Joann Hancey Crider, affectionately known as “Jo”, of St. George, UT went home to be with the Lord on April 5, 2018.
Jo was born in Mapleton, UT on June 7, 1933 to Timothy E. Marsh and LaPreal Ostler Marsh. Jo graduated from Brigham Young University and became a teacher, her lifelong passion. She married Gene Hancey in December 1963, and was sealed in the LDS temple. Jo taught French, English and Spanish at South High School in Salt Lake City for 30 years, and after retirement from teaching relocated to St. George. Jo continued to teach the French language to anyone who had a heart to learn the language that she loved. Her beloved husband Gene passed in October 1994. She remarried Bill Crider in June 2002 and he passed in March 2006.
Jo is survived by her brothers Wade and John (Melony), and sisters Viva (Marvin) and Birdie.
