Jo Lynn Remy

d. August 27, 2022

Dublin, Ohio


Jo Lynn Remy, 71, of Dublin, Ohio, passed away on August 27, 2022, surrounded by her family. She was born September 13, 1950, to Darrell and Jean Furniss of Orient, Ohio. Jo graduated in 1968 from Westfall High School and went on to work at Nationwide Insurance for nearly a decade. 

Following several years as a stay-at-home mom raising daughter Marjean and son Wayne, she taught preschool for 3- and 4-year-olds at Mt. Sterling First United Methodist Church. She then went back into the financial services industry, working in banking for more than 20 years. Jo finished her career at Union Savings Bank in Columbus, Ohio. 

An avid reader and crossword puzzle aficionado, she was always the first one to solve any Wheel of Fortune puzzle and had a take-no-prisoners approach to games of Scrabble. She loved to travel, taking trips to France, Ireland, Portugal and spots around the U.S. Those who knew her described Jo as incredibly kind with a great sense of humor. Her laugh will be missed.

Jo is survived by her loving mother, Jean Furniss; daughter, Marjean Remy; son, Wayne Remy; sister, Jerri Furniss; brother-in-law, John Schott; and step-granddaughter, Zoë Adams. She was preceded in death by father, Darrell Furniss; brother, Rick Furniss; and son-in-law, Rob Adams.

Family will welcome friends from 4:00p.m.-7:00p.m. on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2022 at the PORTER-TIDD FUNERAL HOME, 331 West Main Street, Mt. Sterling, OH 43143 (740)-869-2777. Family burial will be observed at Pleasant Cemetery, Mt. Sterling.
