Joanna Elizabeth (Porch) Paul
February 19, 1931 ~ November 9, 2022 (age 91) 91 Years Old
The surviving Paul kids want to announce the passing of our mother, Joanna Elizabeth Porch Paul, on the 9th of November 2022. She lived a good long life of 91 years being a mother, grandmother, aunt, sister and a friend to many. Her Burial will take place on Friday, November 18th at Highland Cemetery, Great Falls, MT.
Joanna joins the legions that went before: her parents Charlie and Anna Porch; her brother Steven Benjamin; her 4 half-sisters Margie, Shirley, Peggy and Terry; her husband Billy; and sons Timothy and Scott (just this last March).
A graduate of Great Falls High in 1949, she was involved in PTA and local elections and helped raise several grandchildren. We wish to thank her for mothering, discipling and loving us into adulthood.
We remember her fondly in the kitchen creating so many delicious dishes. Fortunately, we were able to assist and learn how to recreate them. She earned her green thumb from her father which of course was also passed down to us. Her gardens were beautiful.
She was a trooper having raised 8 children and being a mother figure to many of our childhood friends. They loved to stay for dinner as well. She loved us fiercely. Goodbye Mama Jo...we wish you well on your next journey.
