My deepest sympathy to Jo-Anne's family at this very sad time. She loved Christmas and was a jovial and pleasant individual. I worked with her at Welcomehome and we shared many lovely stories. My sister is lucky to have bought two of her special dolls which we will now treasure. I am sure that she will be a bright star wherever she is. My prayers and thoughts are with her family.

Lisa, Jennifer and families, heartfelt condolences for the loss of your mother. I was very blessed to have worked with her at WHR. She truly was a beautiful woman, with a beautiful soul. She was adored by all and will be sadly missed. She loved her family very much. You were wonderful daughters. Your mom spoke very highly of you two as well as your husbands and especially her grandkids. May she rest in peace. Please find comfort in knowing that we share your grief. Sending love and light. God bless ❤️❤️❤️. With sympathy, Gloria

Sending my deepest condolences to Jennifer and Lisa. Your mom was a delight to know and will be greatly missed. She always had a real zest for life, up for anything, a big heart and infectious laugh. She made us a beautiful Christmas angel for the office, many years ago and we display her every year. How ironic, that Jo is now a Christmas Angel too! May all your memories help as you grieve the loss of your mom. Hugs to you both.
