Jo was a spitfire of a woman with a wonderful work ethic. She was a keen gardener -which allowed provision of good food for her family; and loved to volunteer at Theda Clark for 25 years.
Following the passing of Peter, Jo remained at the family home in Menasha until the age of 89! She was known to watch over her neighbors as much as her family watched out for her.
Jo enjoyed bingo, gardening, trips to the casino and spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Jo is survived by her children Alice Pollock, Ann (Steven) Nack, Myron (Barb) Daczyk and Tim (Beth) Daczyk; grandchildren: Jackie, Stephen, Scott, Tara, Holly, Geof, Brenda, Ryan; great grandchildren: Lauren, Brody, Victoria, Alexis, Kestrel, Stirling, Isla, Oskar, Crystal, Cory, Miranda, Ethan, Noah, Gavin, Katilyn, Blayke, Olivia, Rylen and great great grandchildren: Emma, Sofia, MacKenzie and Hudson. Jo is further survived by brother Robert (Dorothy) Jankowski as well as daughter in law Pam Daczyk.
Jo is preceded in death by her parents and husband as well as son Don. Grandchildren and great great grandchildren who met Jo at the gates of Heaven are: Jim, Shelley, Marlowe. Five of Jo’s siblings also preceded her in passing: Ann, Tony, Adolph, Stanley, Bernice.
