Administrative Assistant


Miss JoAnn,

What can we say.. Ms. Bergeman has been a staple around the Church and school for so many years. We don't know what we sill do if she ever decides to retire.

Janitor, Day Care , Administrative Assistant. JoAnn does it all.

If you can't find something just ask Miss JoAnnn. She will tell you exactly where it is.

She knows the facility better than she knows her own home.

Infact I think that Redeemer is her home.
