I am still in shock at Jo Anne’s passing. She was such a beautiful lady and I loved her like a second mom. I miss her so very much. Love and prayers to her family, who is also family to me!! Rest easy pretty angel!
Jo Anne was the epitome of what is good in this world. She was kind to everyone. We had a special friendship. I loved her dearly and will forever miss her. You were the best friend I could ever ask for. 💔
Nancy Hartsoe and I, MaryJane Carty shocked and saddened by the passing of our dear friend, Jo Anne. We loved Jo Anne, we volunteered with her many, many years at ELCM. She was such joy, and brought happiness to so many. She was such a dedicated person, so willing to help others, she put others first. She will be deeply missed by so many, prayers, comfort and the love of Jesus Christ for her family.
We are dumbfounded by this news. The angels in heaven must be shedding tears for one of their own. JoAnne was absolutely the Hands and Feet of Jesus doing his work as long as I have known her. We are so sorry we did not get to see her again and talk about the Crusaders, cooking for the Wednesday night suppers and making fried apple pies. God bless her sweet family. Much love from us here at Myrtle Beach.
