July 5, 1941- April 12, 2021 It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of JoAnn Radich, our loving mother, cherished grandmother, and sister. She left us on the evening of April 12, 2021. JoAnn was born on July 5, 1941, in Skagit County, the daughter of the late John and Jean Radich. She attended and was a graduate of Burlington-Edison High School, a member of the Burlington Lutheran Church, and a teacher's Aide at the old Roosevelt Elementary school in Burlington. She fought bravely against Multiple Sclerosis most of her life, while raising two daughters. Our mother had a laugh that was contagious, once she got started it was hard for her to stop. When it came to her 5 grandchildren, she had a soft spot for each of them. They were the only ones who were entitled to know where she kept her chocolate. In her later years, she enjoyed attending church on Sunday, and playing bingo several times per week. We joked with her often that if she kept winning all the bingo prizes, the other residents were going to vote her out of the bingo club. Most of all, we will miss that mischievous smile and twinkle in her eye. Our mother is survived by two daughters and sons-in-law, Kelly Youngquist (Jeff) of Bow, WA, Kandy Hauer (Jerry) of Mechanicsville, MD, five grandchildren, J.J., Trisha, Afton, Sydney, and Levi, two brothers, John Radich, Jim Radich (DeeAnn), several cousins and friends.
