Jo married Dennis A. Youngs in Memphis Tennessee on August 26, 1971. Together they raised two wonderful sons Jeffrey D. Youngs, and Gregory T. Youngs and traveled the world together as an U.S. Air Force family.
Jo proved to be a talented baker, cook, creative metal works artist, and worked as a secretary for a leading advertising firm in Memphis Tennessee, several school districts in the Omaha Nebraska area, the U.S. Army in Kreuzberg Germany, and First Presbyterian Church in Pensacola Florida. But Jo was always quick to acknowledge her greatest accomplishment as creating a loving family.
Jo and Dennis enjoyed 46 years of marriage together. She never lost her love of travel seeing new things, places, and people. Jo was always ready to try new challenges that included several moments of high adventure like scuba diving, snorkeling reefs in the Florida Keys and Cancun Mexico, zip lining, parasailing and driving power boats.
Jo will be missed by friends and family alike. Jo brought a love, dedication, and focus that enriched all of the lives she touched.
