Jo Ann (Hagar) Buck was born September 16, 1934 in Carney, Oklahoma to Guy and Cleo (Roe) Hagar.  She passed away July 21, 2023 in Tryon at the age of 88.

Jo played basketball in high school and thought she was pretty good.  She met and married the love of her life at 16 and traveled the world raising her children as a military wife.  She made the best pecan and apple pies ever and enjoyed gardening and working in her yard. 

Always finding the good in everyone, Jo loved caring for others.  While in her 80’s she enjoyed taking care of those at the Senior Center where she enjoyed spending time with friends.  She loved spending time with her friends and family and loved her church family as well.  Jo loved all her nieces and nephews as if they were her own children.  She was a model for her family to be a better person challenging them to want to be and do better as well.  She was the best mom and grandma which has been universally agreed on by her family.

The bible talks about faith, hope, and love – the greatest of those being love.  That was Jo to her core.  She had many wonderful qualities, but her love was felt by all who knew her.

Jo was preceded in death by her parents, Guy and Cleo Hagar; sisters, Barbara Porter and her husband Farish, Mary Lou and her husband Bob Buck; her loving husband of 59 years, Jack Buck; and brother-in-law, Tom Crume.  Survivors include her children, Susie Bates and her husband John of Wellston, Kenny Buck of Tryon; (4) grandchildren, Blane and Karisa Bates of Edmond, Jody Boudreaux of Fort Gibson, Amber and Luis Galindo of Moosup, CT, Shellie Simpson of Wellston; (4) great-grandchildren, Donovan Bates, Salem Haithcock, Giana Grasso, Camilia Galindo; (1) great-great-grandchild, Mateo Haithcock; siblings, Johnny Hagar and his wife Shirley, Dorthy Crume, Bill Hagar; brother-in-law, Johnny Buck; along with other family and friends.

A graveside funeral will be held at 10:00 a.m. Tuesday, July 25, 2023 at the Carney Cemetery.  Arrangements are under the direction of Lehman Funeral Home of Wellston.
