In loving memory of Joanne Christine Villela, 47, who was born on June 6, 1973, and chosen by our Heavenly Father to be one of his Angels on February 8, 2021.
Joanne was accompanied in death by her husband, her High School Best Friend, Enrique “Henry” Villela who passed on February 23, 2021. Together they shared two fur-baby Beagles “Maximus & Bella”, who will miss them dearly.
She was a beautiful, loving, giving woman who opened her heart and home to all she knew. She loved spending time with Family and showering them with love. She had the ability to sense when others needed her help and without hesitation provided an ear to listen, open arms to comfort and/or words of wisdom to ease any heartache or pain. She loved to cook and was a self-made chef of all foods, which provided not only comfort, but memories of family traditions. She shared a love for Disney Movies with her Husband Enrique and her favorite movie of all was Beauty and the Beast.
Joanne was beautiful soul whose heart was full of love and kindness and for that reason was loved by so many in return. She not only cared deeply for her family, but also for her friends and coworkers. She adored them all and considered them part of her family and would often share fond memories and stories of them.
Joanne was preceded in death by her mother, Irene C. Flores.
She is survived by father, John Z. Flores; sister, Nancy Flores; brother, John Flores, Jr. (Anissa); sister, Barbara Guinea (Rudy); and many nieces and nephews.
Joanne will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
Memories of her will live on and remain in our hearts…forever.

So hard to find the words that explain what has happened but only know that we send you all positive vibes, energy, love and prayers that you may find comfort in all your Treasured Memories
Her beautiful soul will NEVER be forgotten in our hearts. Our family send you lots of love of prayers and will always be here when you need us!❤️❤️❤️
The loss of a loved one is never easy. But you have to remember how blessed you were to know and love her during her time here on earth. She was your sister, your daughter and your Aunt and I’m sure she wore those hats with honor. There will be days that the sadness, heartache and tears of Joanne leaving will seem to have no end but don’t forget to smile for her for she no longer has to fight for she has gained her wings. Also remember that although she left this old world she has not left you. God I pray that you help the family to accept what you have allowed. Yes they loved her but You loved her first. I’m praying for God’s comfort and love to rain upon the family during this difficult time.

I will forever smile when I think of Joanne…we had a matching sense of humor and she always knew exactly how to make me laugh! She was such a generous, kind, loving soul that her passing breaks my heart. The next time I have a hearty laugh I’ll also smile because I’ll know she’s there with me.
Please accept my sincerest condolences. Joanne was a dear friend and will be missed by many. Joanne was the most unselfish person I knew, never complain, and always called to see how you doing, her kind heart was for everyone.
Thank you for being the most beautiful person I’ve ever met, for accepting and loving everyone. You will never be forgotten.

Our condolences to the John Flores Family and all their loved ones. May they find comfort with God blessings in this unpleasent passing of Joanne. She will always remain in your heart with enduring memories of who she was to all who knew her.
We all have lost one of the truly kind souls in this world, taken far too soon. I only worked with Joanne for only about a year, but her hard work, diligence, positivity shined through. She made a lasting warm, welcoming impression on those who were fortunate enough to have met her. My condolences to her family and friends for the loss of a very special person.
It’s been difficult to find the words to say. I want to thank you for sharing such a wonderful person with us. Joanne was and will always be remembered as the most loving and sweetest person to have ever walked into our lives. She made an impact on us all, and it’s hard to imagine a world without her. Though we know she will live on in our hearts. We are comforted in knowing that my brother and Joanne are together. I couldn’t have asked God for a better best friend, companion, or wife for my brother. We were all truly blessed with her and she will be dearly missed.
Thank you. Thank you for loving us the way that you have. You have always been my big sister, and I will cherish our memories together forever. Above all, I want to thank you for being the most amazing and loving wife to Henry. You are the Sally to his Jack, simply meant to be.
You’ve left a footprint on everyone’s heart. So for now, I’ll miss you and I’ll always love you. I’ll see you both in my dreams.
