I was so saddened to hear of the passing of Jo Ann. We were good friends in Jr. High & had many fun times together back then. She was a very special person.
Please know your family is in my thoughts & prayers.

To the Copley and Sherry families:
Sorry to read of JoAnn's passing. We were away for the weekend so we missed the visitation and funeral. While working for the Eldred Borough Water Authority, she laid the ground rules for much of our business practices. I will miss her smile and kind words.
