Joann McCallum McArdle of Chelsea, age 89, peacefully passed into eternal life on Sunday, July 25, 2021, surrounded by her family.
Joann was born Aug. 9, 1931.
Joann served others throughout her life as a hospice volunteer and foster grandparent in Florida, a cheerleading coach, girl scout leader, members of the Christian Mother and other church groups. Most recently she belonged to and was an active member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Chelsea, MI. Joann loved to bake and cook for others, go out to eat, take trips with local senior groups, and entertain in her home.
Her ever-growing faith in Jesus Christ became a source of increasing comfort during her end-of-life journey. She was most proud of her five daughters, the family cottage in the Les Cheneaux Islands in Upper Michigan and earning her academic certificate in Activity Therapy in Gerontology at Madonna University. Joann truly was a hands-on grandma! She shared and nurtured close relationships with each of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Arrangements are pending at this time.
