Jo Ann Green, age 66, of Marion and formerly of Columbus, Ohio, died Tuesday, May 1, 2018, at Marion General Hospital following a brief illness.

On August 29, 1951, Jo Ann was born in Columbus, Ohio, the younger of two daughters of the late Raymond and Frances (Lawson) Sims.

Having a huge heart, Jo Ann dedicated her life to caring for her son, Chaz, and sister, Rose.

Two of Jo Ann’s favorite pastimes was listening to and singing to music, and watching YouTube on the computer.

Most important of all to Jo Ann was her family.  She was so proud of her children and grandchildren, and cherished every moment spent with them.  She had a bubbly, fun loving personality that made her a joy to be around.

She will be dearly missed by her two children: Chavalie “Chaz” Green of Marion, and Nicole “Nikki” Green of Marysville; three grandchildren: Isaac, Isaiah, and Ivan Green; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Including her parents, Jo Ann was preceded in death by her sister, Rose Latherns.

Services honoring Jo Ann’s life will be observed privately by her family.
