In loving memory of JoAnne Hensley:  1940- 2021


We regretfully announce the passing of our mom, LaDonna “JoAnne” Hensley, who passed away peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones Aug. 25, 2021 at the age of 80. 

JoAnne was born to John and Mary Wynn on Oct. 27, 1940, in the city of Pendleton, Oregon, and graduated from Echo High School, class of 1958. She worked in the service industry most of her life. She belonged to several fraternal organizations including the Woodland Washington Moose Lodge #2394, Newport Oregon Eagles #2817 and was a lifetime member of the Woodland Washington VFW Ladies Auxiliary #1927. She will be forever loved, forever remembered and her bright smile missed. 

She is survived by many loving individuals including her sister Julie Wynn; daughters Renee Kilian, Patricia Plumlee and Pamela Maxwell; son Alfred Duane “Butch” Fontaine Jr.; and her beloved fur baby Tobi. JoAnne also had 10 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren, and five great-great-grandchildren. 

She is preceded in death by both her parents, her loving husband John Hensley, brother Bill Wynn and sister Sharon Wynn. 

JoAnne requested a cremation and that her ashes be scattered at her favorite place in Depoe Bay, Oregon. There will be a private celebration of life with her family afterwards. 

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a cancer organization of your choice.
