Jo Ann Everly, 73, of Owensboro, passed away Monday, June 14, 2021, at her home. Jo Ann was born in Owensboro, a daughter of the late Bernard Lee Everly, Sr. and Isabelle Gaddis Everly. She was a very proud and loyal 1967 graduate of Owensboro High School. Jo Ann was the unofficial memory bank of the OHS Class of '67, with a remarkable ability to recall all of her classmates, who married who, who had been ill, and who had passed away. Her career included her work at what was then Pinkerton Tobacco Company, Whitehall Furniture, and Field Packing Company. Jo Ann was a member of Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
Those left to honor her memory are her sister Margaret Bolin and her husband Jimmy, of Owensboro, and 9 nieces and nephews. She was also preceded in death by her brother, Jimmy Everly; her sisters Dorothy Holt and Mary Sue Newton; and nephews Matt Bolin and Ronnie Clark.
