Condolences for Jo Ann Morse
Jo Ann was always very friendly and nice to work with. She will be missed. Prayers for her and her family.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Jo. She was a great person with such a fun personality. She will be missed at work by all of us.
May God give you all the strength during this difficult time.
I’m so sorry for your loss. I have known JoAnn for a long time. Raeville & Pope John Schools. Prayers for the whole family. Hugs
My thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time. I could always depend on Jo Ann to help me out when I had an accounting question at work. She smiled often, had a contagious laugh, and loved a good joke! Deepest sympathy to all..
Joann and I have worked with each other since you came to the State Patrol 9 years ago. I remember several times we would knock on different doors just like Sheldon did on Big Bang. We would just laugh; we both loved that show and would talk about it. These are the memories I want to hold on too. She was way to young to leave us. I will truly miss, JoAnn. Thoughts and prays go out to her family and close friends. Rest in Peace Joann.
Jo Ann, you were quite a character! When you worked at the Game and Parks Commission, we would spend our lunch time watching All My Children and guess what the next comments would be. Whenever someone ask “how many?” in any conversation, Jo would answer, “oh..3 or 4” just like the cartoon where the guy would get lumps on his head! Yes that cartoon dated us. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends. Ernest, you were her rock. A special prayer is said for you.
To the family of Jo Ann, I am sorry for your loss. Although I did not have the pleasure of personally getting to know her, she was so very helpful to me in my duties to report our electronic deposits into the Patrol. She walked me through the procedure a number of times until I finally got. I also met her a few times when I had to drop the money off at NSP Headquarters Accounting. She was very pleasant and personable. I am since retired, but I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers, and also say a rosary for her on my next holy hour at Blessed Sacrament. She is at peace with our Lord, and watching over us with our beloved Savior
