JoAnn was born in St. Louis, Missouri on March 23, 1945 to Melba and Jesse Baker.  She entered into rest on May 29th 2015.

Funeral Services for JoAnn Wesel, 70, of Coquille, will be held at the Myrtle Point Chapel of Amling/Schroeder Funeral Service, 404 7th St.,  on Saturday June 13th at 11:00 a.m  Burial will be at the IOOF Cemetery in Bandon..  Following the services a celebration of JoAnn’s life will be held for family and friends at Mr. Zack’s banquet room in Coquille at 1:00 p.m.

JoAnn moved with her family to Bandon, OR. in 1955 where she attended school.  In 1960 JoAnn married Bill Wesel also from Bandon.  JoAnn and Bill continued to live in Bandon for several years but eventually moved to Brookings, OR. where they raised their three children.  Once their children were grown JoAnn and Bill moved to Lakeview, OR, finally settling in Powers.  While in Powers JoAnn ran a restaurant and then moved on to owning and running Abbott’s Market for many years.  Due to medical issues JoAnn was required by her doctor to retire.  She and Bill moved to Coquille in December 2014.

JoAnn was one of those rare individuals who never met a stranger.  Anyone she met became a good friend and even family.  She was a very giving person who was always there to help anyone in need and donated to many community activities while living in Powers.

She was an avid reader, enjoyed playing cards and loved word search and puzzle books which she was never without.  All those who knew her will remember JoAnn as someone with a wonderful sense of humor and could always make you laugh.

JoAnn is survived by her husband of 54 years Bill Wesel, daughter Nita and husband Gary Benson of Roseburg, OR, son Duane and wife Debbie Wesel of Brookings, OR.  step father Lester Olsen of Brookings, OR., Sisters Barbara Jackson of Redmond, OR, Sue Schirmer of Pasco, WA , Melba (Cricket) and husband Al Seefeldt of Livermore, CA and brother Ken and wife Myra Olsen of Redmond, OR.  In addition she is survived by six grandchildren, seven great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

JoAnn was preceded in death by her father Jesse Baker in 1956, brother Billy Baker in 1974, grandson Logan Whitaker in 1989, daughter Tracy Caudle in 2010 and her mother Melba Olsen in April 2015.
