The family moved to Pensacola, FL after Al was discharged from the service and Jo worked as as ward clerk at Baptist Hospital. Wanting to fulfill her dream of being a nurse she went back to school at the age of 50 to earn her degree in nursing and she worked as a nurse until her retirement in 2006. Following the death of her husband she moved to St. Petersburg, FL.
Jo loved to garden, crochet, bake bread, and watch old movies. She was a religious person and was a member of the Sodality at Little Flower in Pensacola.
Josephine will be truly missed and we take comfort in knowing she is reunited with all those who went before her in Heaven
