YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio JoAnn “Nanny” Felder 52, Youngstown, departed this life on Monday, May 8, 2023 at her home following a brief illness. 

JoAnn was born December 14, 1970 in Youngstown, a daughter of Joseph B. Felder and Ernestine Cross.

JoAnn graduated from East High School in 1989 and in 2000 she obtained her nursing license from Choffin Career and Technical Center.

She was a dedicated nurse for over 20 years. She was a devoted grandmother to her nine grandchildren and made sure that she took every chance she had to pour into them. On Sundays and Wednesdays her family knew not to bother her as she was either watching “Survivor” or the “The Dog Pound” play football and despite their poor record, she loved her Cleveland Browns. 

JoAnn leaves to cherish her memories her mother and bonus father, Squire and Ernestine Cross; her daughters, Shatiqua (Brandon) Lyons and Keyauna (Dasmin) Williams; her sister, Sonya (Hubert) Floyd; her brothers and sister-in-law, Mark Felder, Joe Felder, Jr., all of Youngstown and Squire (Sophia) Cross of North Carolina; her beloved grandchildren, Micah, Makiayah, Tamya, Tamia, Bryson, Dasmin, Jr., Amir, Jasmin and Knowledge; her ex-husband, Marc Berry and a host of other family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her father and grandmothers, Mary Lee Felder and Lols Rosier.
