In memory of
Edna Jo Chapman
CHAPMAN, Edna Jo Edna Jo Chapman of Dallas passed away peacefully on January 11, 2021 after a long and well lived life. Our beloved "Jojo" was born the youngest of seven children to Ira L. and Willie T. Allen on June 14, 1925. Her family attended the First Baptist Church in Garland, Texas where she was baptized in 1937. Known to her friends as "Bo", she attended Garland High School and graduated from North Texas State Teachers College (now the University of North Texas) in 1947, where she was vice president of her class. On May 22, 1948 she married Patton Gayle Chapman. She is survived by their two sons - Patton Chastain Chapman (wife Carol) and Bret Allen Chapman (wife Alison), five grandchildren-Kate Huey (husband Neel), Pete Chapman (wife Elizabeth), Carson Chapman, Rebecca Chapman and Samuel Chapman, and six great grandchildren-Patton, May Marie, Luke, Parker, Bailey and Jack. She is preceded in death by siblings Chloe Monroe, Bessie Lou Tucker, Ray Allen, Tinsley Allen, Jeanne Holley, and Ira Dell Jacobsen, as well as her mother, father, and husband.Throughout her 95 years, Jojo had the gift of a sharp mind, a quick wit, and great wisdom. Family was paramount in her life and she devoted herself to those around her. She was an avid reader, poem writer, and puzzle player. With the greenest of thumbs, she loved visits on her porch surrounded by her beautiful flowers and garden. She was blessed with a teacher's heart - the time, love, and fun she gave to her grandchildren is immeasurable. Jo also leaves behind the many dear friends she made at St. Michael's School in Dallas where she was on staff for 19 years. To her dear Lily, a friend and support for countless years, you are so loved. In addition, we extend a sincere thank you to the staff at C.C. Young for caring for her so well. She was quite simply the best mother, grandmother, and great grandmother any of us could have ever hoped for. Her faith was unwavering, and there is great comfort knowing she is resting in the arms of her Lord. Due to restrictions related to COVID-19, there will be a private service for the immediate family on January 14, 2021 at Sparkman Hillcrest.
