It is with great sadness that we report the passing of our long-time member, Sister Jo Nemec, SSND.
Sister Jo joined SLWS in 1998 and served as our pictorial historian for 12 years documenting every meeting demonstration and every workshop to create 3 beautiful albums for our archives. Her cheerful disposition and ready hugs were always a welcome ray of sunshine. She served a term on the board of directors, in charge of scheduling programs, in addition to her historian position.
Her wake is this Friday, Aug. 31 from 5:30 to 8 p.m., with a prayer service at 7 p.m., at the School Sisters of Notre Dame chapel, 320 E. Ripa Ave., 63125. Her funeral is Saturday, Sept. 1 at 10:30 a.m. at the same location.
Sister Jo participated in all most all of our exhibits over the years and was a Signature Member. Here is her award winning painting from Big Splash 2007 titled Shapes and Shadows of Florida.
