Joanne Edna Ziebarth

February 9, 1945 ~ January 13, 2022 (age 76)


Joanne Edna Ziebarth, age 76, of Buchanan, died peacefully Thursday, January 13, 2022.

Her life began February 9, 1945 in Three Oaks, Michigan to Edward and Edna Ziebarth. She married John Michael Thomas Jarman on February 19, 1963, in Three Oaks. After nineteen years of marriage, he preceded her in death.

Jo, as her nieces and nephews called her, was bubbly, full of life, and laughter. She could talk to anyone and made friends quickly. She loved Michigan, with its four seasons. Jo cherished spending time with her family. She was a bingo queen and relaxed while doing jigsaw puzzles. She also enjoyed dancing, singing and bird watching.

Joanne will be greatly missed by family and friends. She is survived by two daughters, Charmaine (Ronald) Bolin of Saint Joseph, Carissa (Doug) Copeland of Tullahoma, Tennessee; two sons, John (Cathy) Jarman of Sawyer, Jay (Dawn) Jarman of New Carlisle, Indiana; eleven grandchildren, Brad (Rida) Armentrout of Madison, Alabama, Beth (Noah) Aker of Saint Joseph, Danielle Lee of Michigan City, Indiana, Abigail Jarman, Lilly Copeland and Zackery Copeland all of Tullahoma, Tennessee, Tiffany Jarman of Sawyer, Destiny (Roger) Light of Niles, Tia (Adam) Kling of South Bend, Indiana, Donovan Standifer of South Bend, Indiana, Travis Jarman of Granger, Indiana; thirteen great grandchildren; one sister, Charmaine (James) Thompson of Three Oaks; and a host of nieces and nephews. She will also be greatly missed by her dearest friends, Carolyn Zimmerman, Marlene Miesner, and Noreen Leeser.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, John Jarman; and one brother, Ronald Ziebarth.

The family prefers contributions in memory of Joanne to be made to Caring Circle Hospice, 4025 Health Park Lane, Saint Joseph, Michigan 49085.
