Jo Anne Lambrecht-Peck

Jo Anne Lambrecht-Peck passed away Wednesday at Trinity West hospital in Rock Island.
Services will be held at Wendt Funeral Home, Moline, on Saturday, March 4, at 5 p.m. Visitation will be Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. A private family burial will be held in Cambridge Cemetery. Memorials may be made to the family.

Jo Anne was an avid supporter of continuing education for all people. She attended Augustana College, taking classes in local government and public administration. She continued her thirst for knowledge through Black Hawk College, the University of Illinois, and various seminars provided by the Township Officials of Illinois.

Jo Anne became active in the Democratic Party in the early 1970s. She spent many hours of volunteer time working in support of local, state and national candidates. She served as a member of the Moline City Council as Alderman, and then as City Clerk. She won her bid for Moline Township Supervisor in 1997, and served in that capacity until her death. In her role as supervisor, she focused her energy on helping those in need. She held a special desire to improve the quality of life for seniors in her community and was currently involved in the development of a parking lot for seniors who attend the Moline Activity Center (MAC). She was also a member of ABATE.

Jo Anne's art work is displayed in various buildings throughout the Quad-Cities. She loved sharing her artistic skills with her grandchildren and her friends at the MAC. She loved touring the country with her husband on their Harley. Most importantly, she loved fussing over holiday dinners that involved her entire family.

Survivors (and spouses) include her husband, Greg; and children, Donald (Diana) Fisher, Geneseo, David (Teresa) Fisher, Florida, Darrell (Cindy) Fisher, New Boston, Dixie (Todd) Hovey, Davenport, Marie (C.Paul) Peck-Ahles, St. Cloud, Minn., Raymond Peck, Moline; brothers, Milton (Barbara) Diveney Jr., Conesville, Iowa, Dan (Diane) Diveney, Trenton, Ill., Jim (Karen) Diveney, Muscatine, Iowa, Mike (Lonna) Diveney, Keokuk, Iowa, Pat (Fina) Diveney, West Liberty, Iowa; sisters, Sue Dilts, Mt. Juliet, Tenn., Sandy Danielson, Columbus Junction, Iowa; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, her father-in-law, and a granddaughter.
Jo Anne will be missed. Our thoughts are with her family.

Jo Anne Lambrecht loved her community, her party, her motorcycles and her fellow man. Whenever our comunnity loses a trail-blazzer, public servant and activist like Jo Anne Lambrecht, we suffer.

Thanks for the fond memories Jo Anne, your community misses you already!

In honor of JoAnne, I think all candidates should cease their campaigning for the weekend. She was a wonderful person, always positive and enthusiastic and we have lost a great, great person in this community. She led her township to several state awards for excellence in public service.
May the angels be with her now.

Joanne's cheery smile will be greatly missed.

She was classy yet a fighter and didn't let the nasty Republican tricks of the past that were put upon her to get her down. She won every time in the end no matter what they tried to do from the ugly red side of the aisle in Moline. Joanne's political skills were underestimated by the old guard Rub elite much to their frustration in the Moline Republican ranks.

Township government was Joanne's true calling and she will be greatly missed.
