Joanne Margaret O’Brien was born April 25, 1946 in Racine, WI, daughter to the late James & Jeanette (Peters) Haas. She attended school and graduated high school in the Racine area, and later married Roger R. O’Brien on April 24, 1965 also in Racine. She worked, for a time, at a book factory in Racine, but later they relocated to the Marion area and Joanne worked for the clock factory in Clintonville. She eventually stayed home full time to care for their son, Brian. Joanne loved pan-fishing, gardening, and canning vegetables from her garden.
