Obituary for Joan Margaret Gates

Joan M. Gates, of Batavia, Ohio, was born in Rochester, Minnesota on February 12, 1948 to the late Edward and Violet Steffes. Joanie left this earth for her heavenly reward on April 10, 2019, surrounded by her loved ones at home.
 
Joanie Gates (Steffes) was the devoted wife of Mark Gates for 49 years.She was a loving mother to Daniel Gates (Annette) and was preceded in death by her daughter, Jennifer Ann Gates; proud grandmother of Jonathan (15), Madison (13) & Emma (9) Gates; sister to Allan Steffes (preceded by Mary),(Mary Jo), Dianne Chafoulias (Theodore), David Steffes (Maureen), Robert Steffes (Diane), Anne Doring (Wes Archer).  Joanie is also survived by 14 nieces and nephews, 27 great nieces and nephews, preceded in death by Christopher Chafoulias.
 
Joanie’s occupation was a nurse, but her love and passion was in floral design.  Joanie had a faith filled life that brought her family strength and guidance; her sense of humor and wit will be greatly missed.  The love and care she had for family and friends was unequalled.
 
Services to celebrate Joanie's life will be held on Thursday, May 9, 2019, at St. Mary of the Assumption Parish in Springboro, Ohio.  Visitation will be held at 10:30 am with an 11:00 am mass to follow; family and friends are invited to gather for a reception after mass in the church hall.
