JoAnn Cahill February 25, 1943 - October 25, 2021 To our sister, aunt, cousin, sister-in-law, and friend, we bid farewell for now. JoAnn's faith in our Lord Jesus gives her new life with fresh breathing, clear vision, and a new heart. Her faith and hope was taught in the United Methodist Church. She was born in Saltville, Va. and was the fourth child of Albert J. Cahill and Katherine Brickey Cahill. She had a zest for life on this Earth but her joy was her family. JoAnn was a music lover and an amazing vocalist, pianist, and organist. She formerly worked for the Bristol Herald Courier, Virginia Intermont College, and Highlands Union Bank.
She was preceded in death by her parents; two sisters and brothers-in-law, Betty Cahill McNew and husband, Charles and Mary Cahill Arnold and husband, Ernest; and brother, Rev. William E. Cahill; nephew, Ernie Arnold; and two sisters-in-law, Loretta R. Cahill and Betty Cahill.
She is survived by her brother, Jim Cahill of Lexington, Ky.; sister, Dee Dee Boyd and husband, Bo, of Abingdon, Va.; and sister-in-law, Sharon E. Cahill of Abingdon, Va. Also surviving are her nieces and nephews, Darla (Bob), Charles, Jr. (Trudy), Richie (Kim), Kenny, Lori, Scott (Sherry), Gene (Maria), Charles, and Bo, Jr. (Tina); many cousins; and great nieces and nephews.
