Jo Ann Williams, 82 years of age, of Summersville, WV went to be with the Lord on Sunday, January 7, 2018.
She was the daughter of the late Mangus and Reba Hodge. Preceded in death by her husband, Bill Williams; brothers, Charles and Edwin Hodge; and son, Craig Williams.
She is survived by daughter, Tamie and her husband, Mike Grose of Summersville; daughter-in-law, Jena Williams of FL; two granddaughters, Brittany Williams of OR and Erica Harrison of TN; six grandsons, Michael Grose of AL, Nathan (Kerri) Grose of Summersville, Brandon (Desirae) Grose of Nettie, Preston (Randisas) Grose of Canvas, Nicholas and Lucas Williams of FL; great-granddaughters, Kinley and Kambree Grose of Canvas; and three great-grandsons, Mason and Caden Grose of Nettie, and Holden Grose of Summersville.
Mrs. Williams grew up in Artie, WV tending her chickens and helping in the kitchen, which laid down the makings of a strong woman. Her head was constantly held high in confidence ready to tackle any situation. She had a great passion for taking care of anyone who entered her door. She loved taking care of her grandchildren and teaching them how to work outside on the farm and in the garden. She was up with the sun always managing every aspect of her flower gardens. We could not have asked for a greater influence in our lives.
