Hi Everyone -

It is with a VERY heavy heart that I come in today to tell you that our Dear Joanna/StudioArtVartanian has passed away suddenly. We have no information as to when services will be or other information. But we wanted you all to know before you had to find out outside of our Renderosity Family.

Joanna was very loving, caring and genuine. She had such a kind heart and would do whatever she could to help anyone when needed. There are not too many people like her left in the world and she will be dearly missed.

I will miss her and the kind words she always had for me as well as the Hugz and Smiles, she ended every email with.

If anyone has anything they would like to share with her Mom (I'm sure she would love to hear it as she is devastated and lost) please send an email to vendors@renderosity.com or admin@renderosity.com and we will pass them on to her.

With a heavy heart, I say farewell Joanna, you will forever be loved and remembered by all whose lives you've touched.

We are working on putting something together to honor this beautiful lady so please keep an eye out, I will post it in the Community forum when we get everything all lined up.

Here is the Eulogy written by long time friend renapd (Rena):

Some people are born under a star.

Too talented, too gifted, too special, with an incredible aura that brushes off positively to all those around them.. Jo was one of those charismatic people!

What I will always remember of Jo is not her incredible work but mostly her glorious laughter! Deep, unique and loud, coming from her heart! Since the moment I found out of her untimely and tragic loss, that happy laughter of hers, keeps playing over and over in my head!

Jo was a happy, joyful person! The type you loved to socialize with, chat and have fun with! Somehow she always magically managed to bring a smile on your own face too!

Her sketchbook of the Arts Degree that she got was too limited to hold her endless ideas..She loved to explore and conquer new software frontiers! Jo was one of a kind of a stubborn, superb 3d-creator, a true hard worker, a generous personality, eager to help others without a second thought.. but mostly a curious kid at heart!

Her social circle.. was quite limited! Family and a handful of selected close friends among vendors and store staff. I consider myself extremely privileged to be among them.. to be the one not just close to Jo but her mother too.

Jo will not be missed terribly only by people.. a neighborhood of cats and dogs that she was always looking after and caring will miss her terribly too! Her pure heart was melting at the sight of an abandoned kitten or an injured one. She wouldn't hesitate to spend a fortune to the vet and nurse them back to health with love and sleepless nights care. One of her favorite pets was a one eyed cat! A couple of litters had been born under her very own bed.. stray cats that would walk inside her open door at winter time. That's the kind of person Jo was!

Usually, when I start typing... I keep writing endlessly, paragraph after paragraph trying to keep up with my thoughts, most of you know what a blabber mouth I am.

But this time.. I find myself numb and at loss of words! I just can't bring myself to say "goodbye" to Jo!

So farewell my friend.. till we meet again, you will be missed more than you know!

OMG! We will miss you so very much Joanna! Will keep you & your family in my prayers. This is truly a great loss. 😢 God must have needed a new angel in Heaven to take you from us so soon. I was just talking with you a few weeks ago. I'm in shock.

Have a creative day!

A new star in the sky... a really bright one. But the world will be missing a genuine nice person. Someone beautiful in all sense of the word and an example to everyone. You would never hear her name without having a smile on your face, both with admiration for the artist and for the wonderful human being she was. Jo.. you will be missed, big time hon. Fly high and proud. You did everything right!

I can not believe it, she was such a wonderful person. Always willing to help when help was needed, always a good word. She will be missed so much. My heart goes out to her family , her friends and everyone who loved her.

You will be missed dear Joanna, you left a big empty space in the 3D Community and in our hearts.

I'm sorry to hear this sad news. I never got a chance to talk to Joanna, but I've seen her vendor name for years and I've always loved looking at her creations. I would like to send my condolences and prayers to her mother and family.

Kristi, you summed it up perfectly, Joanna was one of the nicest and thoughtful peoples I met around here. When we had sparetime Joanna and me enjoyed a little chit chat over the Rendo Messenger and shared our daily life. I knew that her health was not the best, but this is shocking and leaves me speachless and said. What a loss!

I'm not always right, but my mistakes are more interesting!

And I am not strange, I am Limited Edition!

I knew Joanna only by her username but she was a dear and special human being. May all those who loved her be consoled in this moment of grief and our hopes that when you stare into the heavens tonight, you will notice a new star burning brightly where one was not present before.

God Bless you Joanna

OMG.... this is sooo heartbreaking!!! I am simply tossed to the ground! I simply don't know what to say! I remember when she first got things going and asked me to be a beta tester for her coat she was working on waaaay back when. OMG!!!! 😢

Such terrible news, I've just spoken with her recently and am very sorry to read this. my heart goes out to those she left behind. A great loss for our community too, as she was never too busy for a friendly reply. She will always be remembered for that.

Like many here, I never knew her so the best I can do is mention her remarkable abilities. She was one of the most talented character designers in the community; her likenesses were extraordinary, and her dedication in those and other products was obvious to anyone who's seen one of SAV's promos. My condolences to those closest to Jo.

As everyone I am in shock such a wonderful lady who will be so sadly missed my thoughts are with her family at this heart breaking time.xx
