On December 1, 1956, in Eldorado, she was united in marriage to George Edward ‘Ed' Jackson. To this union was born four children - George Jr., Terry, Karen, and David. Joanne and Ed lived in Hutchinson, Burns, and Eldorado, Kansas, before moving to Bartlesville, Oklahoma where Ed became employed by Phillips Petroleum.

Joanne retired as the Food Service Director from the Caney School District after 29+plus years. Joanne was a member of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church for over 46 years. She was active in the Alter Society and Choir. She enjoyed cooking and baking, walking and exercising, watching old movies, gardening and mowing lawns. For many years, Joanne and Ed ‘adopted' numerous city flower beds, receiving multiple recognitions and awards for their efforts and love of flowers.

Joanne will be best remembered for her kindness, caring heart, and positive outlook on life. Joanne loved to laugh.

Survivors blessed by her memory are her children, George Jr., Terry, and David; sister Delores Calvert of Burlington, KS, brothers Richard Hill of Dallas, TX, Verne Hill of Tulsa, OK, and Butch Hill, Phoenix, AZ. Joanne was preceded in death by her parents, husband George ‘Ed' in 2001, and daughter Karen in 1985.
