Mary Jo was a lifetime resident of Lorain where she graduated from Clearview High School in 1963. She retired from Lowe’s after 15 years of sharing her vast knowledge with customers. She was active in her church and loved painting, gardening, working in her yard and reading, however her greatest joy was always spending time with family.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the American Cancer Society in hopes that one less person will be lost to this terrible disease.
The family will receive friends at the Wyers-Bollinger Funeral Chapel, 2900 N. Ridge Rd., Sheffield Twp. on Monday from 4-8pm with a service beginning at 7:30pm.
