Above all, Jo Betty delighted in her family. She was devoted to her husband of 67 years, Mac, and their children Leanna and Mark. She was adored by her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her greatest joy came from focusing on her family’s wellbeing and cheering on their interests.

Born November 22, 1932, in Dunmore, West Virginia, she was a natural beauty, winning the Miss Pocahontas County pageant in her home state. She attended Marshall University and after raising her children as a homemaker, worked in the advertising department at the Lebanon Democrat.

Jo Betty was a well-loved and active Lebanon resident with a wide circle of friends. She was a proud member of the Birthday Girls, Westland United Methodist Church, and her Bridge Club where she played for fifty years. She was also an avid golf player and member of the Ladies Golf Association.

She was preceded in death by her parents Carlon Montgomery Pritchard and Sophia Victoria Mozulay Pritchard as well as two brothers, Thomas and James Pritchard.

Jo Betty is survived by her husband, E. H. McClintock; two children: Leanna McClintock Bone and Mark Allen McClintock; four grandchildren: Mark Allen McClintock Jr., Anna Lee McClintock, Taylor McClintock (Katie) Baird, and Emily Kate (Zack) Atkins; great grandchildren, Baird Thomas Atkins and Bernard Henry; and brother, George Carlon Pritchard.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Cumberland University.
