    We loved Johnette so much at Harding Academy in Memphis. She was kind, loving, caring, and full of life! She served the teachers and students there during her years in Memphis. She left an incredible legacy that will be celebrated for many years to come! We loved her husband, Tom, her children, and parents so much. I often think of the fun time we shared together so many years ago! Please accept my heartfelt sympathy in your time of great loss. I wish so much I could have been there for the service. Please know I was there in spirit. I am lifting you ALL up in my daily prayers.

    I will forever remember when Johnette and Tom first met… how it was truly love at first sight… they couldn’t wait to talk to each other during the ‘long distance’ relationship!! They are both the happiest couple we have ever met. Her charming outgoing character will be remembered forever, by friends, children & grandchildren. Love you forever!
