Jo Ellen Wood née Throgmorton passed away early November 26th, 2019. She is survived by her husband, Roy, who has been a steadfast and supportive guardian and friend to her four children, Matthew, Michael, Taylor and Jared, who all survive her alongside the grandchildren she loved dearly: Brayden, Jase and Bella. Jo Ellen also eagerly anticipated the birth of granddaughter Maya, expected by her son Michael and his wife Danielle this February. Jo Ellen was born in West Frankfort, Illinois to parents Donald Throgmorton and Mary Ellen Throgmorton née Williams, is survived by siblings Kitty, Jerry, Sue Ann, Pam, Vickie and Paula and she was preceded in death by brothers Royce, James and Bobby Jo.
Jo Ellen was a loving grandmother, mother and wife, a devoted friend and sister and while she was a strong woman whose opinions were often no secret, beneath that, she was a kind, smart, giving person. As a young mother she grew up fast and figured life out as she went the best she could. She died too young at 55 but those close to her cherished the time they had with her.
