JoAnn Louise Burke

JoAnn Louise Burke of Quincy, passed away on Saturday, June 15, 2024. She was 77.

JoAnn loved her family deeply. She enjoyed crocheting, playing poker/keno and bingo. JoAnn cherished her clickah and TV shows and made friends with everyone she met, often greeting them with a hug and a kiss.

 More importantly, JoAnn dedicated her life to helping countless individuals achieve sobriety after getting sober herself on August 22, 1983, nearly 41 years ago. Her family of choice included the hundreds, possibly thousands, of people she encountered through AA over these years. Her faith in God was also very important to her.

 JoAnn now rests peacefully with Bob, her dogs, and countless family and friends. Heaven has gained another angel.

 Fly with the angels, Mom.

We love you.

 Beloved wife of the late Robert “Bob” Burke. Devoted mother to John Steen of San Francisco, CA, Lisa Steen and her wife Maureen Buotte of Reading, MA, Timothy “TJ” Steen and his wife Debbie of Woonsocket, RI.
