Obituary for Mrs. Jo Anne Frances Hodge

December 29, 1949 - March 25, 2019
Crestview, Florida | Age 69

Loving Wife and Mother


Mrs. Jo Anne Frances Hodge known as Mommy not just by her children but called that by her loving husband conceded in her battle with cancer at her home in Crestview Florida on Monday, March 25, 2019. Jo Anne Hodge was born to John and Anne Thompson in East Orange New Jersey. Jo Anne graduated from East Orange High School in 1968 and went on to complete business school. A lover of people and a social butterfly Jo Anne worked in retail until she retired. Jo Anne Hodges is survived by her dedicated and loving husband Jan Hodge, five children all living in New Jersey Roseann Reece, Mary Bailey, Hugh Reynolds Jr, Eunice Crouch and Jarrett Hodge; eleven grandchildren Antonia, Marxus, Markell, Shawnise, Shawn, Takia, Melvin, Elisa, Niger, Romello, Kalia; three great grandchildren Melynn, Jayceon and Markell Jr. Jo Anne loved more than anything her family and she found her Boa when she meets Jan Hodge. They were inseparable and could be found at the beach watching the sun come up, fishing (she would not bait her own line), playing tennis (she would not run after the ball) they were a comedy romance and she just loved that. She did not require much just good friends and family and a near by mall where she could shop buying shoes and things that smelled good. Jo Anne loved to cook and loved knowing everyone enjoyed her food. Coming to dinner was a treat for her because her dining table was her hobby of choice. Jo Anne loved working in the church where she was an active and dedicated member. She cherished her role as the President of the Senior Mission. Meeting Jo Anne meant you were taking on a new family member and you didn't even see it coming. Her love was just that big. You were drawn in. Jo Anne was loyal, out spoke and magnetic. And will be missed greatly by her family, friends and even those whom she had only a brief encounter with. Final arrangements entrusted to McKinnie Funeral Home.
