I wanted to let everyone know that JDuke has passed on 8-18-12. She is the person who had CSN start the anal cancer discussion board, as there was none until then. I have posted her obituary below:
DUKE, Joanne Smith, of Tampa, passed away August 18, 2012 at home, after a heroic four-year fight against cancer. Joanne was born November 14, 1955. She grew up in Tampa and graduated from King High School in 1973. Joanne is survived by her husband, Greg; son, Justyn; her parents, Eddie B. and Blanche Smith; her mother-in-law, Mary Duke; and sister, Bobbi McLeod (Billy). She was preceded in death by her sister, Betty Albrektson; father-in-law, James "Sonny" Duke; brother-in-law, George Duke. A memorial service and celebration of her life will be held from 11 - 1 Thursday, August 23, at The Carrollwood Cultural Center, 13345 Casey Road.
I hope that Joanne can see how much this board has helped so many of us. May she rest in peace.
