1938 - 2020
JOANN RISLEY JoAnn (Jody) Risley, age 81, died Wednesday, January 8, 2020 with family at her side. She was born to Mary and Joe Powell in Buhl Idaho on January 25, 1938. She is survived by her three sons, Joseph A. Risley, Steven M. Risley, and William A. Risley Jr.; and two grandchildren, Alyssa T. Risley and Jameson C. Risley. Her husband, William Risley Sr., died in April of 2002. Her father was a strong and tough Irishman but he loved her intensely as he raised her as a single parent until remarrying Juanita (Skeets). JoAnn was a child of the West and grew up around mining and ranching communities. She made friendships within the rich diversity of the Southwestern cultures. She would eventually give to her children the same open minded tolerance and respect for all people, no matter creed or color. JoAnn has flown away but her spirit lives on in the hearts of those she knew and loved her. She will never be forgotten. A celebration of life will be at 10 a.m. Fri., Jan 24, at Palm Mortuary, 800 S. Boulder Hwy., Henderson, NV 89015.
