Josephine Elenor Burge

On February 27, 2019 Jo has been summoned to her higher power to serve in Heaven.

She was born March 16, 1934 to Bennie and Reba Dokes of Indianapolis, Indiana. She was the loving wife of John R. Burge for 65 years, who still survives.

Jo is also survived by two brothers, George E. Dokes and Martin C. Dokes; a sister, Mary Lillian (Dokes) Abbott; five children, Larry Burge, Rick Burge, Ron Burge, Becky (Burge) Rogers, Marci (Burge) Cross; thirteen grandchildren, sixteen great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild.

Jo was a 58 year member of the Order of the Eastern Star, as well as a member and past president of the Ladies Auxiliary of American Legion Post #252 Greenwood, Indiana. Jo retired from State Farm Insurance after being employed for twenty-two years. She was active coaching Lassie League softball and troop leader for the campfire girls. Bowling and fishing were her favorite hobbies. Her most prized enjoyment was her family gatherings.

She was surrounded by her loving family upon her passing and will be missed by all.

The family would like to thank Community South Hospice for their loving care and support through this journey.

A gathering will be held Tuesday, March 5 from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Wilson St. Pierre Funeral Service & Crematory, Greenwood Chapel, 481 W. Main Street, Greenwood, Indiana with an Order of Eastern Star and a Celebration of life service during the gathering.
