Sometimes God puts people into our lives when we least expect it and they leave a big footprint on your heart~ that was Jo to us! We met her when we became “roof mates”. She was such a giving, caring, beautiful and gracious lady in all that she did. She shared stories of her life with us about her husband, travels, adventures and most of all Keven & Andrea, who were her reason for living. She will be missed more than we would ever have imagined. Kevin & Andrea please know we’re sending our love, blessings and prayers to you both now and always. We are so sorry for your loss. SanDee & Jim

Dear Kevin & Andrea~ We have only known your mom since Thanksgiving when we became “roof mates” ~ but what a lovely and amazing lady she was! Loved hearing stories of your dad, travels, friends and both of you. Her life was filled because of you both and we didn’t have a conversation without her telling us about you both. She took a piece of our hearts with her when she passed. We were blessed having met her and both of you also. We will miss her more than you’ll ever know! Blessings and prayers always. Jim & SanDee

I have been best Friends with Jo’s Son, Kevin, since first grade...such a lovely woman. When I got married, my wife had recently met her biological father, who also lived in Seattle. When we went to visit him, I agreed on one condition....we had to spend an evening with Andy & Jo. They picked us up in ‘Zeus’, and took us to Snoqualme(sp) Falls, then to their lovely home in Bellevue, overlooking the Puget Sound. They made us Hallibut Cheeks! I shall remember them for the rest of my days...?? I know Jo and Andy are cutting’ a rug together again...

Andrea, My heart goes out to you. I know this is a very difficult time and that it will continue to be. I've enjoyed hearing the stories about your Mom. I know you loved her deeply and will miss her endlessly. Take care my sweet friend.

My heart is broken after losing my dear friend Jo. She was my buddy and things will never be the same without her. Seahawk games were one of our favorite things to watch together with pizza and beer. She loved going shopping at new places we had never tried before. She will have a very large place in my heart for the rest of my days. Sad as it is, she went out on her own terms and that is a blessing. Good bye little buddy.

Aunt Jo was a wonderful person and our very dear Aunt. Growing up it was always so much fun to go to Aunt Jo and Uncle Andrew's house. They made family time so truly special. We shared a love of history and had so many fun talks about all things relating to history. Our family shall greatly miss her but she will always remain very special to us. We love you Aunt Jo very much.

I first met Jo 2 years ago around Christmas time. She was such a lovely, gracious lady. Even though I did not see her very often I truly enjoyed visiting with her, A month or so ago I called to see how she was doing and to see if I could be any help with buying groceries or anything else. She had everything taken care of and was doing well. We had a great conversation that afternoon. Jo will be missed by many people. I. will miss seeing and visiting her at Christmas time.
