Of Edgewood, age 69, passed away peacefully, surrounded by love and laughter, on Monday, March 22, 2021. Loving mother of Marian Neilson and the late Andrew Neilson. Doting Grandma Jo of Keeghan and Quentin. Cousin to many Petersons and Flosniks and “other mother” of a scattered batch of misfit toys. Joanne was the founder and CEO of Abator. She was a pioneer in her industry, a guiding light and mentor to many diverse small business owners. Joanne will be missed by many friends, colleagues, and her Tribe. A memorial service will be planned for the Fall. In honor of Joanne's lifelong voracious love of reading, please send gifts in her memory to C.C. Mellor Library, 1 Pennwood Avenue, Pittsburgh PA 15218, https://ccmellorlibrary.org.
