Born on September 11, 1937, in Lake City, Minnesota, she is the daughter of the late George and Lillian (Geiger) Wieman. Raised in Wabasha, Minnesota, she graduated Wabasha high school in 1955 and was the homecoming queen. On September 12, 1959, she married Dale Isaacson at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Wabasha. Joann and Dale began their family in Minnesota until Dale’s job took them to Green Bay, WI. She was a devoted mother to her two children as well as their friends in the neighborhood, offering rides to practice and home cooked meals. Later in life, Joann continued this with her three grandchildren. She enjoyed spending time at the cabin, fishing, gardening, and spending time with her many neighborhood friends. Joann was an animal lover and raised many pets of her own as well as caring for other family pets.
