We first met Jo and Hoagy in the early 70’s when Tom was assigned to VA 115 at Whidby Island. Most of us wives were young, somewhat new to the Navy, and a little unsure of how to deal not only with long cruises, but also with our husbands flying combat, Jo gently led us through the months, and we learned to rely on each other and became a cohesive family. I’ll never forget the fun and laughter we shared our get us through the lonely times, Jo was the epitome of a true Southern Lady, and surely the angels are singing with joy even as we mourn.
Our prayers and love to Hoagy and the family.

I got to know Jo beginning in 2008 when I retired from teaching. It was through the Crafty Ladies organization at Highlands Presbyterian Church that I enjoyed Jo's friendship. Whenever I saw her, she truly portrayed that old adage "the cup half full". If I saw Jo, I knew I was going to enjoy sunshine even if the weather outside was awful.

That year, several of us in the group decided to learn how to quilt. Jo, being an accomplished seamstress, taught us much about the art. She also taught us that when in doubt, just plunge in. And Jo's quilt's were always beautiful! As were her knitting projects!

Jo and her quilting buddies always shared their projects and knowledge with those of us who were still learning.

That's what I will always remember about Jo.
Sharing. Jo shared everything.
Jo shared her time, her ideas, her help, her cheerfulness, her delicious food, her hospitality, and . . . her love.

Jo Carmichael was a grand woman and certainly a saint at
Highlands United Presbyterian Church. She was very
active for many years with the Crafty Ladies and the
Fellowship Committee. She was a true "Southern Lady",
and she will be greatly missed!
