Born April 5, 1933, in New Freeport, the daughter of the late Paul and Frances (Ullom) King.


Jo Ann was a Greene County resident her whole life. She graduated from Waynesburg High School in 1950. Jo Ann was a member of Windy Gap Independent Church, Aleppo. She attended the Greene County Vo-Tech to receive her LPN and worked at the Curry Home for 10 years. Jo Ann owned and operated King’s Market in Aleppo, Grims Groceries in New Freeport for 10 years and made and sold candies known as Jo Ann’s Candies from her home, retiring in 1989. Outside of owning her own business, she was employed at GC Murphy, Berkowitz, pajama factory in Waynesburg. She was raised by her grandparents from the age of 6. Jo Ann enjoyed family, sewing, playing the piano and organ, Christmas, talking on the phone, her animals, and spending time with her great grandchildren. She took pride in making all her food from scratch.


Jo Ann is survived by her daughter Becky (Jim) Pettit, of Aleppo; daughter-in-law, Ruth Grim, of New Freeport, stepdaughter, Barbie Moore, of Clarksville; eight grandchildren, Nicole Everly, of Aleppo, Matt (Jennifer) Pettit, of Jefferson, Christopher Pettit, of Washington, Haley (Dr. Ian) Coote, of New Columbia, Amber Grim, of Graysville, Jamie Grim, of Graysville, Nikki Ries, of New Freeport, and Josh (DJ) Mitchell, of Vandergrift; eight great grandchildren, Tyler and Ethan Everly, Danika, Camden, and Ryann Grim, Savannah Allen, and Dakota and Wyatt Conner.

Jo Ann was very resilient, despite the tough circumstances from a very young age. She chose to become a Nurse and with her quick wit and caring heart, she brightened the lives she cared for. Jo Ann raised two exceptional children, Becky and Mark and taught not only them but her entire family and friends that you have to keep moving forward despite your circumstances and God loves us all.


Jo Ann was under the special care of Dr, Matt Burkette, Dr. L.W. DeGarmeaux, and Dr. Kirby.
