|Cause of death||
One day, Joanne was killed and her brother Jason assumed Stefan to be the killer. In his hunt, he discovered that her killer was a vampire and not Stefan, but his older brother Damon Salvatore. Joanne was declared to have been dead, but it is revealed that Damon fed Joanne some of his blood since it was revealed that she knew the existance of vampires and wanted to become one. Damon gave Joanne her wish and turned her.
During her time as a vampire, Joanne first encountered Lexi and Percy, who were visiting their old friends Will, Hank, and Elizabeth. Lexi and Percy decided to take care of her for a while and took it upon themselves to help Joanne to recover her humanity and keep her addiction in check. When Lexi left New York and travelled to Mystic Falls for Stefan's 162nd birthday, Joanne was taken care of Percy, and the two would form a relationship together.
