JoAnn Rabbitt <http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/greatfallstribune/obituary.aspx?n=joann-rabbitt&pid=152868475>

 

JoAnn (Muhlenbruck) Rabbitt, 71, of Great Falls, died of natural causes Saturday, July 30, while attending a family reunion in Fort Dodge, Iowa.

Cremation has taken place. Her memorial service is 11 a.m. Monday at Croxford Funeral Home and Crematory, followed by a reception at the Casco Building.

Survivors include her husband of 50 years, Mike Rabbitt of Great Falls; son Allan (Tina) Rabbitt of Ulm; brother Robert Muhlenbruck of Las Vegas; grandson Josh Hlad of Great Falls; and a brother, Robert Mu.

JoAnn was born in Hampton, Iowa, a daughter of Floyd and Margaret Muhlenbruck. She grew up in Iowa, graduating from Latimer High School, and attended Drake University.

She married Mike Rabbitt in 1960, in Hampton. They made their home in Iowa, where their son was born. In 1967, the family moved to Great Falls when Mike's career brought them west.

JoAnn worked for attorney Orville Gray for a number of years before joining Woodman Accident & Life Insurance, where she worked for 12 years. She then worked for the Montana Department of Transportation until retiring four years ago.

Family was the center of JoAnn's life. Her family included many nieces and nephews, and numerous minor league baseball and hockey players JoAnn and Mike took in through the years.

Travel was what JoAnn liked best. She had her suitcase packed at all times, ready to go on a moment's notice. She enjoyed driving to take in the scenery on the way to sports events, or to visit family scattered across the country. She had five trips planned when she unexpectedly passed away. She also enjoyed family gatherings, reading, music and friends.

The family suggests memorials in JoAnn's honor to the local chapter of the American Heart Association <http://media2.legacy.com/adlink/5306/1506419/0/3380/AdId=1107323;BnId=1;itime=461401823;ku=1126232;key=AHA;nodecode=yes;link=https:/donate.americanheart.org/ecommerce/donation/acknowledgement_info.jsp?campaignId=68&site=Heart&itemId=prod20007&firstName=JoAnn&lastName=Rabbitt> .
