Joanne Johnston (Office Administrator)

Joanne lived in Edmonton Alberta, where she was born, until moving to Spruce Grove in 1977, where she has lived ever since. Here she raised 2 amazing daughters, started the Parkland Music Teachers’ Association, finished her degree (ARCT) and continues teaching piano privately.

In her first years at St. Andrew’s (1982) she was asked to accompany the Cherub Choir and then moved on to playing for services, the Quartet, Adult Choir plus numerous “fun” events like “Puttin’ on the Ritz”.

Joanne worked as administrator and operatory assistant for the Spruce Grove Denture Clinic before more recently taking on the position of office administrator at St. Andrew’s, and simply loves the experience! (2012)
Although she admits it’s been a learning curve of steeper proportions than one would think, and, it has given her a great appreciation for the previous people who have “sat in this chair”, she enjoys greeting everyone that walks through the door and hopes she is of assistance to those who need support here at the church and beyond. Drop by during office hours and you’ll find the coffee is always on!
