Aletha, was known as Grandma Jo to her grandchildren Aubrey and Kelsey Baker. She loved cooking, crafts, scrapbooking and decorating for the Christmas holiday. She enjoyed many traditions with her family and hosted many gatherings over the years. Aletha traveled to visit her family whenever she could. She loved her visits to Scotland and walks along the River Dee with her grandchildren.
