Jo Ann (Trittipoe) Fellman went to her heavenly home on Wednesday, September 9th, 2020 after a brief stay in home hospice in her assisted living facility who so graciously accommodated us, allowing family to be with her in her final days. She's finally reunited with the love of her life John who has been gone just over 17 years. She is survived by her children, Kris, Eric (Joy) & Greg (Karen) along with 6 grandchildren, Jason, Nathan (Jess), Jonathan, Zakary (Sara), John (Abby), Emily and 9 great grandchildren.
Jo was born on December 8, 1928 to George & Alma Trittipoe in Joliet, Il. She married John Fellman in 1947 and together they raised 3 children. Jo spent most of her adult life living in Minnesota, heavily involved in her church and Christian woman's clubs. She was preceded in death by her parents, her only brother and her husband. At her insistence there will be no viewing or funeral service. She will be buried alongside John at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in a private family ceremony at a later date. Hoff Celebration of Life Center, Goodview, is assisting the family.
"Jo and I were friends for over 40 years. We worked together in ministry, I sang and she spoke for 20 years with Stoneccroft ministries. We wrote a play together entitled \"Five Faces of Love\" which was produced in churches. She wrote the lyrics to two songs on my album of my own compositions. She wrote lyrics to \"Wondering\" and \"Life Abundant and I wrote the music. My husband dick and I shared many wonderful times with Jo and her husband John and they both were 24/7 friends. Jo and I had lots of fun times and visited the sick together and shared Christ with those who were needing him.
We took many mini-vacations together and shared each others lives deeply. She was there when I had my cancer surgeryy in 2006/Jo had 17 major surgeries which caused her much pain and we both suffered with fibromyalgia during our lives. Jo had a great sense of humor and a loving heart and the last few years she faded away from me in relationship due to life\' s changes I will not forget my forever friend and am anxious to see her best self again in heaven. I love you Jo. Your forever friend
