Obituary for JoAnne Elizabeth Sanom

Joanne Elizabeth (Cash) Sanom, aged 89, of Detroit, Michigan passed away Monday, February 11th, at Beaumont Hospital surrounded by her children. Born August 11, 1929 to Opal and William Cash, Joanne's family moved to Detroit when she was young and she ultimately graduated from Cooley High School in 1947.
On May 16, 1948, Joanne married Charles Albert Sanom and began raising a family of her own. Together, they had six children and Joanne became mother, homemaker, and garden enthusiast for the ensuing 20 years. As their kids grew up and moved away from home, Joanne became a business woman as well. She and Chuck traveled extensively and enjoyed taking kids and grandkids along wherever they went. Joanne and Chuck loved their family!
Joanne never fulfilled her lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian, however, she spent a great deal of her time adopting and caring for dogs, cats, birds, and wayward humans. For a period of time, she and Chuck owned and trained racehorses as well.
Preceded in death by her son, Charles Raymond (February,1994) and her husband of 52 years, Charles Albert (January,2002), Joanne is survived by her children: Karen Sanom-Miller (Steve), Albert Charles, Michael George (Karen), William Lionel(Debi), Patrick Scott(Diana). In addition, Joanne leaves behind 13 grandchildren, 33 great-grandchildren, and 3 great-great-grandchildren.
A gentle soul, Joanne is now at peace in her garden with loved ones who went before. A funeral service celebrating her life will be held Saturday, February 16th from 10 A.M. to 1 P.M. at Sawyer-Fuller Funeral Home in Berkley, Michigan. Luncheon will follow at Farina’s Banquet Center, also in Berkley. Memorial contributions in lieu of flowers to Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation (www.alzinfo.org) or The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (www.aspca.org)
