She was the widow of Charles Ott, a retired Registered Nurse and a member of Chickasaw Baptist Church in McGehee, AR. Ott, as she was known by her peers, was a very compassionate and skilled nurse. She lovingly cared for the people of Drew County for many years with a servant's heart. However, her favorite title was ''Aunt Jo'', as she was a beloved aunt to many more than her own nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents and husband, she was also preceded in death by a brother, Charles A. Hoover.
Survivors include her sister-in-law, Billie Jean Hoover; her nephew, Chuck Hoover and wife Carolyn and her niece, Jana Edwards and husband Dan all of Monticello; Eddie Young, who she thought of as a son and wife Patty of McGehee; and her great nieces and nephews, Michele Roberts and husband David, Joy Watts and husband Matt, Josh Welch and wife Katelan and Brice Hoover and wife Kelsey all of Monticello; and great-great nieces and nephews, Kaleigh Roberts, Patton Roberts, Preston Welch, Josie Welch and Emersyn Raye Hoover all of Monticello.
Graveside services will be 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, November 30, 2021, at Campground Cemetery in Drew County, AR with Bro. Chuck Hoover officiating. Please visit her guestbook page at www.stephensondearman.com.
