Jo Ann and Jerry met in Korea when he was in the service.  They didn’t have anything when they met and together, they built a good life together.  They never had an argument except maybe when they were fishing in which they enjoyed doing together.  She was a gentle soul and loved her dog, Buddy and her cats, Lucy and Tiger.  She was a homemaker, had pride in her flowers and was a member of the Woodbury First Baptist Church.
