Mama Jo will be missed by the Woodridge assisted living family, she always walked with me wherever I went in the building, saying, "I'm going with you...I always said, "let's go Mama Jo". She was a sweet lady to all who knew her. May the family find comfort in knowing, she will be missed, she was like a grandma to me.
