Joan was born May 12, 1932, at Hagerman, N.M., to William and Berthyl Graham. She married Hugh Jackson Sept. 2, 1951 at Roswell, N.M. She was a Borger resident since 1951. She loved her kids, grandkids and great-grandkids more than anything else in the world. She would do anything she could for them. She loved to garden and work in her flower beds.
