Jo Ellen was my classmate from grade school until we graduated in 1958. Last I saw her was at our 50th anniversary. Sad to see her pass but she has left wonderful memories for her family/friends. I always remember how Jo Ellen stole all our boyfriends at the big sixth grade ‘patrol’ dance at Central School. Many memories growing up with Jo Ellen. Sue Junkins
