Joanne Wadle

Joanne (Caffrey) Wadle passed away Wednesday, September 12 after a lengthy illness.  She was born in Marion county, Iowa the youngest of seven girls and second youngest of a family of ten born to Charles and Elizabeth Caffrey.  She and her husband celebrated 65 years of marriage on Valentine’s Day this year.

 

Joanne was proud of her Irish heritage, was a devoted wife and mother, and was the silent partner of all of her husband’s endeavors, none of which could have been accomplished without her.  She loved and lived her Catholic faith, never questioning, never doubting.

 

Her working career began at Katz Drug Store on Fleur Drive with a short time with Polk county and as the children grew older she spent numerous years with Independent Abstract, finally retiring from Iowa Title at age 75.

 

She was preceded in death by her parents; sisters: Nellie, Genevieve, Kathleen, Roseleen, and Betty; brothers: James, Charles, and Robert.

 

Joanne is survived by her husband, William; daughters, Deborah and Lori (Mark) Burris; grandchildren: Jeffrey (Leslie) Furlong, Jodi Furlong, Scott (Tamara) Burris, Adam (Nicole) Burris, and Matthew (Rebecca) Burris; great-grandchildren: Dylan Dobbins, Serena Furlong, Gavin Burris, Trinity Burris, Savannah Burris, Jacob Burris, and Hudson Burris; and her sister, Dorothy Patch.

 

She will be as much missed as much as she was loved.

 

Visitation will be 4-6 p.m., Sunday, at Brooks South Town Chapel at Sunset Memorial Gardens.  Funeral mass will be at 10 a.m., Monday, at St. Anthony Catholic Church.
