JoAnn Bernice (Twite) Erickson, 74, born in Dawson, Minnesota, passed away on January 20, 2022, in Gilbert, Arizona surrounded by those she loved. She is survived by her husband, Richard, and five children, Brita DeWitt, Marney Fiandach, Leanna Anderson, Jake Erickson, and Elizabeth Allen, 16 grandchildren, and three brothers, Ray, Don and Steve Twite.
JoAnn lived a life of faith and service and was loved by all who knew her. She was entirely devoted to her husband, family and friends. Making others feel loved and supported was of utmost importance in her relationships. Her grandchildren were her world, family dinners the highlight of her week and she was always planning the next family vacation, preferably at the beach. She was an active church member serving in numerous leadership and teaching capacities. Our Lord and Savior was her inspiration and she strived to live in accordance with His teachings, His commandments and His will. She enjoyed music, interior decorating, swimming with her grandkids and all things Christmas. Her laugh was contagious, and her smile could make the heaviest of hearts feel light. Her humor and quick wit were thoroughly enjoyed by all. JoAnn was deeply loved and one of a kind. The void that remains from her earthly departure is one that will never be filled until we meet again.
The funeral service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, January 28, 2022 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints chapel located at 1852 North Stapley Drive, Mesa, Arizona. A visitation will be held one hour prior to the funeral service. A Zoom meeting link will be provided here, and through JoAnn’s and her daughters’ (Leanna Anderson and Elizabeth Allen) Facebook pages, prior to the service.
