Jojo was born on the first day of summer, June 21, 1989, at Medcenter One in Bismarck, ND, to Gail Uses Arrow and the late Kenny Eagle, Jr. She was raised in Cannon Ball and Bismarck, ND. She attended school at Cannon Ball, Pierre, Standing Rock, Solen, and Riverside Indian School in Anadarko, Oklahoma.
Jojo lived her life to the fullest. She had such a beautiful spirit about her. She always made you feel special. She loved to paint, draw, write poems and just doodle. She was all of her sibling’s biggest supporter, not to mention her many nieces and nephews. She had many friends near and far and she loved them like they were family. She always had a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen for each and every one of them.
Jojo was a big Chicago Bulls fan only because of Derrick Rose. Since his injury she jumped on the wagon with her brother, Keetan, and cheered on Stephen Curry with the Golden State Warriors. She was a big fan of sports. She played basketball for the Dakota Oyate Eagles and was a cheerleader for the Riverside Indian Braves. She would always make bets with her siblings. Her NFL team was her dad’s team, the Minnesota Vikings. Jojo especially loved watching her many siblings play basketball. She also loved fishing, cooking, and weirdly as it sounds, she loved doing laundry, who loves doing laundry? LOL….She went through this faze where she was smelling all kinds of laundry detergent and would be in the laundry aisle at Walmart for at least 20 minutes. Most of all she loved being auntie.
Jobeth is survived by her mother, Gail Marie Uses Arrow; two sisters, Kendra Ruthie Eagle and Miranda Eagle; 11 brothers, Seth, Kendrick, Keenan, Keegan, Keean, Keetan, Kenyan Eagle, Kirk Hollow, Brent Murray, Shaun Standing Bear, and and Kenneth Paulson; nieces and nephews, Kaisyn, Kendon, Laken, Amias, Uriah, Braylen, Sophia, Laynee, Amelia, Aubri, Keniah, Iziayah, DeLeyza, and Emmi Jo.
