Catherine Jo Briggle

(71) of Phoenix, Arizona left her recent life of chronic pain on Saturday, March 19

th

to reunite with her beloved parents, Albert and Joan Briggle, her sister Susan, and husband, Thomas Schollmeyer.

“CJ” was born, January 11, 1951

at St. Charles Hospital (

Toledo

, Ohio

)

, grew up in Curtice, and graduated from Genoa High School in the Comet class of 1969. One of nine, CJ’s adventure began with a stint with the FBI in Washington, DC, employment with Questor (Toledo),

P.I.E. trucking,

Red Ball Express,

sales representatives for union

affairs

in Denver, Las Vegas, and Phoenix,

dispatcher,

and

lastly

as an administrative clerk for the justice system of Maricopa County, Arizona.

She was an ardent Democrat, who worked diligently for years in organizing campaigns and candidate fundraisers, attending party rallies, and promoting social causes. CJ’s travels included treks in Europe, Japan, the fifty states with notable memories made from Colorado, Montana, Arizona, and Ohio. She seldom missed family outings, whether the many niece or nephew weddings, Christmases, and the festive July retreats at the Put-In-Bay cottage.

Passionate about living, Cath

i

Jo cruised the seas, played the nickel slots, and became very adept at euchre,  p

in

na

cle, and as a tournament tested bridge master. Any gathering became a party with CJ.

Left to mourn her passing, are her siblings Rick (Gina) Briggle, Karen McKown, John (Ginny) Briggle, Tom (Linda) Briggle, Jean (Mike) Garrison, Patricia (Mike) Tokarcik, and Terrie (Ed) Jens

cousins,

nephews

, and the entire Schollmeyer family

S

pecial

Arizonian friends

of

Marlene

,

Keit

h, Ann

, and Sean

showed unconditional love for her

. CJ’s devotion to her three “rescue” dogs in Yoda, Willow, and Kai is inspirational as is her wishes for organ donations. Tributes considered could include the Humane Society, American Cancer Society, or

one

of personal choice.

Bueler Chandler Mortuary

(www.buelermortuary.com)

is making arrangements for her

final

interment. A celebration of her life is planned for later this year

. Shed tears if you must

,

but find comfort in knowing CJ lived a life of proud service

, generosity,

and

dedicated

loyalty to others.

To paraphrase

the angel

Clarence in “The Wonderful Life”,

she

died

rich

with

friends

and with such wealth.
