They raised three children : Brad , Eric, and Terry and spent many wonderful years with them in the Bitterroot Valley. She was an active member of Our Savior Lutheran Church and her devotion to the church was surpassed only by that of her family.

Brad, Terry, and Eric, so sorry to see that your mom had passed away. I fondly remember all the time we spent together growing up and I know that our parents stayed close after they all retired. I'm sure they are all in heaven catching up!
Lots of love and hugs to all of you

To all of the Engdahl family,
We will miss Jo's smile and will always remember her as a warm and gentle soul. From eating oysters on Hood canal to digging saphires on the Missouri, she is always in our hearts. Dale & Chriss

My deepest sympathy is with your family. I was lucky enough to become friends with Jo the past few years. She shared many stories, recipes, and a Christmas Spider for my tree. She was truly a beautiful person inside and out. All of my love and prayers to you all during this difficult time.
Love, Sheni Leonard (TLC)
