I just heard about Jo’s passing from a friend of my late Mother. My Mother, Theresa Festa, worked with Jo at Helen Street School and loved her dearly so this is very sad news for us as well. I hope that loving memories of Jo will bring you comfort. With our deepest condolences, Maria Festa Carter and Family
