Mary Jo had a way of making those around her feel so seen and loved. She was remarkably warm, kind, and generous- in a way that truly leaves a mark on those lucky enough to have spent time with her. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Mary Jo had a twinkle in her eyes and a smile on her face that brought joy to the VA workplace. She was a go getter and friendly to boot. It was so enjoyable to watch her and her husband dance together at the celebrations honoring the long serving employees at the VA. God Bless your family and Godspeed to you.

Mary Jo (and Mark) were close friends with my parents, and I was always eager to find a way to chat with them at mutual gatherings. Mary Jo was so vibrant and full of life. I often wondered if she was ever in a bad mood because she only exuded positive energy. We will miss her warm smile and caring attitude.

Time spent with the Dhein family in Sartell as the children were growing up was always joyful. Mary Jo, you were a bright spirit....and still are. Blessings to the Dhein family.
