MATTHEWS, Jo Ann
MATTHEWS - Jo Ann 87, of Alden NY, drew her final breath on January 14, 2018. It was her wish that she remain home. And with the aid of Hospice, her final wish was granted. She rejoined family that had gone before her including her husband Patrick Matthews; her sisters, Heloise and Ruth Ella. Jo Ann was surrounded by family and love in her final days. She moved from Texas to Western New York with her youngest daughter in 2000. She took joy in the simpler things in life. She is survived by her 2 daughters: RoxAnn (Michael) Mulkerin and Patty Jo (James) Burkard; 4 grandchildren: Julie Mulkerin, Robert (Amy) Burkard, Janet (Salvatore) Forzisi and Chris Mulkerin; 2 great-grandchildren: Nicole Burkard and Danielle Burkard. Jo Ann donated her body to the UB Medical Anatomical Gift Program. There will be no funeral services. A Memorial Service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please make any donations to Hospice of Buffalo in her name.
