The daughter of George W. Kerr and Netta Evans, Jo spent much of her early life in Pullman, Washington, where her father was an ordained Baptist preacher. She attended Washington State University and in 1939 moved to Portland, where she began a career in state and federal government, finally retiring as executive assistant to the director of the Bureau of Land Management.

She married Art Atkisson in 1948 and was a devoted step-mother to Art's two sons, Art, Jr. and Vern, and a loving grandmother to their seven children.
