Jo Lynn Drane Causey

Ms. Jo Lynn Drane Causey, 59, was born in Ferriday, on February 1, 1961 to the union of Judson Lee Drane and Wanda Eloise Robertson Drane, and passed from this life into her heavenly home on May 8, 2020 in Wisner.

Jo Lynn lived for moments with her grand-babies at the ball fields. She loved to dance, talk about Jesus, laugh, and make memories. She had a contagious smile that would light up any room. Jo Lynn was known as THE ball park Nonnie.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Judson and Wanda Drane; brothers, Howard Gerard “Bubba” Drane, Johnny Van Drane, and Judson Lee “Little Pug” Drane, Jr.; sister, Priscilla Ann “Sookie” Drane and special angel, Joe Stanley Graves III.

Jo Lynn will be deeply missed by her daughters, Sierra Deneen Causey King of Wisner, Ashley Shianne Drane Graves of Wisner, and Tomika Nichole Drane of Ferriday; grandkids, Jonathan Blake Graves, Kaleb Scott Graves, Ashlynn Nichole Drane, Madison Mackenzie Smith, Caedyn Bryce Causey, and Brantley LaShea Causey; her fiancé, Edward Joe Marquez, Jr., who was the “Love of Her Life”; brother, Judson Lee Drane, Jr. and wife Dianna of Kenosha, WI; son-in-law, Jonathan Scott Graves of Wisner; special sister-in-law, Norma Montgomery; special friends, Paula and Joe Graves, Mary and Teressa Beaube, and many more. She is also survived by a host of nieces, nephews, special cousins, family, and friends.

Honorary pallbearers will be Blake Graves, Kaleb Graves, Caedyn Bryce Causey, Brantley Causey, Scott Graves, Matt Ferrington, and Roger Horton.

Her girls, grand-babies, and the love of her life were her whole entire world. She was her grand-babies’ biggest fan! And, as Moma would always say: “I don’t even like y’all, I only like y’alls kids.”

The family will gather for a special memorial service to honor the life of Ms. Jo Lynn Causey at a later date.

Young's Community Memorial Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
