Jo Ann was a Christian woman who loved all of her family dearly. She spent many years as a beautician but her favorite job was being a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She and her husband, Bernard, loved to hop in the car at a moment's notice to take off to North Carolina to visit family, who they missed tremendously when they couldn't be with them. In her later years when travel wasn’t so easy she truly enjoyed spending time on the front porch watching the glory of God's creations around her and visiting with dear friends. Jo Ann will be truly missed by all that knew her.
Survivors include son Danny Ferguson and wife Rachel; 3 grandchildren: Hailee Stiger and husband Elbren "Storm".
