Dearest JoAnne and Gary: I loved your whole family and your mom was a dear and special lady with such class and beauty. They do not “make them like her anymore” and we can be so very proud of how our parents raised us to be. I know you have lived up to the expectations and the legacy she had for you Jo. She is in the arms of the angels and all who loved her…one day we will all be together again and live in comfort knowing that when it is our time, they will “all” be there with open arms to welcome us. Prayers always!

Love, MaryJoZacchini&Steve Kurko

I have known Jessie for many years. I knew her when they had Frys Store and from the FUMC. She was a wonderful lady and always had a beautiful smile on her face. It was a pleasure to have known her and I am sending prayers of peace and love to the entire family.
