Obituary of Jo-Ann Witzell

WITZELL, Jo-Ann Ruth –

Jo-Ann passed away in the arms of her loving and devoted husband Dave and daughter Michelle. Beloved wife of David for 42 years. Loving mother of Michelle Solonik (Doug), Doug and Marissa.  Proud grandmother of Aaron. Dear sister of Linda Reid (Walter), the late Nancy Rodgers (survived by Clair) and Tom Newport. Jo was a wonderful aunt loved by many nieces, nephews and brother and sister-in-laws. Her caring and nurturing ways allowed her to open her heart and home to many foster children, creating life long bonds with many. She was the happiest when her house was full and when she was filling everyone’s tummies. Life will never be the same without our “Jo” in it, but so much richer for the love she shared so willingly. We love you Jo.  Friends will be received at the MCCLEISTER FUNERAL HOME, 495 Park Rd. N., Brantford on Wednesday, July 19, 2017 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. A Celebration of Jo-Ann’s Life will be held in the Chapel at 3:00 p.m. If wished, memorial donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association would be gratefully appreciated.
