Joanne Medicus Squires

August 4, 1960 — July 19, 2023

Mansfield, TX

In loving memory of Mrs. Joanne Squires

After battling her sustained illnesses, Joanne Squires died quietly at home on July 19, 2023.

"Jo" was born on August 4, 1960, in New York, New York to Philip Jay and Rose "Davy" Medicus. She lived her entire childhood on Baylor Circle in White Plains, New York and attended White Plains public schools, graduating WPHS in 1978.

Jo attended the University of Maryland, graduating with a B.A. in Sociology in 1982.

Jo married her high school sweetheart, Scott, in April 1984. Two sons, Doug and Danny, followed. Jo was a devoted wife and mother, even as the family moved from New York, to Maryland, to North Carolina, then to New Jersey and finally to Mansfield, Texas.

We remember Joanne as being loving, caring, generous and often very funny. She was also a great listener. When not attending to her human family, Jo was a passionate dog lover. She found time to enjoy painting, participating in a book club, and special needs volunteering at LifePoint and Stepping Stones.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Philip and Rose "Davy" Medicus, and older brother, Steve Medicus.

She is survived by her husband Scott, sons Doug (Kate) and Danny, brother Rob Medicus, and dearest friends Ron and Randi.
