She is survived by her nieces, nephews, and great nephews who she just loved dearly. She had special friends, especially Pattie Joy who was her sidekick. She had relatives that she always had good times with. Her favorite saying was Dear God, Put you hand on the Shoulder and one over my mouth.
Jo Allen was known to all as Momma Jo, which her nephew Christopher named her. Sometimes she often wondered if anyone really knew her name. In 1983, she helped form the Hollywood Rescue Squad Auxiliary which she was a member of for 35 years. The Aux. became part of her adopted family and she had so much respect for the Volunteers at the Rescue Squad.
She was employed by C&C Plumbing & Septic, in Hollywood, Maryland for 23 Years, which was started by her parents and owned by her brother, Kevin. She retired on December 31, 2016. Reading, gambling, and putting together flower arrangements were her joy! Her favorite places to go were Ocean City, Vermont, and Nebraska where she would always threaten to move in with her brother Larry.
