Jo worked as a housecleaner at St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital under she retired at age 70.  She was not a big traveler and preferred to be close to home but no matter where she went, she made the trip unforgettable. Her family was her entire world. Jo, B, Gramma B, GaB, had a way of brightening a room without even saying much. She always enjoyed watching all the commotion unfold around her just as she did while convalescing in her final days.  She had many visitors, phone calls, and FaceTimes during her illness. She was so very loved.

The funeral service will be conducted at Northview Funeral Chapel, 1490 Highbury Avenue North, London, on Friday, November 10th, 2023 at 12:00 p.m. with visitation one hour prior. Interment at Mount Pleasant Cemetery following a time of fellowship after the funeral.
