Memorial Service & Celebration
of the Life of Jo Brock

A brief reception will follow the service to salute Family and Love.


Born in Freeport, TX, on February 27, 1951, Joyce Elaine Parker was the daughter of James C. Parker and Mary Howell Renshaw.  We had all come to know her well as Jo Brock of Roan Mountain, TN, who passed on June 26, 2012 at the age of 61.  Biological mother to surviving children Robert James Alva Brock and Veronica Toys Brock, Jo tirelessly assumed the role of mother, caretaker and advisor to everyone she met.  Stunned at the situation surrounding her passing, we are taking solace in that she is now finally able to rest in peace.

In addition to Veronica & son-in-law Damon Steele of Richmond, VA, as well as Robert, daughter-in-law Codi Taylor Brock & her only grand-daughter Sydnie Hellane Brock of Elizabethton, TN, Jo is also survived by her former spouse, Thomas Van Brock of Newland, NC; her sisters and their husbands Ceci & John Mayberry of Pigeon Forge, TN, Carol & Larry Maechler of Mena, AR, as well as Bonnie & Jack McPeck of Spokane, WA.  Jo has gone to meet her maker along with her parents mother Mary Howell of Gatlinburg, TN, father & step-mother James & Isabell Parker of San Antonio, TX, as well as her sister Marty Farwell of Austin, TX. 

As much of Jo’s life was devoted to the livelihood of plants, any consideration for flowers would be most appreciated in the form of live plants, rather than cut arrangements.  We feel that she would want us all not to consider her bereft of breath, rather as continuing to elevate the daisies.  Always very fond of the most vibrant, deep, and intense shades of purple, Jo would appreciate this living beauty.

Details of services are in progress.  A public announcement will be made though Memorial Funeral Chapel.  They are accepting donations for the final expenses.   Although Jo has “shuffled off this mortal coil”… “Rejoice, rejoice, we have no choice but to carry on.”  The family would like to express its deepest appreciation for all considerations, condolences, and concerns.

“No matter where you go… there you are.”
