Hello all… we have to start with some sad news about the passing of Jo Lynne Cooper-Nearing. Barbara Bader wrote this up and let me to share it.
Life is short and precious… let us value it in every moment and every interaction.
“Jo Lynne Cooper-Nearing died May 2 from complications from strokes and lung cancer. She touched many lives and saved more than a few.
Jo worked hard to improve livability in Lents as the LNA Board’s Public Safety Chair until her resignation following a stroke in January. Her concern for all things Lents continued as she worked hard to recover during months of therapy and rehab.
There will be a celebration of her beautiful life the second week of June. Details to come.
Jo Lynne: you are missed.”
Thank you for your work, Jo Lynne. 🙂
