She was preceded in death by her parents Ester and Carl Sheets; her sister Clara Jean and her grandson Adam (Sherry). JoAnn was born on February 7, 1940 in Blanchester, Ohio to Carl and Ester Sheets. She was previously married for 21 years (James McDermott) and raised 5 children. After raising her children, she moved to Killeen, Texas where she met her husband Jack McDonald.

She is survived by her faithful and loving husband Jack McDonald of 34 years, his son Terry (Jamie) her sister Peggy (Louie) and Brother’s Herschel (Bonnie) and Roger (Maggie) and her 5 children Debra (Donnie), Sherry, Donna (David), Jodi (Bill) and David (Cyndi); her grandchildren Sean, Anthony, Brittany, Sabrina, Sydney, Joe, Alison, Anna, Noah, Emily, Mary, Nellie, Reed, Ridge, Jayden and her great grandchildren; Trinity, Aiden, Ahren, Mason, Leighton, Lydianna, Reece and Oliver.
