My dearest Aunt Jo,
Anyone who knew you would say you were one of kind, loving, caring, always knew what to say. You spoke from the heart and from the most genuine place, would reach out and help others. You would see their light and could make them shine their brightest. You always had a movie, book, or music to recommend with great passion. Your laugh would fill a room and take over the mood. You took pride in your fried green tomatoes and French toast, telling me the secret to a good French toast is vanilla. Every Keanu Reeves movie I watch will always remind me of you. From porch talks to the sweetest sweet tea, thrift store finds and early morning dream talks, I am going to miss you dearly. Forever in my heart you will be. Loving you always, xoxo Amanda

We are so very saddened and in disbelief to find out Jo passed away. She was such a blessing to our family. We met Jo about 3 1/2 years ago and she worked at our house every Friday. Jo was more than just a worker to us, she was also a friend. She would often stay and eat supper with us and sit and talk to my grandma who is 95 years old. Jo was always so kind and compassionate to my grandma and my grandma looked forward to seeing her every Friday. Back in April, my grandma fell and busted her head open. It of course was on a Friday and Jo arrived at our house and could hear my grandma yelling for help. She had been laying on the floor for several hours. Jo jumped the fence and went in our back door and called the ambulance. She held my grandma in her arms until help arrived. We will forever be thankful for Jo for finding my grandma and helping her that day. Jo was so kind hearted and caring. This world would be a better place if there would more people like Jo in it! Friday’s at our house haven’t been the same in six weeks, we miss hearing Jo’s singing and her quirkiness! Rest In Peace Jo. We love and miss you!
Randall, Jennifer, Mackenzie, Mrs. Jones, Jeannie and all the doggies

Back in high school when I was in marching band with Mariah and Hannah, Ms. Wilson would always come to our shows and take pictures. She was so proud when Mariah was chosen as drum major! I also remember hanging out at her house on weekends, chilling upstairs in the green bedroom with True Blood playing on DVD. I would be greeted by her gentle giant bull mastiff (I think his name was Max) who would bestow some drool on me. I know she was a dog lover and wasn't fazed by owning a dog who was bigger than her!

I will also always remember the time Ms. Wilson drove me, Mariah and Noor all the way to South Carolina to see a Black Veil Brides show. We were obsessed with them at the time and she totally indulged us, patiently listening us discuss the wording of the little notes we made to give to the guitarists and staying late to take pictures of us with the band before taking us home. She was definitely the "cool mom" who let us be a little rebellious! Unlike some adults, she empathized with what it was like to be an emo teenager. And she raised two amazing, smart, independent young women. We will miss you, Jo.

I will miss this woman with all my heart. There's been so many times where I thought I'd give her a call, realizing I can't do that anymore. I will miss the snuggles, the movies, the fried green tomatoes. My mom taught me to love unconditionally and not to judge others. I love and miss her. Rest in peace, mom.

Ms Wilson was always outspoken, witty and artistic, She was fond of photography, and always shined a light on her two daughters on their important life moments. She made sure to take pictures on birthday and football games, dances, plays and documented the moments that were essential in our lives. She was always proud of her talented and genius daughters and their many friends, and she supported and accepted all of our many failed high school relationships. I’m praying for the Wilson family and my heart goes out to her daughters during these times. She is an unforgettable, funny, brutally honest woman and I cherish the moments I was able to have with her.

As my best friend’s mother, she was a huge part of my life growing up. She gave me my first birthday party invitation, my first sleepover was at her house, and she even took me to my first corn maze. She took photos of Mariah and I as kids and would share them as we grew, making sure we had memories to last a lifetime. She was a second mom to me and always made me feel like a part of the family. We love and miss you always, Ms. Wilson!! We know you’ll continue to be with us as we grow. May you rest in peace and paradise.

She was the most wonderful and genuine person you would ever meet. I will miss my mom so much. I can’t imagine my life without her. I know she will always be proud of me and I hope I never disappoint her. I love you, Mom.
