JO ANN (BARTON) MALOY, 80, of Liberty, MO, passed away peacefully on March 27th, 2015, surrounded by family at North Kansas City Hospital. She was born March 9, 1935 in Clarence, MO, and was preceded in death by her husband of 44 years, Walter M. Maloy, and by her parents, Edwin H. and Marjorie E. Barton. Jo Ann is survived by one son, John Del Maloy (Mindy) of Friendswood, TX and grandchildren Jonathan, Alec, Jared, Julia, Madison, Jack and Brice; one daughter, Marjorie Ann Lund (Greg) of Liberty, MO and grandchildren Jennifer and Jamie; sisters Elizabeth Kuhn (Gene) of Gladstone, MO; sister Betty Manselle of Independence, MO; sister Jean Mowery (Cecil) of Clearwater, FL, brother Ed Barton (Anita) of Raymore, MO, and many nephews and nieces. Jo Ann grew up in Kansas City, MO and graduated from Northeast High School in 1953. In the 1950’s and 1960’s, she worked at the Kansas City offices of AT&T as their first female draftsman. Throughout her life, she had an amazing aptitude for all applications of technical design and construction. Jo Ann was a longtime member of the Avondale Methodist Church in North Kansas City. She enjoyed being outdoors, either on the family farm or at home planting and nurturing trees, gardening fresh vegetables, plants and flowers. Jo Ann was also a very talented artist. She shared a great love for music and evenings spent at the Corbin Theater on the town square in Liberty. The family expresses our deep gratitude to the staff of the Oncology Clinic at Liberty Hospital, the staff of the NorthCare Hospice House of North Kansas City Hospital, and especially to Mark DeWolfe, MD, for his medical skill, professional care and personal compassion. There will be a private graveside service at Glenridge Cemetery in Liberty. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations to the Corbin Theater, Attention: Jo Ann Maloy Memorial, PO Box 202, Liberty, MO 64069.
