JoAnn V. Casarez

March 19, 1954 — August 9, 2023

Seguin, Texas

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of JoAnn (Josephine) V. Casarez, a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and cherished friend. She was born on March 19, 1954, in Seguin, Texas, where she spent her childhood and formed lifelong bonds with her family and community. On August 9, 2023, surrounded by her loved ones at home, JoAnn peacefully left this world to join the eternal embrace of her heavenly Father.

Throughout her life, JoAnn had a zest for life that was truly contagious. She approached every day with a beautiful smile and a heart full of compassion. Her warm and caring nature touched the lives of all who were fortunate enough to know her.

JoAnn had an array of interests that brought joy to her life. She loved immersing herself in the beauty of nature through camping trips with her family. One could often find her playing bingo, eagerly anticipating each call of the numbers. But perhaps nothing brought her more delight than gazing through the window at home, marveling at the graceful presence of the birds. JoAnn found solace and inspiration in these simple pleasures.

JoAnn's love for family knew no bounds. She leaves behind a legacy that will forever be etched in the hearts of those she held dear. Her dearly beloved husband Julian Casarez stood by her side throughout their journey together. Their unwavering love was an inspiration to all who witnessed it. In addition to Julian, JoAnn's memory will continue to live on through their children: Jennifer Castillo (Michael), Julian Casarez (Monica), and Jessica Montes (Erick).

Being a grandmother brought immeasurable happiness to JoAnn's life. She adored her grandchildren and cherished every moment spent with them. Tiffanie, Jeremiah, Sierra, Julian, Jillian, Isla, Timothy, and Emery brought boundless laughter and joy into her life, and their memories together will forever hold a special place in their hearts.

JoAnn's strength and resilience were nurtured by the love and support of her family. 

She is further survived by her siblings Rosa Sepulveda (Irineo), Oscar Villarreal (Diane), Gloria Macias (Luis), Sylvuia Mc Phail (Mike), Cynthia Rojas (Guillermo Sr.), Norma Camarillo (Joel), Abel Villarreal (Maria), Stephen Villarreal (Margie), Elizabeth Gomez (Mario), and Ruben Villarreal (Alma) were her pillars of strength throughout her life's journey.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Ruth and Pedro Villarreal, as well as her brothers, Pete Villarreal and Carlos Villarreal.

To honor JoAnn's life and celebrate the impact she had on others, friends and loved ones are welcome to join for a visitation at Palmer Mortuary  on August 17, 2023, from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM. The Holy Rosary will be recited at 7:00 PM.

A Mass to commemorate JoAnn's life will be held at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, on August 18, 2023. The Mass will begin at 10:00 AM. Following the Mass interment will follow at Santo Tomas Cemetery.

JoAnn V. Casarez will forever be remembered for her unwavering love and kindness that touched the lives of all who knew her. Her legacy will live on as a testament to the power of compassion, strength, and joy in the face of life's challenges. May she rest in eternal peace, forever embraced by the love she so selflessly shared with others.
