Joanne “JoJo” Hardeman

Lester Lackey & Sons Funeral Home

Ms. Joanne “JoJo” Hardeman, was born on January 10, 1966, to the late James Lewis Hardeman and Kathryn Julia Hardeman in Newton County Georgia.

She graduated from Newton County High School in 1984. She was employed by Big Lots for twenty-one years where she could be seen bringing a smile to everyone she met.

“JoJo” as many called her was known for her quiet, sweet and very positive personality. If anyone knew Joanne they knew that she loved her family immensely, especially her only child, Demario Nash. She devoted her life until the end caring for her mother, Kathryn and even some of her neighbors.

On May 27, the Lord reached out his arms from heaven, stretched them wide and brought his angel back home. She was preceded in death by her father, Mr. James Lewis Hardeman and brother, Mr. James Edward Hardeman.

She leaves to cherish her memories, her mother, Ms. Kathryn Hardeman; a son, Mr. Demario Nash; sisters, Mr. & Mrs. Jeff (Linda) Ward and Mr. & Mrs. Curtis (Cynthia) Benton; brothers, Mr. & Mrs. Tony (Vivian) Hardeman and Mr. & Mrs. Justin (Calandra) Gotel and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

The death of a loved one is truly heartbreaking, especially when we lose them at a young age. The bible tells us that there is going to be a resurrection - Acts 24:15. What does that thought mean for you and I? It means comfort and hope from God. The scriptures offer encouraging words - 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 Comfort when loved ones die. Hebrews 2:15 Freedom from a morbid fear of death. John 5:28,29 A real hope of being reunited with your dead loved ones.
