Tettis and his wife Tammy of St. Marys; eight grandchildren, Jimmi, Peter, Danielle, Corrinne, Samantha, Vincent, Hayden and Gregory; nine great-grandchildren; and one sister, Beverly MacDonald of Ridgway.

Although I don't think I knew Joe, I did know Doris, so you have my deepest condolences on both of their deaths. I sure liked her; may God bless you and comfort you all.
