Jo was known as the “Cake Lady” of Jonesboro, Louisiana. If there was a need for a cake, she was the one to call on. She was a devoted member of Antioch Cumberland Presbyterian Church at Quitman, Louisiana and served her congregation and community selflessly. Jo loved God, and her faith was present in everything she did. She enjoyed working outside and took great pride in her garden, often using her home-grown herbs to prepare meals for her family.
