Joetta went to school in Alvarado, and then proudly served our country in the U.S. Army. She was a bartender for many years, and retired after 25+ years in the trucking industry. Her greatest joy was watching her grandchildren and great grandson do what they loved, which was everything from sports and gymnastic, showing livestock and driving race cars. She was a daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, and mother, but most importantly she was GRAMMY JOE.
