Joanna (Leona) Yusishen (nee Molinski) after a brief and courageous battle with illness, died on November 30, 2011 in Ocala, Florida. Born November 18, 1938 in Lowland, Manitoba to Joseph and Margaret Molinski, she is survived by her children Darrell and Susan, Cheryl and Jamie, Lori and Bram; grandchildren Cayla, Dezaraye, Robert and Michael; siblings Helen Beley, Charlie Molinski and Ted & Vi Molinski; in-laws Sheryl, Helen, Eugene, Marge, Lillian, Betty and Adolph, and many nieces and nephews.

She will also be missed by her lifelong friends Siegfried and Inge, and Hal and Lorraine.
Joanna and Edward married in 1960 and settled in Glenmoor where they farmed all of their lives. In the late 1970’s, they began spending winters in Florida, where they built a house in 1987 and became part of a community there. After Edward died in 1997, Joanna continued to winter in Florida, eventually settling in Ocala. Joanna enjoyed reading, going to church and spending time with her friends, family and especially her grandchildren.
