JoAnn M. (Westra) Miller, age 77, of Rochester, MN passed away June 30, 2021 at the Cottagewood Senior Communities in Rochester.

JoAnn was born November 16, 1943 to John and Marjorie (Hendrickson) Westra in Pennock, MN. She moved to Rochester in 1957 and remained throughout her lifetime, living for 2 years in New Jersey where her husband of 39 years, William F. Miller, was stationed in the Army. JoAnn graduated from John Marshall High School in 1961 and married William in April of 1962. She most enjoyed spending time with family and friends; playing games, taking walks, spending time on the lake shores and fishing. She also enjoyed crafting and volunteering. In her time with us she positively impacted many lives with her love and joyful demeanor as well as her genuine faith and belief in God. She will be greatly missed.
