Following retirement, Mary Jo and Duane enjoyed traveling, spending winters in Florida, and following NASCAR. She also loved gardening and cooking.
Survivors include her husband, Duane; and children, Stephanie Davis (Tyler) and Stephen Davidson (Sallie). She was Nanny Jo and G-Jo to her four adoring grandchildren, Kaylie Davis, Carson Davis, Brayden Davidson and Brooklynn Davidson. She also leaves friends too many to count.

Remembering Mary Jo’s courageous 12-year battle with breast cancer, memorials are suggested to the American Cancer Society instead of flowers.
