Jo Anne grew up in Thibodaux, LA and graduated from Thibodaux High School where she went on to attend Nicholls State University.

In her free time, Jo Anne enjoyed spending time with her family, friends, and her beloved dog, Angel. From attending events for her grandchildren, getting away with her host of wonderful girlfriends, gardening and telling her favorite Boudreaux and Thibodeaux jokes, she experienced a lifetime of laughter, love, and joy that will always be cherished.
Jo Anne was a beautiful person with a vivacious personality that was one of a kind. She was respected and admired by countless friends and coworkers for her charm and quick-witted nature, and was a fiercely loyal, straight shooter who will truly be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
