She was born on May 17, 1951 in Navasota, TX, to William and Erna Grube. Joanne was baptized and confirmed at Friedens Church of Washington, Washington, TX. She graduated from Brenham High School in 1969 and went on to earn a bachelor's degree from Sam Houston University in Home Economics. She married her husband Ronnie Floyd, on August 31, 1974 at First Baptist Church, Navasota, TX. The couple had 3 children, Leanne, Christa, and Rodney.
Joanne worked many years at Jack & Jill and Bingham Hill School and taught a computer lab for elementary students at Navasota ISD. She was a devout and loving Christian. She attended services whenever possible. She was a member of Zion Lutheran Church in Anderson, TX and the Lutheran Women's Missionary League. Over the years she was a 4-H leader, member of the Grimes County Poor Boys, Navasota Band Boosters, Roans Prairie Community Center, and a lifetime member of the Grimes County Fair Association where she served as treasurer for many years. She volunteered with the Grimes County Dairy Association to serve ice cream and with the Grimes County Lions Club to make hamburgers and pancakes for the benefit of our community. She also helped raise funds for Relay for Life. She was a soccer mom, baseball mom, band mom, volleyball mom, track mom, and a second mom to so, so many. She was also active in the parent-teacher organizations and associations when her children were young.
She enjoyed meeting and conversing with people everywhere. She never met a person she didn't love. She enjoyed reading, crocheting, scrapbooking, gardening, and playing cards and dominoes. She liked competing in domino tournaments and often placed well enough to take home a trophy.
