Jetta will forever be remembered as a devoted wife and mother, grandmother and great grandmother, always with a twisted sense of humor, and a beautiful spark of selflessness that really stands out with those who were fortunate enough to have crossed paths with Jetta in life. For that Jetta (Mom), all of us want to say thank you, we love you, and you will be forever missed. (Please tell Dad we love him too and we are sure glad that you guys are finally together again).
