I got an email this evening from Margaret (Maggie) Clouse Bilby. She had talked to Jo Ann's husband, and she died sitting in her chair with one of her pet birds on her lap (or wherever they sit!). She must have not felt a thing! I may hear more at the visitation Friday, but I think we can assume a heart attack, stroke or something like that. Quick and painless. I sure will miss her though. She was a lot of fun!

JoAnn was a delight from the time we met at Mary Help through high school and on. Glad she went peacefully. At least she was in good spirits all week, packing for their winter Florida stay.
Remember how precious life and friends are.
