Joni was born on March 3, 1962, in Mattoon, IL, the daughter of Paul Crowder and Juanita (Swisher) Binnion. Joni found great joy in the simple things of life and she never met a stranger who didn't become a lifelong friend. Joni enjoyed going places - whether simply to town to get a soda or to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with her family. She was always eager to help friends and family in any way she could.

Joni will continue to live in the hearts and minds of those who had the pleasure to know her.

Joni is survived by her sister, Janet Maulding, sister-in-law, Mary Cline, as well as several nephews and nieces.

She was preceded in death by her parents; sisters, Linda Binnion and Ethel Smith; and brothers, Larry Cline, Maurice Binnion, Don Binnion, and Howard Binnion.
