Mansfield Garden Club Honors Jo Ivey Moody with Arbor Day Memorial Tree Planting

Nationwide, Arbor Day is observed on April 22, but the Mansfield Garden Club wanted to honor one of their own a little earlier. Long-time member Jo Moody Ivey passed away on February 22, 2020, and club members wanted to plant a tree in her memory at the DeSoto Parish library. The location was perfect since “Mrs. Jo” was both an avid reader and gardener.

Jo, also known as Memaw around Mansfield and Grand Cane, loved to help others and touched the lives of so many with her love of God, family, and the community. You could often find her watering flowers at Mansfield’s planter boxes on Polk Street.
