There was no greater woman than Aunt Jo. She had the kindest, most gentle soul. Anyone who met her instantly loved her. She will truly be missed by everyone who knew her. Her and Uncle Chet are together again. She will be forever in our hearts!

Carolyn and the girls!

Moms are very special people. I was fortunate to know this wonderful lady who I often referred to as my "other" mom. She was an amazing lady to admire and was an inspiration to all of us. To me she is not dead...she is just away. I couldn't have loved her more and I know that she wouldn't want us sitting around grieving but rather celebrating the wonderful life she led. Love you forever Mom and miss you.

Edna, I’m so sorry to see this. Over the years I ran into Jo many times and she always beamed with that beautiful smile.

She had a smile that filled up her whole face. The first time I talked to Her, I felt as if I had been friends with her my whole life. She was a little lady with a very kind heart. She came with other members of her family to our home in Verndale to pick pears. She was such a delight. Heartfelt sympathy to all Her friends and family. Her light will shine ever so bright.
