Born Jo Hamilton in the small town of Linden, Texas, Jo fell in love with the man of her dreams, Ross Lanier. Separated only by the war years while Ross served in the US Navy, she aided her country by working at the Red River Arsenal in Texarkana, Texas. Following WWII, Jo and Ross married and began their family. She spent much of her career raising her three children, but later, with her husband, owned and operated two successful businesses. Jo's greatest accomplishments are evident in her devotion to her family and love for her God.
