There will be a visitation for Billie Jo Monday, October 5 at 10:30 am followed by a funeral service at 11:30 am at the Griffin Leggett Rest Hills Funeral Home in North Little Rock. Attendees are required to wear masks as a safety precaution.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Park Hill Baptist Church in North Little Rock.
