To their union, two sons were born, Timothy and Gary. In 1972, Leo and Jo purchased property south of Wright City, MO, and in 1979 they moved their family there permanently. Jo devoted her time to raising her two sons and later to watching over her grandchildren. She loved it most when the family was all together. She enjoyed traveling and seeing the world. She was an avid quilter and loved playing bingo. Jo was an excellent cook and was known for making and decorating wedding cakes for her family members and friends over the years.
