Joette was the director of community services and a very active member of Rotary both in Oswego and Bonita Springs,Florida.
Joette was passionate about bringing clean water to under developed countries.
Lover of travel, Paris held a special place in her heart, but at the drop of a hat she was ready to go most anywhere fun.
She brought a magical inner spirit to the grandchildren with Christmas magic, fairy dust, and magical secret gardens.
She never passed a consignment shop that didn’t make her car veer sideways.
She was a vibrant woma and advocated for others to be likewise empowered.
She will be forever in our hearts.
A celebration of life will be held at the Foundry in Oswego on Sunday at noon.
Donations to her honor can be made to Clean Water for the World.
