Writing Clerical 07


Jo Lindberg

August 11, 1928 ~ June 7, 2019 (age 90)

Jo Lindberg, 90, of South Russell, passed away Friday, June 7. She was born on August 11, 1928 in Cleveland, OH, to the late Henry and Theresa (Busser) Hrabak; she was the eldest of seven children. Jo enthusiastically threw herself into whatever she did, including being the first woman bus driver in Aurora, teaching PSR for 16 years at the Church of the Resurrection and then Church of the Holy Angels, singing in the choir at Holy Angels, and going to Tennessee year after year to attend the storytelling festival.  She was an elf on the Polar Express and acted in the musical Tetelestai Passion Play during Lent for several years.  She worked full time much of her adult life, then continued part time, including tutoring at Kumon until her early 80s. She loved being a writer, something she could only start when she was in her late 60s. She was a columnist for Bainbridge Banter and later Spirit of Bainbridge for 16 years. Although it was a “senior” column, it was enjoyed by people of all ages. At 49, she started in the first Weekend College Program at Hiram College. Preceded in death by her husband Wes, her brother John Hrabak, and sister Mary Hanna, Jo leaves behind to cherish her memory her children, Beth McCammon, Wes (Deb) Lindberg, Yvonne Lindberg, Chris (Leanne) Lindberg and Matt (Tina) Lindberg, five grandchildren, and twelve great grandchildren. Jo also leaves behind her sisters Laurie (Ron) Andexler, Judy (the late Angelo) Caporale, Cheryl (the late Bob) Warmuth, and Linda (Tim) Radecky and sister-in-law Audrey Hrabak, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Jo never met anyone she didn’t automatically consider her friend. She was truly ageless as she celebrated each and every day with the enthusiasm of a child. The Family will receive friends at THE FERFOLIA FUNERAL HOME, 356 W. AURORA RD. (OH RTE 82), SAGAMORE HILLS FOR VISITATION WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12 FROM 2-4 AND 6-8 P.M. Visitation Thursday, June 13 from 10 to 11 AM at the Church of the Holy Angels, 18205 Chillicothe Rd, Bainbridge Rd, OH 44023, will be followed by Mass at 11 AM.
