Jo Ann was like a aunt to me. She was a beautiful lady inside and out. She loved her family, even those of us that weren't blood related. She loved two wild men in her life in Cotton and JD. The stories she could tell I'm sure would make a great movie.

We were so sad to hear about JoAnn. She was such a wonderful lady and we have many great memories of her and J.D.. ...she will be missed.

I became friends with Jo Ann through the Eastern Star. I quickly found that she had a mind of her own and was a hard worker. I always enjoyed talking with Jo Ann and listening to her stories and the history she was so willing to share. Heaven has gained another angel and she will be missed here on earth. My deepest sympathy to her family, Jackie Camargo
