Josephine A. "Jo" Solomon

Mrs. Josephine A. "Jo" Solomon, 86, of Lebanon, passed away peacefully Oct. 8, 2013, at her home, with her family by her side.

Josephine worked for the Boone County State Bank for 27 years, retiring in 1989. She was a member of Kappa Delta Phi Sorority, life member of Kent Chapter 117 Order of the Easter Star, Lady Elks and was a volunteer at Witham Hospital in Lebanon. She lived by the Golden Rule, loved her family unconditionally and truly had a servant's heart, always putting others needs before her own.
