JoAnn graduated from Faulkner University with a Bachelor's Degree in Human Resources Management and also had an Associates Degree in the paralegal field. She had such a colorful personality and sense of humor. She was always ready with a funny story to tell.

She was a devoted wife, a loving mother, and a proud grandmother, especially during her favorite time of year, the holiday season, when she would show off her cooking skills for her family and friends. JoAnn was one of a kind and will be missed by all who knew and loved her. She was preceded in death by her father, Lonzie Keebler, and her mother and step-father, Alice and John England. Survivors include her husband, Joseph "Bobby" Howard; sons, Louis Alan Keebler (Tabitha) and Joey Keebler (Autumn); step-children, Wilder Darius (Drew), Joshua Howard, Nick Howard (Becca), Chris Howard, and Mercedes Byron (Justin); numerous grandchildren; brother, Robert Morris (Priscilla); sisters, Cynthia Ballard (Richard), Sylvia Roberts, and Rosemary Sowell; her fur babies, Tuffy and Ryder and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
