JoJo was born May 10, 1944, and was raised in Hoisington, KS. She followed her dreams to Chicago to work for her beloved TWA Airlines and as a dance instructor for Fred Astaire. Although away from home, she treasured her Hoisington classmates. JoJo retired from TWA/AA in Kansas City after 42 years. For those lucky enough to know her, she is simply unforgettable.
She is survived by her cherished husband, Ronnie McBroom; brother, Larry Steiner; sisters, Bernadine Muller and Gladys Byers; stepchildren, Brian McBroom (Leesa) and Shannon McBroom; nineteen “favorite” nieces and nephews and a boatload of friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, Clara (Meyeres) and Leo Steiner, and brother, Harold Steiner.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests gifts to VFW Post 7356, 10125 Tom Watson Pkwy, Parkville, MO. 64152 or St. Luke’s Hospice House, Kansas City, MO.
