After living a rich and fulfilling life, Jo Gonzales passed peacefully on January 8, 2020. Jo was born on February 6, 1931 to Richard and Viola Fernandez and is the oldest of 12 children. She married the love of her life, Richard (Dick) Gonzales, on December 21, 1947. They were blessed with three beautiful children, Ron, Rodger, and Ann. Dick and Jo raised their family in Bridger, where they operated the Bridger Dry Cleaners. Later, they became managers of a CR Anthony clothing store in Bridger, which eventually took them to Forsyth. Dick and Jo retired in Billings to be closer to their family.
There was no question that Jo was sassy and quick-witted. She was also known for her kind heart and being generous to a fault. If she could do something to help you, she would. Jo was an excellent seamstress; she could look at something and recreate it with no pattern. Her artistry and creativity made her well known at Billings craft fairs. Jo was an active member of the Red Hat Society and volunteered for both Alberta Bair Theater and St Vincent Hospital.
Jo is survived by her son Ron (Sheryl), her daughter Ann, 7 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. She is preceded in death by her husband Richard, son Rodger, son-in-law Dwight, and grandson Cory.
Services will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, January 17, 2020 at Grace United Methodist Church with luncheon to follow. Condolences may be shared at

I worked with Jo and Dick at the Forsyth Anthony's store. I was a mere 18 years old and learned a lot about life, love and fun times.
She was an amazing teacher and friend. Thinking of the family at this time.

I'm so sorry to learn of Jo's passing. She was a very good friend of mine while we lived in Bridger all those years ago but had lost contact after we moved to Billings. Please know that I am thinking of you and your families during this most difficult time. It's really hard to say "good-bye" to a mom. I'm in Yuma, AZ for the winter so unable to come to the services. Just know that I'll be thinking of you.

I remember Jo from my time growing up in Bridger. She stands out in my mind for her smile and good humor. My sympathies and my prayers go out to all the family. Sue Temple Riehl
