Joan Jett passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family on Thursday, Oct. 31, 2013.
She was the wife of John Jett for 45 years; mother of Jennifer and Jason Jett; and the grandmother of Nicholas and Julien Liu.
Born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island, Jett moved to the south with John soon after they married and it became her adopted home, though she forever retained a tinge of her New England accent.
The couple lived in Baltimore, MD; Reedville, Va.; Houma, La.; Hammond, La. and most recently Mandeville. Hammond, where they lived for 26 years, was her home. It was there that she started the Shop for Habitat. Jett had been volunteering at the hospital, but she wanted to do more and she knew there were others in the community who felt the same way. So she conceived the idea for the Stop for Habitat, a thrift store which would turn over all earnings to the Ginger Ford Habitat for Humanity.
She is survived by her husband, John; and daughter, Jennifer and her husband, Jason Liu.
She was preceded in death by her son, Jason.
Services will be held in Virginia.
A memorial service will be held in Hammond at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, alzfdn.org, (866) 232-8484.
