I was the best friend of Jayme in grade school. I have the fondest memories of Jo Ann making egg nog and turtles. She was so very kind to me, she was warm and funny. She always made me feel at home. I am better off for having known her.

Jo Ann was married to my 2nd cousin, Clinton Owen (Mickey) McMahan. So interesting and a great find to add to my ancestry history! My Grandmother, Hazel I Shaver Wilson's sister Gladys McMahan was Mickey's mother! Lawrence Welk was my Granny's favorite show. Judy WilsonGoodrich, Texas
