Meet Your Neighbor

By Dessa Rodeffer, Quill Publisher/Owner


Meet your neighbor Joann Corbin of Oquawka.

Joann was raised in Viola and is a 1979 graduate of Winola High School.

She enjoys cooking and crafts and is known as "The Pie Lady" around Oquawka. She made and delivered 20 Dutch apple pies this past week but she makes all varieties. She also works at the Oquawka Hub as a waitress and cook.

Besides taking orders for homemade pies, Joann enjoys cross-stitching family names.

In her free time she likes to spend time with her fiancee Yancy Hunter who has been putting in a lot of overtime at his job at CGB Elevator in Oquawka since Harvest began.

She also enjoys music, being with friends, and taking her pet poodle "Pugsley" to the Mississippi River for a swim.

Joann has two children, Savanah, age 20 of Galesburg who is studying to be a mortician, and Josiah, 17, who is a Junior at Yorkwood High School.
