I am so sad to hear about Jo. She was one of the finest people I had the pleasure of working with at Hillcrest and at the school board office. She made everyone feel important and that she would always help with what we needed. Please know that Jo loved her boys and was so proud of you!

I went to RHS with both Charles and Mary Jo. She was in my class and Charles was 2 years ahead of us. She was a beautiful person, both inside and out !! I also went to church with them at Emmanuel. I always marveled at the devotion they had for one another and the Christian life they led. I also attended Emmanuel when Charles' dad was the pastor. What a respected family they were! My heart goes out to each family member as you adjust to this loss in your life.

Jo was one of my favorite people in the whole wide world. Her example taught me so much about how to be a lady, friend, and a woman of virtue. I have so many many memories of time spent together. I will cling to these memories. Praying for all of you...

So sorry to read of the passing of Mary Jo. I remember her from school days in Bernice. She was always a sweet and caring, and very pretty girl. I know she will be missed very much. R I P Mary Jo

Praying our Lord will comfort and give you peace and many fond memories following the physical passing of Jo. Never saw such a devoted couple as she and Charles and know there was great rejoicing in heaven upon her arrival! What a wonderful woman she was and a great influence and help to me.
