Earlier in life, Joni worked for Jordan Marsh from 1969 through the 1980s. Following Charlie’s retirement, he and Joni opened their own business in South Portland, Premier Video. They had a great following as people always loved coming to the store where Charlie and Joni would share their vast interests. Charlie and Joni knew everyone, their kids, and their pets. They were always there to help.

Together, Joni and Charlie enjoyed traveling, especially trips to California, Hawaii, and Graceland. She was an avid Elvis, KD Lang, and Melissa Etheridge fan, attending many of their concerts.

Charlie and Joni adopted and rescued many different cats over the years. Her love for the welfare of her cats never wavered, even in her last days. Simon and Nikita were with her at her bedside.
