Joan Rodriguez Obituary

Joannie Louise Rodriguez, 73, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loved ones on November 5, 2023, at 1:26 a.m.  Joannie was born on April 27, 1950, at the Memorial Hospital in Powell, WY. Growing up she loved being outside even if that meant being the first one to volunteer for yard work over housework. She attended High School in Byron as a Byron Eagle and was in the pep club and graduated in 1969.

After high school she married in 1971 and shortly after started a family. As a stay-at-home mom, she opened a daycare called “Fun Time Daycare.” She loved helping others – that is what she lived for. She would give the last cent she had to anyone that needed it! She was a very caring, compassionate, and strong woman that left an imprint on everyone’s lives that crossed her path. Some people would even say they strived to be like her because even though she was not rich she was rich with love.

Every summer if you drove by you would always see her, her sisters AKA Golden Girls, and good friends sitting on the porch listening to her “boyfriend Elvis” – even though he didn’t know she would say. Her grandkids great-grandkids, and all the neighbor kids joined them on the porch also. Everyone she met; she made them feel like they were family.

She was our super woman she beat the odds so many times when she was first diagnosed with her health problems. She fought and fought to stay on this earth for all her loved ones.

Joanie was preceded in death by Grandma and Grandpa McKinney; her father David O. Pearson; her mother Ruby Louise Hoffman; stepdad Robert “Bob” Hoffman; son Travis O. Burke; and sisters Kay Foster, Janie Foster, Debbie Burrows, and Judy Hoffman.

She is survived by daughters Krystal (Gerardo) Rodriguez of Byron, Abby Hernandez (Kevin) of Caldwell, Idaho, and Sandy (Vince) MCCollam of Byron; grandchildren Samantha (Diego) Delgado of Byron, Daniela (German) Soto of Powell, Steven and Juan Rodriguez of Byron, Chandra Burke of Spokane, Washington, Daniel (Jenny) of Deaver, Rosie (Jose) Cortez of Byron, Mike (Kylie) of Powell, Carlos (Sammi) Hernandez of Byron, Stephanie (Victor) Puentes of Byron, Ricardo Rivera of Powell, Shania (Trevor) Hardisty of Byron, and Dalton Foster of Lockwood, Montana; Great-Grandchildren Jayden and Diego Delgado of Byron and Liliana Soto of Powell; sisters Noralee (Jim) Cook of Windsor, Colorado, Linda (Jack) Barnes of Powell, Robin Barclay of Byron, and Peggy Bailey of Washington; brothers Bobby (Sheryl) Hoffman of Gardner, North Carolina and Russel (Judy) Hoffman of Douglas; and many many more adoptive children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
