Jo was predeceased by her daughter, Hermione Jo Harrison, and her grandson John Rudolph Williams.
One of Jo's greatest joys was being director of the South Side Mother's Day Out program from 1978 – 1994. As a teacher Jo influenced the lives of several hundred young children. Jo was also a member of the IODE, Sir Wilfrid Laurier Chapter for 50 years. Jo loved her garden, flowers, travels and captured nature and life through her artwork.
