    I’m not sure you remember me but I’m Eldon White’s daughter. My father worked for Carol Waite in the well drilling company. I’m sorry for your loss. I have memories of Jo An as a loving and caring mother. She would come visit and have coffee with my mother Thelma White during a summer stay at the Ceramic Inn. I pray that her family is given comfort and peace and will find healing for their hearts.
