Dear Nancy, your Mom wrote me the sweetest note of condolence when my husband passed away in 2011. I was married to Michael Alexander, son of Mary and Claude, so your Mom was Michael’s aunt. She told me about Michael finding “pop-beads” and giving them to you, and how much you loved playing with them. I will always treasure the letter from her...I take it out from time to time and read it. What a lovely Mom you had! I look forward to meeting her in Heaven. Sincerely, CJ Alexander

Nancy and Donny so sorry for your Moms passing, but she lived a good life.
We will always remember her as keeping the, the "Old Faithful group together"

Enjoyed my years of doing JoAnn’s hair , and friendship! Her many stories and love of her faith will be my fond memories of Jo Ann! So sorry for your loss!

My thoughts and prayers are with your family. JoAnn and I met when I worked at Fareway and I loved her stories and the history of Hampton. I enjoyed our afternoon teas and always loved her laughter. I invited her to join the city committee of the Historic Preservation Commission and enjoyed her a punk and spirit describing the glory our community was and hoped to one day achieve again. I will greatly miss our conversations and my children will miss delivering her yearly pumpkin. She will be greatly missed and will always hold a special place in my heart.

My deepest sympathies and prayers to your family. I can STILL remember where it all began, with a dinner between the youth group and the Old Faithfuls, and God seated us at the same table and we CLICKED!! From that night I knew I had a friend for life. In a matter of weeks we went from two gals who attended the same church, to a young teen who gained an "In-Church Grandma" She was always making me laugh, encouraging in my walk with the Lord, and keeping me on my toes. A highlight to coming home on weekends was knowing I would get to see her. She always greeted me with a hug and asked me to sit with her for church service. She will be missed.
