The bible reads in I Thessalonians 5:18,
"In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
Many lives have been made brighter and more enriched because of Jo Ella. Her legacy of family togetherness, peace and love will live on in the hearts of her loved ones and friends. We give thanks to God, individually and collectively for sending her into our lives.
For Jo Ella, being a daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, friend, aunt, mentor, neighbor, and confidante were all honorable callings. Moreover, she was the true example of perseverance and strength.
Jo Ella Trejo was born into time on April 25, 1960 to William Joe and Joyce Lee Wilson Kesterson in Dequeen, Arkansas.
She gave her life to Christ at an early age. Jo Ella was a graduate of Dierks High School and later attended Henderson State University. She was a member of Caddo Valley Baptist Church.
Jo Ella understood the significance of parental involvement in the education and nurturing of her children. She was active in every aspect of their lives. Jo Ella possessed a friendly spirit and never met a stranger. She made friends across race, gender, and inspired everyone who crossed her path.
Jo Ella had many interest and talents, but most of all she loved her children, grandchildren, family, and friends. But more than that, she loved the Lord, and went home to be with Him on March 20, 2012.
Jo Ella was preceded in death by her parents. She leaves a legacy of love and her memories will be cherished by her three beautiful daughters, Brittany Perez and her fiancé Kelton Dixon of Arkadelphia, AR, Alicia Trejo of Arkadelphia, AR, and Lindsey Trejo of Arkadelphia, AR; four grandchildren, Adelyn Hernandez, Aryana Hernandez, Kingston Dixon and Christian Trejo; two sisters, Rachael Marie Smead and her husband Danny of Daisy, AR and Mary Broyles of Wicks, AR; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousin, and numerous friends.
A graveside memorial service to commemorate her life will be held on Saturday, March 24, 2012 at 4:00 p.m. at Old Liberty Cemetery in Dierks, Arkansas with Rev. James H. Giles, Sr., officiating.
Then shall the dust return to the earth at it was and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. Ecclesiastes 12:7
