Joanne Oliver Cassar

October 30, 2023


Joanne Oliver Cassar, 50, passed away, surrounded by her loved ones, on October 30, 2023. She was the daughter of the late Judy Vargas and Jerry Oliver. Joanne was an avid book reader, she loved being silly, dancing, animals, music, and the beach. Joanne had an award-winning home pet care service for the Hampton Roads. She was a woman with a wry sense of humor and a kind heart.

Her memory will be cherished by everyone who knows her. She was the treasured mother of Leah Kight, Layna Morris and Livia Shonkwiler, the devoted “Grammie” to Annalee Kight, Coralee Kight, Connor Leary, Emery Leary, and Reese Leary. Left to cherish her memory are her brother, Jayson Oliver and her step-mother, Betty Oliver, her faithful companion, Bryan Mills, and their fur baby Penny.

In lieu of flowers, Joanne’s family asks that a donation be made to a local animal rescue.
