Jo A. Pressler



Jo A. Pressler, 68, of Aurora, Colorado, died unexpectedly on February 14, 2018; the apparent cause was a heart attack.

Early in her adult life Jo became affiliated with the labor movement, first with AFSCME and later with the AFL-CIO and the Teamsters, during which time she lived and worked in both Chicago and Washington, D.C. She owned and operated a dog grooming business in Chicago and later in her work career, coordinated research grants for the New Mexico Heart Association in Albuquerque, NM. Jo had a lifelong love of animals, particularly dogs and horses. She had retired and relocated to Aurora, Colorado early in 2017 and had been elected President of the Seville Recreation Association, where she was becoming active in renovating the condo association's pool and recreation facilities.

Jo was born December 7, 1949 in Carlinville, Illinois, where she graduated from Carlinville High School in 1967. She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Virginia Pressler, and is survived by a brother, Mike Pressler, of Chicago, IL, and a sister, Nancy Slimak (Gary) of Centennial, CO, as well as two nieces, one nephew, and seven great nieces and nephews.
