Jo, daughter of Velma Huddleston Mathis and Farrow “Joe Bill” Mathis, was born on March 23, 1932 in Adamsville, Alabama. A lifelong resident of the Birmingham area, she had friends and family from Graysville to Leeds to Pelham. Jo was an excellent mother who devoted her life to her family. She also worked outside the home to help support her family financially for many years, retiring as credit manager at Long-Lewis Hardware in 1994. In addition to her parents, Jo was preceded in death by her devoted husband, Vincent J. Manzella whom she married in 1974. She was also preceded in death by her grandson, Jarrod Robinson.

Outside of family and work, Jo pursued her faith, attending our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church with her husband Vince. After his death, she returned to the Methodist Church for her remaining years. The family wishes to thank Dr. Richard Cox for his many years of excellent care and support, as well as many other professionals at Southview Medical Group. Many thanks also to the wonderful friends and employees at the Gardens of Pelham for their loving care; Lakeview Pelham’s 1st United Methodist Church for their visits, gifts and prayers, as well as the “village” of friends and neighbors that supported Jo and her family during these past few years.
