Joanna Sarani

Born: 8/8/1941, Evanston, Illinois
Death: 8/30/2019, Moab, Utah
Service: 09/13/2019, 6:00 pm, Rockridge Senior Housing

Joanna was known to most as “Sarani”. Born in Evanston Illinois to John and Mildred Hamrin. Sarani’s father emmigrated to the United States from Sweden and became a very well-known builder in the Chicago area and built the family home where she grew up.

Sarani always had the dream of living out of the Chicago area. She landed in the San Francisco/Mill Valley area of California and this turned out to be the perfect place to nurture her interest in health, nutrition and alternative medicine. She spent time as a radiologist technician and learned a lot about muscles, bones and the internal workings of the body. As her thoughts turned to more alternative methods of healing and nutrition she changed her profession to massage therapy.

After her move to Moab in the late 90’s she continued to practice massage therapy until her own health circumstances forced her to retire but her interest in human health and wellbeing continued. Sarani studied and found new alternatives and treatments to help herself and shared them with those around her.

Many of her friends can attest to the great care and advice she gave. She always made sure her circle of friends were well cared for. In her most recent years was loved and cared for by Community Nursing Services’ caregivers Betty and Marlene. All those who knew Sarani benefited from her friendship. We will miss you dear friend.

AT Sarani request cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held, in Sarani’s memory, on the outside patio at Rockridge Senior Housing, 540 E. 100 North, Friday September 20th at 6pm.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
