Loving Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and Friend


JoAnn Baureis nee D'Agostino, a longtime resident of Johnsburg, passed away suddenly October 17th 2019.

JoAnn was the beloved wife of the late Dennis. Loving mother to Katie (Mike) Madsen & Sarah (Walt) Horowicz, and was preceded in death by her son Marty. Cherished grandmother to Zegan, Abilene, Jaxon, Griffin, & Josie. Daughter of the late Lee & the late Shirley D'Agostino. Dear sister to Jim, Don (Joyce), Mike (Winnie) D'Agostino, Anna (Tom) Duerr, and the late Leo D'Agostino. Adored aunt to many nieces and nephews, as well as a dear friend to many.
She was a treasured "Grandma Jo" to many "adopted" grandchildren. JoAnn was a beautiful person inside and out, and showered those around her with selfless love. She always gave never expecting anything in return. She was an exemplification of living gracefully, even after so much personal loss. We marveled at her strength.

JoAnn excelled at being a grandma and valued the time spent with her grandchildren. She had a sense of urgency to live life to the fullest with them. Her grandchildren will always remember "Sunday fun days" spent fishing at Grandma's.

She loved looking out at her beloved Fox River, especially when she spotted her favorite bald eagle visitors soaring above.

JoAnn brought a light into the world that was so radiant that it will continue to shine on, the echo of her infectious laugh will always remain.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to JoAnn's favorite charity,
