Johnette was a devoted and loving wife, mother, and Granny. She especially cherished her grandchildren and the special times that she got to spend with each of them. Johnette lived a full life taking care of her home and yard, fishing with her husband, and doing whatever she could to help others. She had a generous heart and always put others before herself.
