Mary Jo was the devoted wife of Paul D. Lacey, also formerly of Dresden, whom she married September 17, 1966, and the mother of Christina Marie Ibrahim of League City, Texas and Jennifer Lacey Eckstrom of Katy, Texas. She loved nothing more than her grandchildren Kaela Zane, Kara Marie and Mason Davis Ibrahim and Mary Elsie, Paul Edward, Jon Eric, and step-granddaughter Brittany Lynne Eckstrom. Also surviving is her half sister, Shirley Pape of Dresden and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents Mary Jo was preceded in death by a brother Michael Davis; a half brother, Jack Davis and a half sister, Jeannette Meadows.

She loved, respected and thoroughly enjoyed topical discussions with her son-in-laws Mo and Ed. Mary Jo had previously resided in Vienna, Virginia, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and Falls Church, Virginia. She traveled the world with her daughters and husband seeing places like China, Thailand, Japan, Singapore, Europe, and of course, Hawaii. She made friends wherever she went, including a terrific group of friends in Texas. She was a wonderful cook, an avid reader and a great conversationalist. She was a terrific role model and inspiration to many, especially her children and grandchildren.
