    Mary Jo was a very special person who made you smile every time you saw her. She embraced life and was a friend to all. She was dedicated to doing all she could and always kept a special place in her heart for her four legged children. Mary Jo loved traveling in their RV with her friends and family. She offered her time and love to those around her. She made a difference in so many of the lives of the young people she encountered while working. Her family and friends will celebrate the person she was and know we are better for having had her in our lives. Our memories of Mary Jo will be with us in our Hearts as we remember how her life influenced each of us.

    Mrs. Gee was a gem! Coach Gee coached me at Windsor Forest High in 1979-71. Over the years, I used to stop by their house she I ‘Coach’ outside and we chat. Often, Mrs. Gee would come out with a smile and break up the ‘scrum’! She was always more than calm and easy going. We are diminished.

    I met Ms Mary Jo first while working for Dr Baruch. When she would come to the office she always had a smile on her face and never complained. Very pleasant person. We met up again some years later when I worked for Dr Pritzker. Even though years went by she had never changed. Still smiling and no complaining. Thankful that I got the chance to know her. Mr Bobby is a great person as well. No wonder they made a perfect pair. Mr Bobby I miss you and you take care of yourself .
