Sad Times in Tulsa

We arrived in Tulsa on Saturday. Janet, Keith’s dear stepMom, passed at 3:30 a.m. Monday at Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa. She will truly be missed. What a wonderful lady, Mother, StepMom, Grandma to seven, and wife for dear Howell.

Janet Barkley Gaddis Joiner and Dad, Howell Joiner last summer in Coupeville, Washington

We are settled here outside of Dad and Janet’s home in Bixby (a suburb of Tulsa). Goober and Kona love Dad’s yard and neighborhood, not to mention all the treats Dad lavishes on them! We don’t know how long we will be here but we won’t leave before Dad is comfortable with us doing so.

  1. I am so sorry for your family to have lost her. What a blessing that you both are able to be there now with Keith’s dad. Love you both.
