Jo Linda Dillon Sturgeon, age 75, of New Boston, Texas, passed away Friday, April 8, 2022, in a Texarkana, Texas hospice center. Jo was born March 11, 1947, in Dallas, Texas. Her loving parents were Dr. John Logan Dillon and Florence Reed McLaughlin Dillon also of Dallas, Texas. Jo was the youngest of five siblings whose names all began with the letter “J” – Jack, Jerry, Jan, Jane and Jo.

Her business, New Boston Beauty Salon was her pride and joy, and was a thriving salon in New Boston and the surrounding areas. Jo retired in 2012 and spent her final years traveling when she could, fishing when she could, taking the occasional trip to the casino, playing her favorite dice game, Farkle, with her best friend Jimmie Case, and visiting her twin boys and her great grandbabies.
