Jo Anne was born on March 6, 1950 in Potsdam NY, a daughter of the late Stuart & Marie (Todd) Barney. She attended local schools and graduated from Ogdensburg Free Academy in 1968. She later married Richard C. Lockwood at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Ogdensburg on Sept 19, 1970.

Jo Anne was an avid QVC and HSN shopper, and enjoyed watching her grandchildren’s sporting events, doing crafts, home renovations with Richard, sewing, camping, trips to Higley Flow and Lake Placid, collecting antiques, decorating for the holiday’s especially Halloween and Christmas, and was an avid NY Yankee fan.

Jo Anne will be missed immensely by her family as she was their “Teacher of Life”. Although the last five years of her life was spent fighting cancer, she won her battle and never lost sight of why she continued the fight.

My deepest sympathy to JoAnne’s family at this sad time. We graduated from OFA together and through the years we would meet somewhere in Ogdensburg and she always had a smile and a hello.
I will be forever grateful for JoAnne’s professional and friendly demeanor at Dr. Yitta’s office as we dealt with difficult medical issues with my father and then my mother. Her kindness will not be forgotten.
