Jo was one of my Pilates students, and she was one of the most fun, genuine people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. My condolences to the whole family. Her smile and laughter will be sorely missed!

Jo & I were class mates at McCook High and also at McCook Jr College. She was a very special friend. We sang in a quartet in college, singing at different churshes, home coming attendants in high school and college. We had some great memories . I sang at Jo & Don's Wedding. Keith & I only saw them at our class reunions and maybe once or twice when we came to CO. We owned a business like your folks did so life was always way too busy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. We will miss Jo at our 60th class reunion.

Jo and I were classmates at McCook High School beginning in the 8th grade. She was a special friend and classmate who I can never forget. I transferred from Country School to McCook High School. The transition was very difficult being a "newcomer" to the class and not knowing anyone. She was the first to help me get adjusted and always friendly no matter what the circumstances. She and Don were a special couple who attended out class reunions over the years. Jo will be missed at our 60th at the McCook Heritage Days celebration and our 60th class reunion on Sept. 28, 29th and 30th, 2018. A Memorial is being given from our MHS 1958 Class.

Jo and I were special friends and classmates from 8th grade through high school in McCook NE. She was dear to me and I am so sad and sorry she is gone. I will greatly miss seeing Jo at our 60th class reunion in McCook this September. May God bless and keep Jo.

To all the Troyers,
So sorry to hear about the loss of mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, such a beautiful person.
It was a pleasure to know her all of these many years with the laughter, smiles and sorrow , which I have experienced with her in all of these things. She was a very special lady and will be remembered in my heart always. The pain is gone and may she rest in peace. My sympathy to all of you and the memories you have will be cherished by all.
All my love,
Lela Orrino

Jo and I were classmates at McCook High School and graduated together in 1958. She was always fun and full of energy. She had already registered for our 60 year reunion coming this September 2018 and we will miss her not being there. She was president of the pep club when we were seniors and I was a cheerleader so we did a lot of planning together. The question of course
is what happened to life? It has gone so quickly. She gives our class fond memories. She was the Homecoming queen of our class, everyone loved JoAnn.

Jo was friends with my grandma, Carol, for more than 40 years and stepped into our lives right after she passed ... her calls, texts, and surprise gifts always came with a reminder that grandma was remembered and so proud of us. I will miss Jo's warmth, generosity, humor, and the kindness she showed our family in our greatest time of need. I can never pay her back, but I will try to pay it forward. Thinking of you all! God bless!

Jo and my wife Diane Kleckner were classmates through school and friends ever since.
I also have known and hold dear memories of my friendship with Jo Ann and later her husband.
May she Rest In Peace.
