Jocelyn Elizabeth "Jo" Fisher Horton


Jocelyn Elizabeth "Jo" Fisher Horton

After five long years of battling cancer, we regret to announce the passing of Jocelyn Elizabeth "Jo" Fisher Horton, 69 years, of Halfway River, Cumb. Co., on Wednesday, February 10, 2021 in Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre.

Born in Springhill, she was a daughter of the late Joseph and Reta (Penney) Spence.She loved spending time with her family, and of course her dogs. She loved her farm-house home, always tweaking it to keep it vintage. When not busy at home, she loved spending time outdoors, especially bass fishing with her husband. A crafty lady, she enjoyed painting, and was well known for her homemade "Jo's Soap". Nothing warmed her heart more than listening to her two boys strum their guitars and singing a tune around the kitchen table.

She will be dearly missed by her husband Allan Horton, Halfway River; children, Michael (Amber) Fisher, Halfway River and Bruce (Natasha) Fisher, Southampton, NS, Larry Horton, Calgary, AB, Lori Horton, Amherst, NS and Joey (Jennifer) Horton, Amherst, NS; 10 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren; siblings, Donnie (Helen), Truro, NS, Brian (Joan), Fenwick, NS, Beverly (Victor Lawson)Dale, Fenwick, NS, Carol Farrell, Amherst, NS, Larry (Mary "Bugs"), Oshawa, ON, Dave (Gail), Bowmanville, ON, Lois (Charles) Davison, Halfway River, NS; as well as many close nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her first husband Sid in 1993; siblings John "Jack", Kenneth "Bob", and Betty Storey.

Arrangements are under the care and supervision of A H Brown Funeral Home, 5 McFarlane Street, Springhill, NS (902-597-2361).
