Anastasia, Jo-Anne
Jo-Anne Anastasia, 76, a longtime resident of Newton, MA, went to her eternal rest on June 6, 2018. Following a brave battle against cancer, she passed away peacefully at Newton-Wellesley Hospital. She was born on April 6, 1942 in New Haven, CT, the daughter of the late Mary L. and Biagio A. Anastasio of Hamden, CT. She was preceded in death by her brother Blaise. She is survived by her son Ion Sokhos, her grandson Jack Sokhos Drude of Newton, and her brother Michael and sister-in-law Jaye Anastasio of Spotsylvania, VA.
A graduate of St. Mary's High School, Saint Raphael's School of Nursing and the UC Davis Woman's Health Practitioner Program, Jo-Anne's nursing career spanned 4 decades, culminating at Carney Hospital in Dorchester. She dedicated her time to helping those around her. She loved her family and friends, and cherished the times she spent cooking meals, traveling, or just simply talking with loved ones.
