Jo Ann Polly Marinelli

January 3, 1946 – January 6, 2021


Jo Ann Polly Marinelli, 75, of Boerne, Texas, passed away on January 6, 2021, in San Antonio, Texas. Jo Ann was born on January 3, 1946, to Rose Eleanor Geisen and Jack Robert Polly. Jo Ann is survived by brother Robert Charles Polly, sister Betty Sue Polly Travis and special cousin Nancy Sweeten Hughes, as well as her daughters, Deborah Ann Bowen, Denise Sue Janes and son-in-law Preston Janes, Donna Jean Carroll and son-in-law Jim Carroll III and Sarah Elisabeth Ramirez and son-in-law Roman Ramirez; and her son, Galliano Rosario (JR) Marinelli and daughter-in-law Amy Marinelli.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Jack and Rose Polly; brothers James Leroy and John William Polly; sister Rosemary Polly Iles; and newborn twin granddaughters, Purple and Flowers Marinelli.

Jo Ann worked for a retail chain for 20 years, starting as a bookkeeper, then auditor, and leaving as an operations manager. She then worked as an accountant for a commercial property management company and left as a property manager. After retiring, her love for children and cooking brought her to work in the food service department for Boerne ISD. 

Jo Ann volunteered in the kitchen at Bulverde United Methodist Church, and after moving back to Boerne she volunteered at First United Methodist Church. She was also a hospitality coordinator for First United Methodist Church in Boerne.

For the safety of those she loved dearly, services will be held at a later date. For now, friends are invited to share a memory in the online guestbook attached to the obituary page at
