The family would like to give a special thanks to her close friends, Linda Weeks, Tammy Hill, Doris Hartsell, Christy Bachmeyer and Lisa Griffin, for all the friendship throughout the years, especially the help they provided during her illness. Joey and her family want to recognize Texas Oncology of New Braunfels for their superior medical care throughout her battle with breast cancer. Joey was a 1965 graduate of Tulane University, a Lake McQueeney Ski Bee in its early years and a longtime teacher in Seguin. Her favorite memories were her many road trips with her life long love, Sandy, spending time at her farmhouse with the YaYa’s, spending quality time with her grandkids and volunteering at her church!
