CARMICHAEL, Calif. – JoAnn Rudin Nastal passed away Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2014, at a hospice facility in Carmichael, Calif.

JoAnn was born Nov. 2, 1925, in Warren, to Anton and Anna Rudin.

She and Stan were also an accomplished ice dance team, gracefully performing the patterned dances as required by the United States Figure Skating Association. They enjoyed many years together perfecting their skill, excelling at the paso doble, the fourteenstep and the Argentine tango.

Upon retirement, Stan and JoAnn moved to the Sacramento, Calif., area.
