Jo will be remembered for her generous spirit,
huge heart, and passion for animals.
She always referred to raising her only child, Brett, as her greatest accomplishment. Brett was her pride and joy, Jo absolutely loved being a mother.
She loved all holidays, especially Halloween, the 4th of July, and Christmas. Christmas was especially fun for Jo as she loved giving gifts and all of the decorating and treats that came with the season. She also enjoyed taking trips with her late husband to Long Beach, Washington. Jo loved to watch her beloved dogs run around on the beach.
~ She will be dearly missed and never forgotten. ~
