8 Comments on ““Jo” Jewell Bux”

  1. Phillip Bux Says:

    I loved my mom very much. In my heart, I know she is with Jesus in Heaven.

  2. Brita Bux Says:

    To begin, it is such a blessing that Jo lived a full life into her nineties, and was in such good health until recently. Phillip’s and our son’s hearts are grateful; as is mine.

    As the grandmother to Phillip’s and my three sons, Jo instilled her faith in Jesus, and her love of life. She is already missed.

    For me, as a daughter-in-law, she warmly welcomed me into the Bux family when Phillip and I were first engaged, and then married. That, I am still grateful for, especially, thirty-seven years later.

    More so, without her guidance, my husband may not have walked with the Lord. With her care and concern, Phillip has lived a bountiful spiritual life in Christ for over forty years.

    A person’s heritage and legacy are passed down one generation to another. Jo unrelentingly did just that in her walk with Jesus, in her life as a Christian through her church and society in whole; and lastly, as a parent and grandparent to those in our family.

    As of June 23, 2018, she is now with her three sisters in heaven. I can just see her beloved oldest sister, Beulah Lee, opening her arms to welcome Jo home.

    I, personally, will miss her; and, especially, her laugh. She use to get so tickled over such cute things.

    Lastly, thank you, Jo, for my husband; and through him, our children. My life is full and abundant because you gave another physical life, as well as leading Phillip to the knowledge of life everlasting.

    In closing, a scripture that impacted me upon my return to Jesus in March of 1977, is Philippians 4:8, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Jo Bux, my mother-in-law, who is in heaven, epitomized this verse.

    I remember Jo’s lovely smile and warm greetings on Sunday mornings at Bethany. She loved to wear white and always looked very put together. May her family find peace in knowing she is in her Heavenly home.

  4. David Bux Says:

    I dearly loved my Nana. She cared for everyone around her. When I turned sixteen and started driving, she began sending me checks in the mail to help pay for the gasoline in my car.

    Our most memorable times were the walks we took together. She will be missed by me, my parents, brothers, and many others.

  5. Jonathan Bux Says:

    My Nana was love, and we felt the love that she gave back to us, especially, when we were with her. She was kind and caring to everyone.

    Great memories remain of her taking my younger brother and I to the petting zoo, and to various parks, where we usually had a picnic. Nana showed her love through the time she spent with us.

    Also, I will never forget her laugh. Hearing her laugh always lifted a person’s spirits.

    Lastly, her guidance and love will be missed by me. I always felt her love whenever I was near her, or even talking with her on the telephone. Her footprint on my life will last an eternity.

    She is already missed by me.

  6. David Bux Says:

    I dearly loved my Nana. She cared for everyone around her. When I turned sixteen and got my driver’s license, she began sending checks in the mail to help pay for the gasoline in my car.

    Our most memorable times were our walks together. I miss her already.

  7. Renee Weigel Says:

    I just love Jo Bux! We became friends through her family Phillip and Brita. Later when working at Evergreen Community Jo would come often to visit her sister. We would have such great fellowship.
    Later we kept in touch, going to lunch off and on!
    I will really miss her. God bless her family!

  8. Nicole Brown Says:

    Jo was a dear friend for many years – we had so many fun times and silly adventures inside and outside of work at the Health Department. I was truly blessed to have known her! She was a terrific nurse, and more importantly a terrific faithful person. She will be missed.
