For over 20 years in the springtime you could find Jo Ann involved in the Galveston County Fair & Rodeo, and she was involved in numerous other activities, including heading up Senior Citizen’s Day. For many years she impacted the lives of hundreds of teenagers while work-ing with her own children as a coach. She also was a swim in-structor, childcare provider, a den mother in Cub Scouts, and was “Queen Mother” in her chapter of Red Hats. Jo Ann’s greatest joys were her 17 grandchildren. Jo Ann lived in Texas City all of her childhood, moved to Louisiana after getting married, and settled in Santa Fe most of her adult life be-fore moving to Livingston in 2008. She is survived by Glen, her lov-ing husband of 48 years; her broth-er, John DuRee and his wife Mary Lou; brother-in-law, Kenneth Ge-rald and his wife Sue; her uncle, Albert DuRee and his wife Marilyn; her four children, including Mark Gerald and his wife Michelle, Kelli Hardcastle and her husband Lance, Robert Gerald and his wife Brenda and Matt Gerald and his wife Jenifer; 17 grandchildren; one great-grandchild, as well as numer-ous nieces, nephews, and treasured friends.
