JoAnn Carol Kyser, 71, of Sweet Home died June 16, 2018 at Samaritan Wiley Creek Community.
She was born June 1, 1947 in Portland to Herman John and Myrtle Esther (Patrick) Zoet.
She was an active and engaged woman, always full of life and laughter. She was an active adventurer who hunted early in her life, traveled to Victoria, Canada and New York and most recently took a cruise with several friends to Alaska.
She was always looking forward and was planning a new adventure that included selling and moving from her home in Redland and setting up new roots closer to her children and grandchild.
Mrs. Kyser was a woman of faith who loved Jesus and gave much to all who were around her. She worked for years with the Awana youth program and her local church. She was an active member of the Secret Sister program, providing encouragement to other women in her social circle.
Professionally, she worked for Tektronix until its purchase by Xerox. She was hired by Xerox, and retired after 40 years of service.
Mrs. Kyser is survived by her daughter, Serena Taylor of Albuquerque, N.M.; sisters Joyce Olson of Tucson, Ariz. and Judy Thomas of Oregon City; step-daughter Stacie Voight of Sweet Home; and a step-granddaughter.
Mrs. Kyser was preceded in death by her late husband, Warren D. Kyser, who passed in 2012.
