beloved mother and wife. She will be missed for her humor, wisdom, generosity and grace.
Most of all, she loved her husband, her sons, and her home where she passed away peacefully in her sleep. Members of Joanne’s family include her husband of 57 years, Thomas Mohr; her sons, James Mohr of North Aurora, Illinois and John Mohr of Evanston, Illinois and his wife, Rebecca Dudley, and her nieces, Alex, Dawn, and April. She is preceded in death by her parents, and her sister Marjorie.
