Joanne M McCue

April 15th, 1936 to January 27th, 2024
Joanne Marie McCue, 87, of Wales Township, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, January 27, 2024 after a 7-month decline from heart disease. She passed peacefully with her six children and sister at her bedside. She was born April 15, 1936 in Port Huron to the late Harvey and Dorothy (Strickler) Smith. Joanne loved her family and wanted each one to come to know the Lord. She shared that her walk with the Lord was because of the example of her Grandfather Strickler’s quiet, unwavering faith. She loved to write encouraging, informative letters and cards to family, friends and acquaintances over the years. Joanne enjoyed simple things like walking, berry-picking, baking bread, caring for her chickens, going to family camp, and worshipping with her church family. Joanne spent over thirty years working with the elderly, first at the St. Clair County Medical Center, and later at Bortz Nursing Home in West Branch. She is survived by her children, Dottie (John) Barnes, Vicky McCue, Sherie (Terry) Fahey, Pam Lashbrook, Rod (Karyn) McCue and Danny (Rachel) McCue; 29 grandchildren; 60 great grandchildren and 29 great-great grandchildren; sister, Susan (Dan) Rich; brother-in-law, Larry Hartel, sister-in-law, Elizabeth McCue; and many nieces and nephews.
