One thought on “Mary Jo Byrd

  1. J.W. Byrd, Rona McNelley, Steve Byrd, and families. So sorry for your loss. There are so many great memories living next door to her since around 1955. I remember her playing softball with us in Walter’s front yard, climbing Green Mountain and many others too numerous to list. The family and community are in our prayers.
