Enjoyed Jo Ann through the Lycoming College Choir. She was a terrific person.  May the peace of God that passes all understanding provide you comfort at this difficult time.

I am having a hard time processing that my friend of over 70 years is no longer with us.  I send my thoughts, love and prayers to all of you.  Jo had a wonderful family and I know how much she was loved.  May she now rest in peace!
