Yes... It was very sad news indeed. I did have the pleasure of meeting Jo in person... She was a lot of fun and had a delightful smile. We'll miss you Jo.

Re: Sad news - RIP Jo Evans (JustjoGA)

I am truly going to miss hearing from Jo. She was always so caring and concerned about those around her. Truly she will be missed by so many of us...

I am sure that Jo found at this site a place where she could be accepted and could join with fellow artists and work towards becoming the better artist she always wanted to be. The bunkhouse was another home within a home and these are the places that gave her such pleasure.

A poem of hers:



An artsy bunch, my friends they are
Through thick and thin, they're up to par
When one of us has grief or pain
They're here for us again, again.

The love and caring that they share
Why I deserve it, I know not where
I only know my journey's race
is easier BECAUSE I LOVE THIS PLACE!!
___________
Jo Evans



Maybe there is some comfort in knowing that we won’t need wings now. For I am sure that when it’s our time, Jo will be up there with that ROPE (my Rope!) ready to haul us all up to join her.


Very sad news, I will miss her and her teasing.

Re: Sad news - RIP Jo Evans (JustjoGA)

I am sorry to hear this.

I don't lurk through WetCanvas as much as I once did. But I remember Jo. She lived in my neck of the woods, sort of, I think. Commerce, Ga? in that area, correct?

Yes, just down the road from Helen, GA. So hard to believe she's gone.

Re: Sad news - RIP Jo Evans (JustjoGA)

In another context, Jo and I were particular friends, and I shall miss her dreadfully. My prayer is that she will soon be enjoying being the artist she always wanted to be.

A poet said . . .

Friendship is a simple story.

And so it is . . .

Rest in Peace, Jo-Belle

Re: Sad news - RIP Jo Evans (JustjoGA)

I had noticed not seeing her on the forums as much but I didn't realize she was ill. She gave me a few words of encouragement over the years - so sorry to hear of her passing. My condolences to her family.

Re: Sad news - RIP Jo Evans (JustjoGA)

I haven't been around much over the past couple of years, but remember all the fun we had with the ACEO Challenges.. She is a very special lady, and this is such sad news to be reading. My thoughts are with her family & all her friends

Re: Sad news - RIP Jo Evans (JustjoGA)

I've added Jo's name and tribute to the Wet Canvas Garden of Memories thread called A Place to Remember Our WC! Friends. I've included a link to this thread and some of her art work.

You can see it here, just scroll down through the thread.
