    Jo was one of the most thoughtful and kind people who I was privileged to share time with. Her inner calm and beauty was uplifting. Jo's gentle spirit added so much to our Bible Study group. She will be greatly missed.

    Lane and Fred Schroeder says:
    I first met Jo while visiting my Middlesex cousins Sue and Rose Manning and witnessed what a dear friend she was to them. In high school I marveled at Jo's skill on the basketball court. She was the best forward and Rose was the best guard.
    I hadn't forgotten Jo and couldn't believe our luck that she was one of our neighbors when we retired to Cypress Landing. We enjoyed getting together with her and her husband Bob. Jo had many friends here who will always cherish her memory and recall how she showed her love for our community by founding the Sunshine Group which provided functions for our more senior residents.

    I remember Jo from the days in the early 60's when my husband, Bill Furr, was pastor of her church in Middlesex while he was a student at Southeastern Seminary. She was such a wonderful person to us and always had a smile. After all these years I still smile when I think of Jo.

    Jo was beyond kind to my family and my children. Moreover, the love she showed to Keely and allowed me to share their time made her that much special. I miss seeing Keely and will miss Jo. My prayers are with you all.

    Julian and Sandra Whitley says:
    Our hearts are very heavy. Our lives were much blessed to have called Jo our dear friend. Such a true Southern Lady. Since first meeting in Cypress Landing, we spent many hours together laughing, eating (especially catfish and ice cream), playing games or just riding around. Heaven has a bright new star and we will miss her dearly. While our daily chats have ended, many cherished memories will remain.

    If I can be half the woman that you were I will be proud of myself. Heaven received an angel and the most selfless person I know I love you and I miss you so much but I am blessed to have you as my grandmother. Until we meet again I know that you and my heavenly father will watch over mom the kids an I.

    Jo has always been special to my family. My twin sister and I would introduce Jo as our niece. We loved the times we spent within Jo and Bob through the years. I will miss you Jo. I know Judy welcomed you to your heavenly home too.

    Lana and Don Hathaway says:
    My husband, Don and I were introduced to each other in 1959 by Jo. For that, we say thank you. We have remained friends through the years, meeting once in a while to eat together, travel, shop or just hang out together. I loved her laughter, her slow southern accent, her sincerity and her desire to do all that she could to make life better for those she loved. Heaven has gained a southern angel and I will miss her. Take to heart her request to do a random act of kindness for someone in need. God bless Jo.
