Martha JoAnn Means passed away on February 12, 2020, in Bakersfield, California. She was born on September 27, 1938, in Booneville, Mississippi. JoAnn is survived by her husband of 64 years, Johnny P. Means; son, Johnny P. Means, Jr.; daughters, Tracy Means-Fitts and Sandra Kim Pedroza; grandchildren, Sarah, Bobby, Johnathan, Ryan, Colby, Chase, Colt, Nicole, and Daniell. She was preceded in death by her parents, Harvey and Flora Stokes.

JoAnn worked numerous jobs before she went to work at Occidental Petroleum, where she retired. After retirement, JoAnn and her daughter, Tracy, opened a Hair Salon called New Generation. They sold the salon after about seven years. JoAnn went back to work for Occidental Vintage for a few more years and then retired again.

She was so special and loved everyone. She liked waterskiing, snow skiing, camping, and bowling. She loved her sister and drinking wine when she could. And she loved her husband more than anything, they had been married for 64 years. He was the light of her life along with her children and grandchildren. She loved family and everyone getting together.

Our mom, Nana, and our dad's wife will be missed and never forgotten. We have all our memories and love that we will hold in our hearts till we meet again. We Love you.
