We are sorry to hear of your loss of Johanna, we remember all the fun times we shared at Burwood Spinal Unit as colleagues & workmates , all the great parties & her great sense of humour. Johanna always had a great sense of style.
Johanna, I had the privilege of working with you at Burwood, we worked bloody hard and had fun doing it. Your compassion balanced by your no-nonsense attitude no doubt made a difference in many people’s lives over the years. Rest easy Joey xx????
My heart skipped a beat when I read of Johanna's death. I trained with Johanna in Ashburton (1978 - 19179) and spent many a good time with her and our class mates Liz, Clare and her very dear friend Jillian. While we stayed in touch for a few years following our lives went in different directions; Johanna has always remained in my thoughts and memories. Rest in peace beautiful. Sincere condolences to her family and Jillian.
