It is with great sadness we leave condolences to JoEllens family. She has been a great friend for many years. We’ve experienced and made a lot of memories that will remain in our hearts forever. She was one of those special people that were sincere, loving, and fun to be around! She will be missed by all that knew her!
Chase Mike and I are so sorry for the lost of your mom.
We would like to extend our condolences to the family. May the support of family and friends be a source of strength and the God of comfort a refuge in your time of sorrow. Thinking of you all.
Oh my goodness, Chase and Danielle – we just heard the news. I am so sorry about the loss of your mom. I have truly enjoyed my talks with her over the last few years and being able to visit across the yard. Please let me know if there is anything you need. Love to you both and your extended family, too.
I knew Jo from the early 70’s. Saw her as was working near her about 4-5 years ago and we met and had a cup of coffee and did some catching up. So am in the area again and thought I’d call- I’m so sad. RIP my dear friend!
