A Personal Note: After Daddy and Matthew died we were so lucky that she decided to move to be near us in Texas. She spent many years as a caregiver to her mother and my dad that it was time for us to spoil her. We spent our time shopping, eating, talking, and laughing around the Dallas area. We also attended church together and watched or attended baseball games. Mom loved sitting on her screened in back porch and watching the birds and squirrels when she fed them. Mom met George W. Bush and he told her it was an honor to meet her. The twin Bush girls were also very sweet to her. Mom always loved to entertain. All that knew her loved her happy, full of laughter persona. She was the greatest mom and friend. To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Joanne B. Foltz, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
