Jo Anne Gregg, 79, of Belhaven, passed away November 4, 2020.
Jo Anne was born in Pitt County to the late Merwin and Mary Hargett Gregg
She is survived by two brothers and one sister: Larry Gregg of Kitzmiller, MD, Ronald Gregg of Jacksonville, NC, and Kathy Gregg of Aurora, CO.
Jo Anne led a challenging life from a young age. She contracted scarlet fever as a young child, which developed into Autism Spectrum Disorder, an often misdiagnosed and misunderstood disorder at that time. Yet, despite her many personal challenges, she was always a hard worker and one of the sweetest people anyone will ever meet. She did not know a stranger and would do whatever she could to help anyone she could. She enjoyed reading and needlework in her spare time and spent many years caring for her parents in their declining years. If there has ever been an angel walking among us, it was Jo Anne.
The family has decided not to hold a memorial service at this time.

Until we meet again, Jo Anne, have fun soaring among the stars. We love you.
