List of Appearances

Joann Fielding was the mother of Leroy Jethro Gibbs's deceased wife Shannon Gibbs and the grandmother of Gibbs's daughter Kelly Gibbs.



Joann Fielding approved of the marriage of her daughter, Shannon, to Leroy Jethro Gibbs. However, the two later suffered a falling out over Gibbs's redeployment, which took the family away from her. Gibbs and Fielding reconciled after the death of Shannon and Kelly.

NCIS Season 7Edit

Joann Fielding found out that Joseph Norton, a Navy officer, was smuggling for the Reynosa Cartel. She seduced and murdered him, whispering the names of her now deceased family into his ear as he died. She later tried to mislead the investigation, but Gibbs saw straight through it. With the help of Margaret Allison Hart, Gibbs ensured she would never face charges for her action, and Director Vance tacitly ordered the team to implicate Norton's partner in his murder instead.

Paloma Reynosa mentioned her as a potential victim in her quest for revenge against Gibbs.

NCIS Season 8 Edit

She was implied to be in protective custody to prevent Paloma Reynosa from finding her.
