JoAnn Christensen Henstra, Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Loving Friend returned peacefully to her Heavenly Father on April 29, 2008. JoAnn was born on February 28, 1948 to Knola Weight and Heber Fielding Christensen in Salt Lake City. She was the youngest of 3 children. She met Robert J. Henstra Jr. while working in a dentist office. He needed his wisdom teeth out and she was just the girl to assist. They were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple 27 days later, on January 15, 1969. She continued to work for Dr. Goff until after her second child was born then stayed home to raise her 7 children. She was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in 2003 and fought a courageous battle until the end. JoAnn was famous for her super positive attitude and her unconditional love for everyone. Mom was known to count her blessings even until the day that she died.

JoAnn was preceded in death by a son Peter, father Heber, and brother Daryl. Our family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the many family, friends, and neighbors who were willing to stand by and support mom. Also a special thanks to Natalie, her favorite nurse and the angels who cared for her at Dr. Tudor's and Dr. Rose's offices.
