Jo Ann Myers Knowles, 59, of Green Cove Springs, FL passed away Sunday, May 23, 2021.  Jo Ann was born in Jacksonville, FL to the late James C. Myers and Florence Sparkman Myers.  She moved to Clay County in 1978 from Jacksonville.  Jo Ann was a loyal employee and spent her entire 43 year career with Aetna as a supervisor.  Boone, North Carolina and San Antonio, Texas were two of Jo Ann’s favorite places to visit.  Christmas was her favorite time of the year and always celebrated in a big way.  She believed in the magic of Christmas and enjoyed showing that to her grandchildren.  She was a loving wife, mom and Gigi.  Spending time with her grandchildren was one of her most favorite things to do.  And she loved to do what they were doing – riding bikes, playing games or swimming in the pool.

Jo Ann was preceded in death by her parents.  She is survived by her husband of 18 years, Charles “Danny” Arnold; two sons, Justin Knowles (Lyndie) and Josh Knowles (Kelly); one daughter, Amanda Tierney (Matthew); two step-daughters, Ashley Collins (Jason) and Megan Arnold; one brother, James C.
