Betty Jo Icenhour

Jo was a warm and friendly person who was loved by everyone she knew. She was a very devoted wife and mother, raising two sons with Delmer, her husband of nearly fifty years. She became a Christian as a young adult and was a faithful member of Calvary Baptist Church where she was active until just a few weeks ago. Jo was also known as an excellent cook, who greatly enjoyed cooking for her family and friends as well as her church. She had many interests and pastimes, but her greatest joy in this life was her grandchildren.
