Obituary – Masur, Josephine

Born: June 07, 1946
Passed: April 26, 2007
Jo Masur of Slave Lake slipped peacefully away on Apr. 26 in the loving presence of her family.
Jo was born on June 7, 1946 and raised on a ranch near Strathmore Alberta. She excelled in both sports and academics, even winning the Governor General’s award. She graduated with honours from the University of Calgary.
Upon graduation, Jo spent an enjoyable year teaching in Zambia, Africa with CUSO. She relished her years ranching in the foothills of Montana. Later, Jo moved to Faust and then to Slave Lake where she taught adult education.
She loved teaching and helped many people, especially women, achieve their academic and personal goals. In the last few years she had fun changing her career to real estate, finding it a rewarding challenge.
Jo’s children were her pride and joy; Montana, Mariah (Keith) Jeremiah (Cecilia), her grandchildren Daisy, Agustin, Ashton and Oakley.
Jo was blessed to marry Bill Masur on July 19, 1997 and they formed a great team. Bill was her faithful partner and caregiver during her illness. She passed away from complications related to cancer.
Jo will be remembered and greatly missed by many whose lives she touched, whether it be as a teacher or colleague, a friend, a wife, sister or as a mother.
Memorial services were held at both the Anglican Church Parish in Slave Lake and at St. Michael’s Anglican Church in Strathmore. Interment followed at the Strathmore cemetery.
