Obituary for Joanne Hettrick

On Monday, October 23rd, 2017, our beloved Joanne “Grandma Jo” Hettrick peacefully transitioned out of this realm of life, wrapped in the loving support and energy of those who knew and loved her.
Joanne Marie Hettrick was born August 31, 1940, to Jack and Zulma, in Detroit, Michigan.
Jo led a very interesting and extraordinary life. Some of her life experiences include being a Dominican sister, a laboratory director for Indian Health Services on the Navajo reservation in New Mexico, USAID consultant, as well as a Peace Corps volunteer in Africa, and a medical technologist at UNMH.

She was a beloved daughter, sister, aunt, friend, mentor, partner, wife, and honorary Grandma. She was a passionate feminist, and an avid animal lover. She loved to read and listen to classical music. She was a kind, generous, strong, silly, humorous, brilliant, passionate, loving, open minded, determined, joyful, absolutely beautiful human being. She had a prodigious presence, and left a lasting impression on every person she met.

Jo was preceded in death by her parents; and her beloved wife, Connie Kirtley.

She is survived by her brother, Jack Hettrick (Karen); niece, Karen Wiegel (Chris); nephew Steve Hettrick (Amalia); two great-nieces; two great-nephews; honorary grandchildren, Shelby and Ian; her long time best friend and caregiver, Janice Levering; special friends and caregivers, Fernando and Juan Escoto, Leigh Toulouse, and Verna Smith; her beloved fur babies, Kiri, Chance, and Chotzi; as well as numerous other people who knew and loved her as family.

Joanne will be deeply missed here on this earth, but never forgotten. Her monumental presence will live on forever in our hearts. A celebration of her life will take place on Sunday, December 3, 2017, at 6pm, at the Social Hall at The Albuquerque Meadows (7112 Pan American Fwy NE), followed by a light supper. Arrangements are being handled by the caring professionals at the Noblin Funeral Service Belen Chapel, 418 W. Reinken Ave., (505)864-4448.
