Sending love to the Bauer Family at this sad time. Jo was at our home often and I remember her wonderful laugh. She always had kind words and awesome hugs. Jo was an amazing, funny, strong woman. She told great stories and was always in motion with a measuring tape around her neck. She was so loved and so very special to my whole family. I will truly miss her.
