JoAnne (Myers) Prowant, co-founder of Durant Enterprises, Inc. passed away on Friday, December 26, 2014. To honor JoAnne and her life’s work in the concession and amusement ride industry, family and co-workers set up the Candy Castle concession trailer and the original Myer’s Frozen Dessert truck. During a ride through Dupont in the evenings last week, one was greeted with the colorful flashing lights of the Candy Castle – where JoAnne spent many hours overseeing the business of concessions and amusements at fairs across the region. On display also were many photos of Ray and JoAnne through their years working together, side-by-side building the successful family business. It truly was a fitting tribute honoring JoAnne Prowant’s leading role in Durant Enterprises.
