Jo Ann Joy Hill was a woman of which to be proud. I met her at NMSU in '59 at our Chi Omega Sorority House. She was pinned to a TKE. Later they broke up, and even later--I married that TKE! Jo lived a facinating life and achieved much. As they say in Texas, "ya done good, kid". Peace be with you, Jo Ann

Many years ago, I was invited to a student Native American event at Corbett Center. It was to begin at 7pm. Following my usual habits, I arrived about 6:40pm and found a completely empty ballroom. 7pm--empty. 7:20--empty. At 7:30, when I had decided my calendar was wrong, I was about to leave. Jo walked in. I explained my problem. She replied--"Oh Fran, I guess you never heard about Indian time...." Sure enough, about 8pm the drummers arrived and we had a lovely evening! Jo was a great gal and I was sorry when the Health and Physical Education Departments split and I lost her as a colleague. I know her son and family miss her greatly.
I have such wonderful memories of our
trips to many Western Swing Festivals.
I am sure your many friends missed you
at the Cowboy Symposium this weekend.
Rest in piece my dear with no more suffering. My sympathy to your family.
Love You Dear Okie Friend,
Your Okie Friend, Marge Arrington
I'm missing the many many fun times we've had, but remembering them with delight! rest in peace, sweet friend, knowing your life was filled with joy!
My dear friend - how you will be missed!! I'm remembering you & dancing our socks off at WPS! The heavens are brightened by your shining star now. My sympathy to Andy, Lucy, & those grands. My love to you Injun.
We have lost a great lady and a great friend, I have many wonderful memories of Jo Ann from our days at NMSU where we were Chi Omega Sorority sisters and in the Aggie Band together. Our thoughts and prayers are with Andy and his family - so was so fortunate to have you - she was so very proud of you!
