Born in Adelaide, Australia, Jo treasured her "Aussie" roots but loved Minnesota for what it taught her about learning and growing and caring for others. She had lived in the Twin Cities area since 1980. A loving, giving and generous person with a wonderful sense of humor, Jo had an abundance of friends and touched and inspired all who knew her. The family wishes to express their gratitude to all the doctors and staff of the Parker Hughes Cancer Center whose professionalism and personal caring was exceptional. Also the family are most thankful to the N.C. Little Hospice who provided Jo with extraordinary love and comfort during the last two weeks of her life.
