Marie, my sympathies to you and your family. Grew up knowing Jo (and you!) when she and mom worked at Carter’s Drug Store. She was always such a sweet, kind lady. I was so glad to get to see her again in 2000 when she visited the funeral home for Dwight’s mother. She will be missed by all who knew her and who were touched by her kindness.
I never knew a nicer lady. She will be missed by all in her friendship. May God bless you – her family.
I never knew a sweeter, gentle lady. She made everyone feel special. My sympathy to the family. She will be missed.
What a wonderful lady!! Always loved you, Ms. Jo, and appreciated your sweet, gentle manner. You were a true friend to the “Brooks Family” and will be missed.
Rest in Peace,
Carolyn and Family
Ms. Jo was so loved by everyone who came into contact with her. She was a constant at Carter’s and it Seemed so strange to go into Carter’s and not see Ms Jo after she retired.
