  1. What a wonderful lady Jo was! She and my mother were lifelong friends….. we would visit her at the stamp store. Her smile and kindness to everyone were remarkable and led in part to her long life, I am sure. She was always the same Jo everyone loved being around. So honored to have known her.

  2. What a wonderful person Jo was and a friend to many where she lived at Givens Gerber Park. She enjoyed a visit in her apartment after dinner, just to chat and catch up on any news. She was loved and will be missed.

  3. Jo was a long-time, beloved family friend. She was a wonderful woman with a delightful sense of humor. We have always appreciated her long and loving friendship with Margaret and Curtis Hart, my aunt and uncle. Alice and I send our deepest sympathy to the family during this time of sadness.

  4. Jo was a dear friend whom I shall miss. She loved her Church, Abernethy UMC, and all the people of the Church. You will be missed by many. We love you Jo!
