It is with deepest sadness that we announce the passing of our dear aunt and friend JoJo.
JoJo was born in Bad Tatzmannsdorf, Austria and came to Canada in 1957 where she worked in Yellowknife as a camp cook, as a waitress in Prince Rupert and in Prince George and was a long time employee of the Coast Canadian Inn in Kamloops from where she retired.

She is predeceased by her parents Maria and Johanna Karl of Austria, the love of her life Larry Bremner and many good friends too numerous to mention.

Leaving to mourn her passing, her sister Elisabeth Obermeier, Marion and Tom of Salzburg Austria, niece Rosemarie Lee of Kamloops, great-niece Michelle Finlayson, Mike and Cheyenne of Kamloops, great nephew Geoffrey Lee, Kim, Kade and Tait from Abbotsford, Godchild Joanna Sauve, Dean, Braiden, Brandon of Vernon. Her good friend Lynne Faust who was with her until the end of her life and helped to care for her - Thank you so much. Also leaving behind many dear long time friends, too many to mention all. JoJo was a kind and loving forgiving soul and will be sadly missed by everyone she touched in life.

A special thanks to Dr. Julie Anderson, all the nurses and staff of 3 West at Royal Inland Hospital and everyone at Kamloops Hospice for their caring and compassion.

God saw you getting tired
when a cure was not to be
So He closed His arms
around you and whispered
"Come to Me."
You didn't deserve what
you went through,
so He gave you a rest.
God's garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best.
And when we saw you sleeping
so peaceful and
free from pain,
we could not wish you back
to suffer that again.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you never went alone,
for part of us went with you
the day God call you home.

Always loved and never forgotten
.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of JoJo can be made to Kamloops Hospice Association or The Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.
Service to be held at a later date.
