From Helena Independent Record Feb 26, 2009

JoAnn Turner Erb, 71, of Helena passed away on Monday, Feb. 23, 2009.

JoAnn was born in Helena on Sept. 3, 1937, to James and Agnes Turner. She grew up in the house her dad built for the family. She was raised to be strong and independent like her parents. In 1957 she met Jack Erb and there was no looking back. They married on July 29, 1958, in Superior. They spent the last 50 years together raising a family.

JoAnn loved to read, typically a book every two days. She loved to be surrounded by her family and was very protective of all of them. A true matriarch. JoAnn was proud of where she was from and enjoyed all the history of Helena and the surrounding areas. When you'd take her for a drive you would always hear stories of how Helena was or her memories of different places. Summers were spent attending garage sales, looking for more books to read.

JoAnn is preceded in death by her parents, James and Agnes Turner.

She is survived by her husband, Jack; her two sons, Mike and Jim (Angie); her daughter, Sheila (Leissa); and seven grandchildren, all of Helena.

A Vigil will be held at 6 p.m. today, Feb. 26, at Retz Funeral Home. Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Mary Catholic Community in Helena at 10 a.m. Friday, Feb. 27. Burial will be at Montana State Veterans Cemetery, Fort Harrison, immediately following.
