Remembering Jo Anne Rother

Jo Anne Rother

Jo Anne Rother

From Barbara, Jo Anne’s sister:
“Sad to report that Jo died on Sunday, November 1, 2015 of cancer. Our hearts are broken, but we know she is no longer in pain.”

Classmate Sonia Chambers Hinkley posted this news on Facebook prior to November 1:
“To all my friends and classmates from Springfield, VA, it is with a heavy heart to have to share the bad news that Jo Anne Rother, is in hospice with breast, bone, and liver cancer. She is heavily sedated for the pain and has about a week to a month more of life. Please pray for a peaceful passing for Jo Anne, and for strength, comfort, and healing for her family.”

The R.E. Lee Class of 1981 sends condolences and good thoughts to those Jo Anne left behind. She will forever remain in our memories and hearts.

Big thanks to Jeri Miller Holland for creating a Facebook tribute to Jo Anne in our Class of 1981 Facebook page and contributing the text and images for this post in our website.
