I had the great pleasure of working with Mrs Brock over her many years at Hendrick Medical Center. She was an inspiration to all with her boundless energy. She shared her experience and was a great mentor to the younger staff. Countless students stood in awe of her. What a great lady! She will be truly missed by all who knew her.

I had the privilege of knowing this special lady for years. Experienced being her manager but also her friend when helping her niece who depended on her greatly. I often said if I end up on C3, please let Jo take care of me. I knew I would be in good hands. In fact she took care of all of us. Her legacy lives on. A great nurse loving compassionate and caring. Wish there were more Jos. You will be missed.
