Known lovingly as “MeMe Jo Ann” to her family and friends, she was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend.

She was a member of Immanuel Baptist Church and had a strong Christian faith. Mrs. Jo Ann was an avid bowler and served as Women’s League secretary/ treasurer for many years. She was coordinator for the Morgan City High School reunion committee for 10 years.
