So sorry to hear of Jessie's passing. Sincere condolences to the entire Why family. She was such a nice lady!
I will greatly miss you Aunt J. You always treated me like one of the family, which means I was always well fed and taking even more food home with me! You were so fun to be around and will forever cherish the card games we all played during Chinese New Years. Rest in Peace.
I was sorry to hear of Bruno's passing. I considered him a very good high school friend and was pleased, with my wife, to share the table at our high school reunion with him and his wife, along with the Riggio's. I will always remember him as a great, happy and fun loving friend.
I am so sorry to learn of JoAnne's passing! She was so welcoming to me when I first joined the Lowell Innes chapter of the National American Glass Club, and so willing to share her knowledge. She will be greatly missed.
I met JoAnn at my first glass club event at the PPG Winter garden.We worked in a booth together and I really felt welcomed by her.Over the years I have enjoyed learning from her.I hope a little section will be set aside at the history museum in her and Earl's honor as a legacy
What a great lady!!!!! JoAnne will be missed at our meetings and they will never be the same without her. My deepest sympathy to all of you. Thanks for sharing her with us. God bless.
My parents, Don and Ellen Roberts, were good friends of Earl and Dorothy through the Pittsburgh glass club. I was fortunate to have met Joanne and Earl and spent many Christmas meetings visiting with them. I loved their stories and marveled at their knowledge and experience. My thoughts and prayers are with your family .
I will sincerely miss seeing JoAnne at the Lowell Inness Meetings at the History Center. JoAnne was a friend and of, course, a fountain of information about glass, especially Co-Operative Flint Glass.
Sad to hear another piece of the Beaver County historical puzzle has passed on. Mr. and Mrs. Autenreith were frequent visitors to my Parents home discussing the glass that was manufactured early in Beaver County and Beaver Falls Art Tile. It was a privilege to have known her. My thoughts and prayers are with the Family at this time.
Amy so sorry for your loss. Prayers for your family.🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻💕💕

Ed and I are saddened by the news of JoAnne's death and will treasure the times we spent with Earl and JoAnne at glass club meetings and at their home. They were full of information about glass and were so willing to share their time and talents.
