After a long 13 years she finally rejoins her husband Lloyd, the love of her life. Joanie is the daughter of Herbert and Laura Dowsett. Joanie and Lloyd moved from Nuuanu to live on her father’s Lanikai property (now the Paul Mitchell Estate) in 1947. Joanie is a descendant of Gerrit Parmele Judd; missionary, Hawaii’s first physician and advisor to King Kamehameha III. The Shriner’s Hospitals for Children on Punahou Street was the original home site of J.M Dowsett, Joanie’s grandfather. Her father Herb Dowsett and his Sister Aileen gifted the property to the hospital group in the early ’30’s where it remains today. While living in Kona in the early 1950’s, Joanie was on then Gov. King’s commission to save historical sites. Through her efforts the 1,100 acre, Kaloko-Honokahau historical site became a National Historical Park in 1988. Joanie and Lloyd were very active in Masters Swimming for over 15 years. With her husband Lloyd, former Yale Swimming Team Captain, they hold over 50 national swimming records that stand to this day. Their amazing records have been heralded in numerous newspapers articles and magazines such as Sports Illustrated. In 1994 Joanie was inducted into Punahou Schools Athletic Hall of Fame, earning her the coveted ‘Winged O’. Joanie was a lifetime member of the Daughters of Hawaii, the Outdoor Circle and volunteer docent at the Bishop Museum. She is a member of the Punahou School class of 1933, attended the Schools at Dobbs Ferry in Westchester, NY and Tufts University of Occupational Therapy. She is survived by her four children Ellen, Gerrit (Gayle), Peter (Sue), Ian (Claudia), nine grandchildren and 12 great grand- children. Our family is eternally grateful to our mother’s beloved friend and caregiver Terry Ahing. She, along with her support staff, provided Joanie with the love and care one can only pray for. Joanie requested that her ashes be scattered in Kailua Bay. A private ceremony will be held to honor her request. She asked that any donations be sent to the Shriner’s Hospital, Island Hospice or the Wounded Warrior Project.
