Josephine "Jo" Harbold, 89, of Middletown peacefully passed away in the early hours of Saturday, March 21, 2020. She was the daughter of the late Bertha and Hiram Beachler.
She was proceeded in death by her loving husband of 38 years, Chuck, who passed away earlier this year. Also, proceed by her four siblings; Elmer, Romaine, Phyllis, and Oliver.
Jo, or Gram as many may remember her by, was the epitome of a strong woman. She overcame many adversities in her lifetime. She enjoyed playing in the dirt, watching her "programs", drinking the same cup of coffee all day long, and going out to eat. She worked her whole career as a waitress at Kresgie's or Brady's often telling her granddaughters how much she loved it.
She is survived by her two sons, Art "Jake" Coble and his wife Bea of Inman, South Carolina; and Robert "Bob" Coble of Harrisburg, PA. Three granddaughters, April and her husband Brian Weidner of Harrisburg, PA; Kelly, and her husband Chad Coons of Dillsburg, PA; and Leondra Carter of Swansboro, NC; and three great-grandsons, Nathan Coons, and Ashton and Zander Carter.
Private services will be held at family's request. The family would like to thank AseraCare Hospice of Lancaster for your compassion and care. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to AseraCare Hospice Foundation 1410 Oregon Pike, Lancaster, PA 17601. The family has entrusted the Matinchek Funeral Home, 260 E.

Dear Bob and Jake and family, So sorry for your loss. Aunt Jo was such a sweet person. A fond memory of mine was when she worked at Kresge's, she would tell me when I was done shopping to stop by the restaurant where she worked for an ice cream sundae. Looking back, I probably went more for the free ice cream than to shop. I was privileged to get to see your Mom and Dad at Aunt Carrie's service. It brought back happy memories! Love and Best Wishes, Lloyd and Milynda Coble Jr.

We loved having Jo and Chuck for neighbors for many years, you just don't get such nice people living by you like that any more. We enjoyed the yard sales, would just stand around and talk for awhile. They moved but I saw Chuck up at Frey Village when I went up, he always was so friendly and liked to talk..
Rest in peace Jo and Chuck
