Joanne Charrette was my childhood neighbor; and hence, Joanne was part of my childhood, going all the way back to 4th grade at Sleepy Hollow Elementary School.  Joanne lived a few houses away, at the cul-de-sac of Walters Woods Drive. My childhood home was at nearby Copa Court.

I feel badly that I did not attend Joanne's funeral, in 1986. I did not attend because I did not know about it.  I was living in Maryland, at the time; and before that, I was living in North Carolina; and before that, I was in the Army.  And without social media, in those days; I lost touch with all those childhood neighbors, who lived in Malbrook and Walters Woods, all of whom are Stuart HS alumni, from the Sixties.  So, we all knew each other; we all hungout together; and we all knew and liked Joanne.

Since I missed Joanne's funeral, I feel the least that I can do is contribute a photo of Joanne to our alumni website, here.  I scanned it from the 1965 yearbook.  Joanne is listed as a Junior, in that yearbook.  The yearbook identfies her full name as "Joanne Marie Charrette".

Even as a child and into her teens, all of us neighborhood children knew that Joanne had a health issue.  My recollection is that it was epilepsy.  But not sure whether that was the cause of death, at age 38.

Joanne, of course, had a brother, named James "Jimmy" Charrette, who graduated with the Class of 1965.  Jimmy was one year older than Joanne.  I knew Joanne better than I knew Jimmy.
