When she was 17 she worked as a carhop at Calls Drive-in in Perry, Utah.  She met her future husband at that time.  Although she got engaged very young her father would not allow her to get married until her husband had a real job.

She married S. Wayne Butler on August 22, 1958. They had four children together and raised their family in the 4th ward in Brigham City. She was active in the LDS church and community. As part of the Ladies Community Club,  JoAnn brought toy trains and planes to John Adams Park which many children enjoyed playing on over the years.

On June 4, 1988, she married Ray Ith and had a wonderful life with him.  They enjoyed traveling the world and visiting family all over the country. He was a spectacular grandfather to her grandchildren and always made sure they felt included.
