July 19, 1933 – July 31, 2022

JoeAnn Sullivan, 89 of Denair, passed away on Sunday, July 31.  She was born in Edna, Oklahoma to Lester and Ruby Ratliff.  She was raised in the Delhi area and lived in Denair for 60 years.  She was a stay-at-home wife and mother.  The saying “if you want it done right, you do it yourself” was her way of life.

JoeAnn is survived by her husband of 72 years, Erskel (Jack) Sullivan; children Ronda McWhorter of Incline Village, Danny Sullivan of Delhi, Jeannie Herrington of Denair, and Richard Sullivan of Sanger; grandchildren Stephani, Matthew, Tonja, Kim, Melissa, Joshua, Megan and Holly, as well as 11 great-grandchildren.

“A limb has fallen from the family tree

I keep hearing a voice that says ‘grieve not for me’

Remember the best times, the laughter, the song

The good life I lived while I was strong.”
