Joanna Wilson, Physique Competitor, Has Passed

Some very difficult and heartbreaking news to share today, but we just learned that one of our models, Joanna Wilson, has passed away. Joanna was an accomplished and inspirational personal trainer as well as a top national level physique competitor out of Washington state.

Friends related over Facebook that Joanna had been battling a case of pneumonia in recent weeks. Nevertheless, she was determined to compete this past weekend at the NPC USAs. Joanna flew to Las Vegas, but her health turned tragically for the worse.

All of us at Krivs Studio and across the industry are deeply saddened and extend our sincerest condolences to Joanna’s family. If you would like to donate, a GoFund me page has been set up to help the family with expenses at this difficult time.

One of her friends remembered Joanna as “the sweetest most giving person I have ever met. She will be missed.”

Joanna competed several times at the Emerald Cup in her home state and won the overall bodybuilding title at the show in 2010. Honoring Joanna, the Emerald Cup Facebook page read: “She was a loving wife and mother and everyone who knew her loved her. Our bodybuilding community grieves her loss.”
