Aunt Jo was a dear woman who loved our Uncle Ellis and was devoted to him, as well as to her two sons. She had a ready laugh and a warm smile upon each visit. I'm so grateful for my visit last fall when she met our granddaughter, Raney and shared stories of family; it was a warm visit and a typical caring, focused, loving time together. Many warm memories and happy times will surely bless you, Wes; we hope so. Our sympathy and warm hugs reach out to you and to Uncle Ellis and the entire family. Love, Bonnie and Pat and family

Aunt Jo was the sweetest & most dear person. She always expressed her love, had a sweet word for her family, and was a gentle soul. She always had a twinkle in her eye, and as her niece, appreciated the tiniest thing done for her, and said so. I will always carry the memory of her and her beloved Ellis, and how she loved her boys. Family was everything to her, and although she had a deep faith, she expressed it in her love for others; demonstrated true caring. Our lives are richer because of her. Sending condolences to all her family, with a special thanks to Wesley, who gave her many extra years with his love and devotion and loving care. Our love & hopes you will be comforted by her sweet memory, Dino & Michele Adams Michaels
