1932-2013

Audra Janice Joiner went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, June 4, 2013, with her children by her side. She was born on April 21, 1932, to Alvin and Maggie Duhman Brower.

Janice had many titles, but was best known as Mom, Granny, Nanny, Me maw, and Great-Gran. A few things her children would say are she was “one of a kind” and she would always say “Can’t never could.” She was as much sassy as she was kind-hearted. Janice was the most amazing chef, loving the opportunity to provide for family and friends who dropped by for a visit throughout her 51 years of marriage with Bo, and then the years on her own.

Early on she did child care to assist in providing and to stay home with her children. She took in washing and ironing from others as well. As Dad developed a drilling and oil field work-over business in Wilson County, Mom did the books and ran parts for the jobs. She never let her lack of formal education hold her back. Parts-finding before computer days was a gift that she excelled at. Her ability to make beautiful items from others’ leftovers never ceased to amaze family and friends. She was a talented seamstress and could crochet anything, leaving treasures for us.

Our lives have been blessed and are better because she was our Mom, Granny, Nanny, Me maw, and Great-Gran.

Audra was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, John Wayne “Bo” Joiner in 1998; and two sons, an infant, Alvin Lee, in 1948, and Alan Kent in 2001.

She is survived by her children, Barbara J. Cowey and husband Albert of Seguin, Texas, Diana K. Blackburn and husband James of Blanco, and Jay W. Joiner and wife Laura of Sutherland Springs; grandchildren Christopher A. Joiner and wife Rose of Schertz, Clifton L. Cowey and wife Sheryl, Darrel W. Cowey and wife Susan of Seguin, Eric A. Cowey and wife Andrea of College Station, Fairah L. Solomon and husband Heath of Arkansas; Melissa D. Blackburn, Max W. Blackburn and wife Renee’ of Blanco, Hannah J. Blackburn of Bryan, Emily R. Blackburn of Temple, and Jennifer L. Joiner, Joshua W. Joiner and wife Casi, Jessica D. Shelton and husband Jaime, Jaelyn N. Joiner, and Jaclyn D. Joiner, all of Sutherland Springs; and 11 great-grandchildren.

A memorial graveside service was held on Thursday, June 6, in the Sutherland Springs Cemetery in Sutherland Springs officiated by Brother Gary Erwin. “Precious Memories” was sung by Keith Johanson. Serving as pallbearers were her grandsons.

Memorial donataions may be given to Hope Church, AGWM No. 2954972, 313 W. Chihuahua, La Vernia, TX 78121 to benefit a granddaughter who will be leaving for the mission field in Kenya in September.
