Text size

Jo Ann Wisner, 63, of Ochlocknee, Georgia, went home to be with the Lord on May 10, 2017 in her home surrounded by loved ones. Born January 30, 1954, Jo Ann was a lifelong Thomas County native who was born into a large farming family in Pavo, Georgia. She worked at Southwestern State Hospital for 18 years and then later worked in the Thomasville City School system where she retired in 2015. Jo Ann was a dedicated mother, loving wife, artist, painter, beekeeper, organic gardener and lover of nature. In her spare time she loved making and selling natural health care products such as soaps, lotion bars and lip balm, many of which contained honey and beeswax from her bees. She is preceded in death by her father, Roy Donald Vick; mother, Lou Alice Caldwell Vick; and brothers, Donny Vick, Louie Vick and Harry Vick. Jo Ann is survived by her loving husband of 25 years, William K. Wisner; sons Jonathan Crawford, Jason Crawford and Garrett Wisner; grandchildren Karma Crawford, Aidan Crawford, Chloe Crawford and Ella Crawford and Caitlin West; and siblings, Stanley Vick, Ted Vick and Elaine Vick Taylor. Memorial services will be held at Allen & Allen Funeral home on Saturday May 13, 2017 from 2 to 4 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life foundation in honor of Jo Ann Wisner. "Last night as I was sleeping, I dreamt marvelous error! that I had a beehive here inside my heart. And the golden bees were making white combs and sweet honey from my old failures." Antonio Machado.
