Born December 31, 1939 in Dunbar, PA, she was the daughter of Lida and Margaret (Cutright) Bennett. Joann grew up in Lambert, PA, where she married Robert Fisher.

Joann was the owner of Gram’s Coffee Shop in Masontown, PA, where she always befriended everyone and helped those in need. When someone came to the restaurant but didn’t have any money, she made sure they ate too. She would never let anyone go without. She also worked at G.C. Murphy’s and the Ronco shirt factory. Joann was very involved in her community. She started the Masontown Octoberfest and headed it up for years. She also organized other annual events for Fourth of July and free Christmas dinners at Gram’s.
