HAUGHTON – JoAnn McGraw Duelm was born in Shreveport, LA on July 28, 1952. She went to be with the Lord on February 11, 2014 at the Grace Home in Shreveport, LA. A memorial service will be held at Hill Crest Memorial Chapel on Saturday, February 15, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. The family will be receiving friends at Hill Crest Memorial Chapel on Saturday from 12:00 until time of service.
JoAnn loved to entertain and never met a stranger. Her feisty spirit will keep her forever in the hearts of everyone who met her. Wife, mother, grandma, sister, aunt or friend – no matter what she was called – she will most definitely be missed!
There to greet her in Heaven was her devoted husband, William E. Duelm; parents, Mr. and Mrs. Rex McGraw, Sr.; brother, Rex McGraw, Jr. and nieces, Tammy and Kim McCalister.
Left to cherish her memory are her sisters, Shelia Mann and husband Dalton and Mrs. J.T. Bass and husband Jerry; brother, Danny McGraw and wife Betty; daughters, Tiffaney Reardon and husband Matthew, Sonya Ayon, Jennifer Stengel and husband Wesley and Brittany; seven grandchildren, Morgan, Joe, Amanda, Mason, Madison, Luke and Kadin; three great grandchildren, Seth, Hunter and Holly, numerous nieces, nephews and special friend, Mike Godfrey.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the compassionate staff at Grace Home for making our mother’s final journey very peaceful, and to her nurse, Diane – “Your singing meant the world to us!”
