Lois Josephine Moss Jones "Jo" CHARLOTTE - Josephine "Jo" Moss Jones passed away April 7, 2014, in her apartment at Sharon Towers, where she had resided since 2003. She was born May 24, 1926, to Lula Jane Henderson Moss and Joseph Lee Moss in Hoffman (Richmond Co.). Jo graduated with honors from Hoffman High School. During her senior year, the family farm was sold to the U.S. Government to build "Camp McCall". The family moved to Pinebluff, only six miles away. It was there that Jo enjoyed taking her nieces and nephews to enjoy their grandparents. By this time, she had moved to Charlotte to join her sisters, Dot, Sue and Anne, for a career in accounting. Her nieces and nephews looked forward to those trips with "Aunt Jo" to visit "Granny and Papa". Jo was anxious to continue her education and enrolled at CPCC. Later, she transferred her credits to Queens College. It was her last career with Cunningham Wholesale Co. that she retired to marry Paul Stewart Jones, retired Secretary of J.A. Jones Construction Co. on July 22, 1972. Paul was an avid tennis player and encouraged Jo to learn the game. They were both life members of Olde Providence Swim and Racquet Club. Unfortunately, Paul developed cancer and predeceased her Jan. 5, 1976. Jo continued playing until her health prevented it. During Jo and Paul's marriage, they were very active in Sharon United Methodist Church. After his death, Jo presented the church with a set of handbells in his memory. She later transferred her membership to Myers Park United Methodist Church, where she remained a member until her death, and was a member of the Wesley Sunday School Class. Jo was very active in the Republican Party. She and her sister, Sue, whom she referred to as "her travel mate", were very privileged as a guest to attend the National Republican Convention in Houston, Texas in August 1992, where George W. Bush was selected for re-election as president. There they had the pleasure of meeting members of the Bush family, the Quayle family and many other dignitaries. Four years later in August 1996 they attended the San Diego Convention when Bob Dole was the selected candidate. They made trips to the White House with the National Republican Women's Club. Jo and Sue both served as president of their local republican women's club (Queen Charlotte). It was Jo's interest in supporting candidates, both local and national, that held her interest as long as her health permitted. She was a busy lady, always challenging a new endeavor. Bridge was also a great interest, and she served as chair and co-chair of the bridge club at Myers Park Country Club for many years, where she was a longtime member. Other leisure times she spent at her condominium in N. Myrtle Beach, S.C., enjoying time with family and friends. She enjoyed many weeks with nieces and nephews, who all looked forward to Myrtle Beach trips with "Aunt Jo", and these trips still remain with them as "special memories with Aunt Jo." As her nephew, Joe Ross stated, "quite frankly, no one could measure up to "Aunt Jo", and she earned and has been honored with "favorite aunt" by the Moss family children for decades. She enjoyed having "spend the night parties" with nieces and nephews in her home, and taking them out to breakfast. Jo loved to travel, and made trips and cruises to Europe and the Caribbean. It was a cruise to Kona, Hawaii where she was invited to a party at the Bay Club Development in Waikoloa Village and purchased a timeshare. Each visit she took her sisters, Dorothy, Sue and Alice to accompany her. Most of all, she enjoyed the challenges of building a new home when Morrocroft was developed. She asked her nephew, Bill Gamble if he would help her make a selection of a lot. It became a weekly visit, with them selecting the plan she most loved and seeing the finish, including his choice of the landscaping. He was always the love of her life, and the feelings were mutual. After ten happy years there, and with the affliction of Alzheimer's, she moved to Independent Living in Sharon Towers, and remained there with excellent care from her caregivers. Queens College was special in her philanthropic support, and also the Foundations of the Carolinas. She was presented with an Honorary Degree from Queens by Dr. Billy Wireman in 1985. In addition to her husband, Paul, Jo was preceded in death by her brothers, Garren, Basil, Hugh, Everett and Joseph Jr.; and sisters, Juanita (Ann), Dorothy, Sallie and Elizabeth. Jo is survived by her sisters, Jane Boyd and Sue Gamble, both of Charlotte, and Alice Foreman (John) of Chester, Va.; her step-son, Russell E. Jones (Leila) of Charlotte; her step-daughter, Marcia Babcock (Scott) of Norwell, Mass. and their children; and many nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank Sharon Towers Wellness Center; Bill Gamble and step-daughter-in-law, Leila Jones; HomeCare of Charlotte; Pat Lookabill; the many caregivers devoted to her care: Marie Miller, Laverne Washington, Christine Washington, Bobbie Stephens, Lois Smith, Gladys Hoover, Dot Sargent, Garrette De Vane, Sarah McCullough and Linda McLemore for the devoted care and dignity given to Jo over her last years; to Lisa Faulkner, her nurse for Hospice & Palliative Care; and Dr. Robert C. Bowen III. A memorial service will be held 11:00 a.m. Friday, April 11th, in the Chapel of Harry & Bryant, 500 Providence Road, Charlotte, with Dr. Julian M. Aldridge, Jr. officiating.
