Mrs. Jo Bond House, age 90, died peacefully, surrounded by her family, on September 19, 2016, in Blountstown, FL. She was born in Morrisville, MO, and lived most of her life in Blountstown. Jo taught school, worked as a social worker, and owned an antique shop, The Foxfire. She was a real estate agent as well, and she enjoyed meeting people and welcoming new families to the community.
Jo was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Blountstown, FL. She enjoyed cooking for her family, fishing, traveling, gardening, sewing, shopping, and playing cards. She was a loyal member of her penny ante poker club for over fifty years.
Jo is survived by her loving husband of 69 years, Owen, and their three children: Rebecca (David), Virginia (Dennis), and David (Jackie). She has six grandchildren, and ten great-grandchildren. Jo was a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother, and nothing pleased her more than to be surrounded by her family. One of her greatest pleasures was buying gifts for her family.
