River Forest United Methodist Church

Our organist, Joanna Vanni’s retirement service.

For all of us, Joanna Vanni has been a part of special events in our lives such as weddings, baptisms, concerts and special activities. Joanna’s music has touched many of us in different ways and at different times. We have clapped our hands as she played a fast and “upbeat” piece, and we have often felt deeply moved by the spiritual and classic music she played.

River Forest UMC has been blessed by Joanna presence in our midst and by her willingness to share with us her wonderful gift of music.  We will miss her, but she will always be a part of our church family.
