JoAnne Bricco passed from this world on Tuesday, July 13, 2021. A loving wife, mother,
grandmother and great-grandmother, she spread love and joy with her kind words and infectious smile.
She was devoted to her family and to her faith. She was a member of Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church in Greenville, SC where she sang for Mass celebration, and served for many years as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion both in church and to the homebound members of the parish.
