Jo was a fun loving, hard working, loyal and devoted daughter, sister, and friend! She was a 1978 graduate of San Angelo’s Central High School. Her early working position she was employed for POOL Well Service but soon found her calling by following her father’s employment path to Angelo State University roads and grounds. After 30 years there she retired to focus her energy tending countless beautiful San Angelo private home lawns. Jo was dedicated to her client’s as much as they were her. Many clients passed on over the years; each one knowing and appreciating JO’s bond with them.
Jo was loved more and will be missed more the she possibly knew. Two facts are undeniable. The world was a far better place because she was there. It will be much less now that she is not here. We ask everyone to remember her and continue the love she shared.
