Sylvia Joanne Widrig, 76, of Edgewood, KY entered into eternal life peacefully on Monday, September 24, 2018 at home in the arms of her loving husband and surrounded by her 13 children.  A native of Newark, Ohio, Joanne was born on May 30, 1942 to the late Harold Haynes and Gisela Wadner Melick.  She was a homemaker whose greatest joy was caring for her family.

Joanne enjoyed her life with family, friends, the Catholic Church, flowers and wildlife, reading on the deck, dancing with her husband, and cheering for UK basketball and the Cincinnati Bengals. She was full of positivity and love, had a great sense of humor, and was always ready for a hug. Joanne will be deeply missed.
