September 1, 1938 - May 13, 2021
Jo Ann Douglas Mock, 82, of Charlotte, died on May 13, 2021 at home. Born in Charlotte on Sept 1, 1938, Jo Ann was the only child of Allen and Josephine Todd Douglas. Mom never felt like an only child because she was surrounded by many loving cousins, all willing to take her under their wing, tease her and bring her along to the movies with them! Mom has also been blessed with a close knit circle of friends, several loyally by her side since preschool days. We thank each of you for being Mom’s sisters all of these years. She treasured each of you. Jo Ann’s school years were spent at Thomasboro, Long Creek and North Mecklenburg schools. Being raised up in a different time, many friends from school continued to live in the area and lifelong bonds were formed. She married Ronnie Hutchison and three children came along: Todd, Terri and Amy. Once the children were school aged, she accepted a position as a bank teller and spent the rest of her career days working in that profession, at Sun Bank, DeLeon Springs Bank, Northwestern, First Union, BB&T banks, always watching amused as one bank “ate up the next one”! Jo Ann married a second time, to Roy Mock. Roy had two children from a previous marriage, Cherie Mock Westerfield (Mark) and Tim Mock. Jo Ann and Roy enjoyed living in Florida a number of years before returning to Charlotte, working their way back home after living in DeLeon Springs and Arcadia, FL and Bennettesville and Lancaster, SC . After Roy passed away in 2016, she came home to Charlotte to live with Terri Bunder and husband Bruce, and visited Amy Golden and Darrell often. Jo Ann enjoyed simple pleasures and small town life. She was an avid reader of fiction, finisher of the Sunday crossword puzzle (in pen), and a devoted follower of daytime soaps, once she retired. She and Roy bred Siberian huskies for a number of years, and even welcomed a couple of much-adored cats to the household. She was a life-long Duke Blue Devils basketball fan and watched many Atlanta Braves games, first with Roy, then with Terri and Bruce. Both Jo Ann and Roy enjoyed showing classic cars locally, taking home quite a few trophies. She loved beach trips, Dollywood and country music. Jo Ann never gave up hope that Publishers Clearing House would call on her one day. She always dreamed of buying a big plot of land with her winnings, where all her family could live around her. Five grandchildren were the apples of her eye: Laura and Reuben Hannon (Terri & Larry), and Dustin, Brittany and Seth Hutchison (Todd & Cheryl). She enjoyed attending dance recitals and baseball games when they were young. Also counted among her blessings were step-grandchildren Vickie, Timothy and Randy Mock (Tim & Kim) and Heather and Bonnie Rich (Cherie &Brian). Mom proudly claimed 15 great-grandchildren: Maggie, Kaeden, Elsie and Dusty Hutchison (Dustin & Danielle); Mason, Gracelyn and Nessa Woodall (Brittany & Donnie); Grey Hutchison (Seth & Raven); Beckett and Nora Hannon (Reuben & Jennifer) and Maxwell Brubaker (Laura & David). Joining the ranks are step-great-grandchildren Brandon Lasker (Heather & Jonny) and Bella and Jet Ferguson (Bonnie & Jeremy). Mom was preceded in death by son Todd, great-granddaughter Madelyn Woodall, husbands Ronnie and Roy, and son-in-law Bruce.
