We lost our dear sweet loving mother, Mary Jo Eyth, on Dec. 22, 2019 at the age of 99 in Oakdale, CA., where she resided. She was born Mary Jo Cox on Jan. 10, 1920 in Durant, Oklahoma. Mary Jo moved to San Jose, CA where she met her husband, Gale L. Eyth. They married on August 19, 1939 and were married for 27 years until his death. During WWII, her husband received a commission in the US Army and was stationed at Fort Sheridan, ILL. She then moved to Fort Sheridan where they lived for 4 years and had their first child. They returned to San Jose where their second child was born and they raised their family. Mary Jo relocated to Sonora, CA where she opened a sandwich shop. Later she moved to Oakdale, where she had a Deli in the House of Liquor and was known for her Great Egg Salad Sandwiches. She was loved by many. We are so blessed to have had her for so many years.
