JoAnn and her family moved to Rockdale in 1979 and they have been an important part of the community since then.
She is retired from Rockdale ISD and since her retirement she has been very involved with helping people out through working with the Food Pantry, helping with the Capitol Area food give-away both in Rockdale and Cameron. She is vice-president of the VFW Ladies’ Auxiliary, she visits the veterans at the VA Hospital in Temple and she takes vegetables from her garden to area senior citizens.
JoAnn says, “We need to help each other and I am so glad to be a part of that.”
JoAnn is a caring lady who gives a lot. We appreciate JoAnn for her caring spirit.
We also appreciate Love’s Flowers & Gifts and El Torito for the gifts they provide our Local Hero each week.
If you would like to nominate a local hero, those who work selflessly for our community, call the Chamber of Commerce at 446- 2030. This honor will be given to people who work hard to make our community better.—Denice Doss, Chamber president
