She then worked for 25 years at the National Bank of Bossier where she worked her way up to Vice President of the bank. Mary Jo, or Jodi as her husband called her, was married to Sam Arrington for 54 years before he passed away. Mary Jo’s children and grandchildren were her greatest joy and she cherished them deeply. She will be missed by all those who knew and loved her.
