She is survived by her parents, Fred and Kay Mealio; her beloved husband, Jeff Brumfield; children Hannah Ashley and Jonathan Brumfield; siblings, Becky Fowler and Marks Mealio; grandchild Aiden Ashley; and numerous nieces, nephews, and wonderful, cherished friends.

Jo was a treasure! She was a true Christian and she expressed her love for everyone in so many ways. I know the family will miss her, but she deserves this eternal rest. Rest In Peace, Jo.

“Kind” is how I remember Jo, but Her real legacy is a good and faithful servant of God. That was seen in the things she did and how she lived, but the true indicator was what was in her heart! Matthew 5:16 says “Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven.” Until we meet again Jo, may others remember your faithfulness and glorify God because if it!
