Joanne C. Craig

July 24, 1939 — April 21, 2022

Joanne C. Craig, 82, of Sioux City, IA passed away Thursday, April 21st evening due to cancer in the comfort of her home.  She was born in Menominee, MI to Virginia and Peter Christiansen who preceded her in death as well as her brother Donald Christiansen and sister Alice Mae Rosenbaum.

From the beginning of her childhood growing up on the shore of Lake Michigan to the end of her life she had a passion for boating, swimming, fishing, golf and into the winter with cross country and down-hill skiing. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends playing bridge, Euchre and Liverpool which was a family favorite.

Our mom was a successful City Manager for cities such as Allegan, Bangor and Plainwell, MI to the east coast of Claremont, NH.  Once retired she kept active with PEO, Catholic Sisterhood, Holy Cross, and GOP activities and had a great deal of fun as a Walmart Greeter.
