Joann Parks-Buck

September 21, 1944 — March 12, 2020

JoAnn Parks-Buck is the most admirable woman to have ever walked this Earth. JoAnn passed peacefully in her sleep while surrounded by family on March 12th, 2020. JoAnn was born in Asheville, North Carolina on September 21st, 1944. She was raised in Hartland, WI and graduated from Arrowhead High School. JoAnn married Larry Buck on March 7th, 1981. JoAnn and Larry resided in Oconomowoc, WI for many years. She was a member of First Congregational United Church of Christ in both Hartland and Oconomowoc throughout the years. JoAnn’s family was her pride and joy: she was delighted with every opportunity to spend time with family, both immediate and extended. She enjoyed country line dancing, attending her grandchildren’s sporting and school events, camping with her family, playing Bunco, reading, and baking goodies, such as banana bread. JoAnn effortlessly touched the life of every person she met. She was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer on February 4th, 2020 and battled hard. JoAnn was cared for at Aurora Medical Center and Angels Grace Hospice in the final days of her wonderful life. The family would like to thank the caregivers for being so accommodating and comforting.

JoAnn is survived by husband Larry Buck, sons Wayne Dunn (Chicago, IL), Tim Dunn (Shelly- Watertown, WI), Shane Dunn (Molly- Oconomowoc, WI), Ken Dunn (Brenda- Appleton, WI) and daughter Darcie Nissen (Nate- Oconomowoc, WI). JoAnn lived a full life surrounded by 11 grandchildren (Corey Schulz (Cindy), Nathan Braun, Taylor Sorensen (Seth), Desirae Dunn, Madison Dunn, Shaylyn Dunn, Nadia Dunn, Isabel Dunn, Rylie Nissen, Arcata Dunn, Brighton Dunn) and 3 great grandchildren (Elijah Schulz, Jesselyn Schulz, Cylie Schulz). JoAnn is preceded in death by her parents Lloyd and Juanita Parks.
