Jo Ann Loved Christmas

Hi everyone,

Jo Ann loved Christmas. I remember as a child Jo Ann always tried to make Christmas a special time for all of us.

On Christmas Eve after everyone went to bed she would get up and put some special gifts under the tree so we would be surprised the next morning.

She loved to decorate the house inside and out. Spending several hours making sure everything was just right.

Of course the main reason she loved Christmas was because it’s Jesus’s birthday!  Jo Ann would make a cake or purchase a cake then write the words Happy Birthday Jesus on the cake.

So remember to celebrate His birthday in a special way!

As you can imagine my family and I are missing Mom and Jo Ann this year, but we never want to forget to thank God for sending his Son.

Give your loved ones an extra hug this year. You never know when God may call them home.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Donna Snapp

My Dear Sister Jo Ann Snapp Went To Be With Jesus on November 29, 2013

Jo's pic 92513Jo Ann Snapp, 65, went to be with Jesus on Nov. 29 after suffering a massive heart attack at her home. Six years ago Jo Ann moved back to Arkansas from Ojai, Calif., and made her home in Mountain View.

Jo Ann was the second of nine children born to Margaret E. (Rains) Snapp and Molon B. Snapp, both deceased. Jo Ann, along with sisters Norma Jean and Carolyn Mae, was born in Arkansas. In the fifties, her family moved to Michigan City, Ind., where Connie Sue, Barnet Molon, Don Wayne, Donna Lee, Debra Lynn (deceased) and Tammy Lynn were born. She moved to California in the seventies. She was a beloved Auntie to eleven nieces and nephews, and Great Auntie to twenty-two great nieces and nephews.

Jo Ann had a long career in retail and logistics. In retirement she became an author of fiction publishing 11 books. She was working on a twelfth book at the time of her death. Jo Ann’s love of writing started at the age of nine when she wrote her first long story. She used her gift of writing to teach others about the Lord, whom she loved with all her heart. She dedicated her life to serving Jesus and her adult life to caring for others.

Jo Ann became the first in her family to earn a college degree after dedicating herself to taking one class a semester for nine years while working full-time. She earned an Associates of Science degree in Business from Ventura College in 1993.

As a memorial, please tell Jesus you love Him every morning and at night and if you don’t know Jesus as your Savior, please seek Him out. As Jo Ann’s Momma always said, it sure is peaceful to know where you’re going when you draw your last breath.

Please keep me and my family in your prayers. We miss Jo Ann greatly, but we know we will see her again in Heaven.

I will continue to maintain Jo Ann’s website.

I have lost a precious sister, Heaven has gained a precious jewel.
