Joanne had a steadfast believe in God and no matter what befell her, she had faith that it was part of Gods’ plan for her.

She loved her husband of 38 years, James A. Elledge, very much and in prior years spent April through September camping and fishing on their pontoon boat. Her son, Roger and his wife took her many times to Chesapeake, Virginia to fish and opened their house to her many times over 3 years when she needed treatment at Duke. Her youngest son, Russell from Boomer, NC has always been there to support his mother and James in whatever they needed and set wither on Sunday mornings, while she was home in hospice, so James could go to church.

Surviving are her loving husband, James A. Elledge of North Wilkesboro; sister, Nancy Chinen of Honolulu, Hawaii; 3 sons; Roger Sizemore and spouse Linda of Durham, NC, Russell Sizemore and his fiancée Shannon Morrison of Boomer, NC, Bob Sizemore and spouse Debi of Greenville, SC; stepson, Charlie Elledge; grandchildren, Willie Sizemore, Logan Miller, Kristen Elledge, Jasmine Anderson, and Niki Pouncie.

The family has requested no service. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Assembly of God’s Word Building Fund, 3184 Hwy 18S, Moravian Falls, NC 28654.
