I would see Jo at the noon Mass. We would say “Hi” then I would see her drive away in her little sport’s car—I’m thinking it was red. I asked her if it belonged to one of her children, she immediately answered—NO. This is my baby. She seemed very proud of her independence. I’m very sorry for your loss.Your family are in my thoughts and prayers.🙏

May Jo's soul rest in peace, and enjoy her glorious and eternal life with our friend Jesus all those who have gone before us. I had the pleasure to be acquainted with Jo at the 1200 Mass through Jessie Yates. Jessie would often say Jo was the premier bridge player this side of the Mississippi; no one could outplay her. Jessie would also say "that is one classy lady in that hot red mustang and she is a class act driving it". My prayers and thoughts are with all of you.
