Obituary of Jo Trahan
Jo Ann Trahan, age 80, passed away Saturday May 5, 2018. She was born to Troy Crawford and Pauline Foster Crawford on September 22, 1937 in Cherokee County, Texas.
Jo Ann was a devoted wife of over 50 years and loving mother and grandmother. Taking care of her family was her calling in life. Although she was a simple woman, she took advantage of God’s surroundings.
She loved the outdoors. Gardening and mowing the grass were some of her favorite activities. She loved spending time with her son, Bill, where many memories were made fishing at the lake. Jo Ann was a great cook, turning the fish she caught into delicious meals. She had a feisty side and would stand her ground when she wanted to make a point. She will be greatly missed by her family and all who knew her. Her legacy will continue.
