    I remember your Mother very well-all the picnics, playing cards together and just having family fun. It was a great part of my childhood. Jo was always such a fun person to be around and I know she will be greatly missed. So sorry for your loss.

    She will a live in our hearts forever. She always had such a warm smile and a gracious heart! Everytime we visited her, she had such a welcoming spirit and always concerned about what was going in our lives. Her faith and kindness was such an inspiration to all. She was an amazing person and I feel so blessed that I was given the opportunity to know and love her. She will truly be missed. Prayers for the family that you will feel God’s presence and His love surrounding you. May He give you peace and strength during this grieving time. Just embrace all those memories….they will last forever.

    How Heaven must of rejoiced,when her Lord and. Savior met her face to Face. She was such a delight,you never saw her house in a fright, but I did because I house sat for her when she traveled,. What a maticulious house keeper,, I loved to cook in her well stocked kitchen,. spending much time returning her home to her naturally spick & span state!. She always noticed what I cleaned.
    She loved me in such a gracious, generous kind way, giving so much of herself from engagement clothiers from younkers to a trip to Arizonia( because I was suffering from the debilitated pain of having Rhumatoid Arthritis.. To embroidering jade made gifts. Thank you Jo for the love you gave Thank you dear friend for everything. Until we meet in Gloryxxx ooo Bobbie

    Jo was my very best friend for 90+ years and I will miss her dearly. Even though we were miles away, we stayed in touch and always looked forward to our birthday phone call. (we were born on the same day and year) She will forever be in my heart and I will cherish all the memories from years gone by. I pray that the Lord will comfort you and your family and give you peace and strength during this difficult time.
