    Mrs. Jo Ann was such a kind lady. She always had a kind word and when she smiled it was like a ray of sunshine. My heartfelt sympathy for the family. Rest sweet lady!

    Janet & family, May the comfort of God help those left behind during this difficult time. We feel a silence, a sadness and a longing for one more day, touch, and "I love you". We may not understand why Jo Ann is suddenly gone before we were ready to say good-bye, but gradually we will remember not just that she died, but that she lived. Jo Ann touched so many people during her life here on Earth, but left her family and friends with many beautiful memories. She was a very special lady and will be missed but certainly not forgotten. Love you Janet!
