Sorry to hear of JoElla's passing. Our Moms were first cousins. My mother was Eleanor Lowe Stuart and lived in Centerville. I remember visiting Elaine and family in Brazil for family dinners. My mom and dad and I went to visit JoElla when Jerry was born and I got to hold him. I'm sorry JoElla and I lost touch over the years, but I will always remember her long blonde hair and her braids. You have my sympathy, I know you will miss her.
