Memories Timeline


  1. I love you and will miss you so much Aunt JoEllen! You were always kind and loving to everyone. I appreciate all those times you were there, whether it was in Arkansas or Milwaukee. Never seen you upset but maybe once, other than that, you were always smiling and trying to do for someone more than yourself. Forever my Auntie and you will definitely be missed, especially for those Thanksgiving Holidays. I love you so much Aunt JoEllen and tell grandma I said hello and that I love and I miss her so much as well! I wish I could have seen you this one last time before GOD called you back home, but HE make no mistakes and you suffer no more. Rest In Peace and Love! Your Nephew, Bran Bran

  2. Jo was my aunt but since I was raised up with them we were considered to be sisters. We had fun together at home and when she got grown and moved away the memories stayed. When I visited with her in Milwaukee throughout the years, we had much more fun.She was a generous and fun aunt and she loved us. I’m going to miss her but I will cherish those memories forever. I treasure our last conversation that we had because she personally told me that she was getting it right with God. Rest In Peace my sista… I loved you but God loved you best!!!❀️

  3. I remember Aunt Jo used to go for her walks in the mall. She showed me my brother and my cousin how to play cards. She kept us laughing. Nothing like spending the at her house cause you knew she was cooking good in the morning. When she would to Christmas we used sneak in her cookies. My heart is heavy today. She can be at peace now. πŸ’—πŸ’—
