On May 21, 2024, Joann Martha Bryant of Abingdon, Virginia, passed away, leaving behind a legacy that will be cherished by all who had the privilege of knowing her. Joann was born on April 4, 1941, in Mountain City, Tennessee, to loving parents who instilled in her values of hard work, kindness, and integrity.

After graduating from Blountville High School in 1959, Joann embarked on a successful career journey.

In their time of mourning, may they find solace in the fond memories they shared with Joann.

Her life was a tapestry woven with love, laughter, and unwavering strength.
