Joanne Frances (Dailey) Williams, age 84, passed away at MCHS in Eau Claire on December 28, 2019. She was born to Benjamin and Ella (Murphy) Dailey on April 6, 1935 in Elgin IL. They lived in Ferguson MO until her mother’s death in 1944. Joanne and her brother were then raised by her Grandma Murphy, Uncle Bill and Aunt Julia Murphy on their farm north of Marengo, where Joanne found a love of animals. She graduated from Marengo Community School in Illinois and had many close friends there that she kept in touch with over the years.

Joanne married Richard E. Dana and they had a daughter, Cynthia. Joanne later married Donald Williams in 1967. They moved to the country near Sand Creek WI, which was a good fit for her with her love of animals. Joanne worked as a successful real estate agent for several companies and was an award winning producer for Coldwell Banker for many years. Family was very important to Joanne and she loved spending time with her grandson and great grandsons. She had a strong faith in the Lord and an unbreakable bond with her brother, who she was in contact with almost daily. She enjoyed riding horses, reading and watching westerns, taking long walks through nature and watching NASCAR races.

She is survived by her brother: Benjamin (Mitsuko) Dailey of Japan; grandson: William Messenger of Elk Mound; great-grandsons Jacob and William; K-9 Companion Benji; numerous other in-laws, family members, neighbors and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents: Benjamin and Ella Dailey; daughter: Cynthia Ann Dana; many pets that she loved dearly.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 11, 2020 at 11:00 AM at New Hope in Sand Creek. There be a mass celebrated in her honor at Sacred Heart Church in Marengo IL and private interment in the church cemetery at a later date. Online condolences may be expressed at

I'm so sorry for your loss. Joanne was such a kind and lovely person. I loved line dancing with her on Tuesdays. We would both get left and right mixed up, bump into each other and giggle. It might have been a little frustrating for the other dancers, but we always had fun and lots of laughs.

I was four years old when I first met Joanie in 1954. I fell in love with her when my brother told me Joanie was my new sister-in-law. Joanie was beautiful with a cute figure and dark sparkling eyes which looked like doe eyes. Despite our age difference, she always spoke to me like I was an adult and would talk with me for hours. Even after she was no longer married to my brother, our family continued to love her as "kin." I feel fortunate to have known this gentle lady and I pray that "light perpetual" will shine upon her.
