  1. I am very sorry to hear about Jo’s passing. She was my mentor in Weight Watchers and I loved her dearly. She always had a smile. She will be greatly missed.

  2. I worked with Jo @ W.W. for 18 years. She was a dear friend, fun receptionist at meetings, willing participant in our silly ‘costume or skit days’ close confidant and upbeat lunch partner. She liked everyone and was liked back. I’m happy she and ‘Bud’ are together again. I can still hear her infectious laugh!
    Until we meet again my friend.
