On Monday, November 8, 2021, Jolene "Jo" Grossoehme, loving wife and mother of 3 passed away at the age of 67 years. Jo was born on February 9, 1954 to the late Eugene and Myrna Bantz (Meyer). She graduated from Hastings High School with the class of 1972, followed by Bryan Memorial Nursing School in 1975. She spent most of her adult life as a resident of Omaha, working as a Labor and Delivery Nurse at Immanuel Hospital prior to retiring to Kingman, AZ in 2014. She passed away at The Joan and Diana Hospice Home in Kingman, AZ.
Jolene had a passion for ceramics. In retirement, she drove 3 hours roundtrip each week to attend her class in Las Vegas, NV. Her creations were shared with family and friends over many years, and are sure to become treasured family heirlooms for generations to come. She also thoroughly enjoyed baking and playing cards (particularly Pitch) with friends.
Those who were blessed to know her would be quick to tell you that she was among the most selfless, generous and caring people they have known.
Along with her parents, Jolene was preceded in death by her twin sister, Janene May. She is survived by her husband, David Grossoehme; children, Keith Grossoehme and wife Rebecca, Nicholas Grossoehme and wife Jill, and Janelle Grossoehme; grandchildren, Logan Grossoehme, Laurel Grossoehme, and Seth Grossoehme; sister, Jackie Griffin; and nieces, Bethany Griffin, Shelby Williamson and husband Tim, and Dominique Griffin.
To offer your sympathy during this difficult time, you can now have memorial trees planted in a National Forest in memory of your loved one.

Dear David, Keith, Nick, and Janelle,
I was sorry to read about your wife and mom's death in the Omaha World Herald obituaries in Sunday's paper. I remember her as a friendly, caring person, and as someone very involved in the education of you children.
I remember all three of you (Keith, Nick, and Janelle) from the library at Hartman. I hope you're all doing well and are having good lives with your own families.
Your "Old" Librarian
