  • Mary Joe was a beautiful person, full of wisdom and humor. I have so many fond memories of her while growing up as one of her cousins in Indiana. I remember that my father (her Uncle Charlie) and Mary Jo had a special relationship with each other, they respected each other and laughed a lot. I wish her husband Jerry and her children, grandchildren and brothers (and their families) my sincere condolences and prayers at this time. From what I observed, she was a great mom too. I'm so glad that we had the reunion in NY in 1988 to reconnect as adults... it was such fun and it will always be a great memory. Love to you all, Patty
