JoAnn Leslie Terrazas (Krumperman)

February 26, 1951 - January 14, 2015

JoAnn Leslie Terrazas (Krumperman) passed away peacefully on January 14, 2015.  JoAnn was born on February 26, 1951 to Joe and Eina Terrazas in Olathe, Colorado.

JoAnn grew up loving to travel and with a wonderful skill for numbers and business.  JoAnn received her bachelor’s degree in business from UCLA and specialized in accounting.

In 1983 she married her husband, Larry Krumperman and their marriage was going on 31 years.

After many years of service she retired from IRS.  In 1985 she had her one and only daughter and decided to open her own accounting business here in Ogden, UT.  She ran this                                                                                                                                          business for many years until her health slowed her down from doing so.  Larry became her devoted caregiver until the end.

JoAnn became a wonderful and enthusiastic grandma to two beautiful grandboys.  She loved being a grandma more than anything else and formed a very special                                                                                                                                                                     relationship with them.  JoAnn was a wonderful mother that always taught strength, perseverance, and kindness towards others.  She was always there to lend a helping                                                                                                                                                           hand and give advice.  JoAnn was a born leader and pillar of strength to all who knew her.

Mom, without you here the world is not as bright, but the heavens shine all the brighter.

We love you.

JoAnn is survived by her mother Eina Terrazas, her husband Larry Krumperman, daughter Lauren Krumperman, and two grandchildren Damian and Alexander Krumperman,                                                                                                                                 sister Bobbie Jones, and a large and loving extended family.  JoAnn was preceded in death by her father Joe Terrazas.

Lauren, So sorry to hear of your mother's passing. She was an excellent accountant for my family for quite a few years. She definitely knew her business. We missed her when she became too ill to continue working. I know how much you were loved and your wonderful children whom she loved intensely. May Our Father in Heaven bless you and comfort you and your dad at this time.

We were so sorry to hear of JoAnn's passing. Please find comfort in knowing she will live on in the memories you hold dear to your heart. JoAnn's parents and my parents were best friends in their younger years so please let Eina know how sorry my mom (Lydia Sanchez) is for her loss.

Dear Larry & Family; I'm sorry to hear of your loss of JoAnn, and wish you all the best at this time. I too, remember many good times with the both of you, soon after you were both married. Good gatherings with friends, JoAnn's great cooking, and her contagious laughter! I hope to see you again some day Larry, so look me & Olmstead up my old friend!

Dear Larry and family, I am saddened to learn of JoAnn's passing. She was always kind to me and welcomed me into her home on Adams Ave, where we shared lots of good times with friends. Larry, I'm very sorry for your loss and would love to hear from you as it has been too long since we've be able to talk. With Sympathy, Eric (cell 435.313.1043)

Sorry to hear of your loss. May fond memories get you ALL through this difficult time. My sister (Elaine) and I grew up as little girls with JoAnn and Bobby. Our parents were very close/good friends, both were born and raised in Colorado. As we grow and move on, we keep less and less in touch - which is unfortunate. None the less, It still comes as a sadden day when we start to lose those once familiar to us. May your faith and strength be with you today and always. Warmest Regards, Joyce Sanchez (Colleen Bailey)
