I grew up with Jo Jean in Waynedale. I also attended Elmhurst and graduated with her. She was one of my best friends during high school. I will remember all the good times we shared, and I will miss her. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Sheri and Terri,
Your mom was an amazing example of single parenting. She was understanding, determined, strong, smart, clever, fun, and loved to handle what ever we dished out. No matter what, she was always one step ahead of us and we never knew it! We were blessed to have Jo Jean in our lives and can not begin to imagine your loss. We're so sorry we are out of town and will not be back to be with you through this. Know how much Jo meant to us, how much we loved her and how sad we are not being there.
All our love, thoughts and prayers.

Terri & Sheri, We were shocked to hear about MoM! She was so concerned and helpful during Phil's health problems and didn't say a word about herself. She was a TRUE LADY, A FRIEND AND A LOVED ONE. We will miss her. But she will always be in our hearts. Our Prays are with you and Gloria during these hard times. JO THANK YOU FOR BEING MY FRIEND AND LETTING ME BE PART OF YOUR LIFE.

Teri and Sherri:
There are no words that can ease your loss, but you have precious memories of a wonderful mother and friend. Your Mom was an inspiration to us all and will be deeply missed.
Rest in peace Jo Jean.
