Josephine (Jo) Kay Abraham, age 67, passed away peacefully on February 10, 2019 at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle Washington. Jo was born on October 14, 1951 in St. Paul Minnesota to Gordon Heath and Antonina Ciresi. After receiving her Associate’s Degree, Jo enjoyed a fulfilling career at HealthPoint, a private non-profit community health center located in King County, WA, where she retired in 2016.
When not working, Jo enjoyed her trips to Williamsburg, PA with her husband, Les. Twice a year they dressed as George and Martha Washington and Jo performed in costume at the local establishments. They were also members of the Horseless Carriage Group. Dressed appropriately for the time, they participated in several driving tours in their 1913 Model T Ford. They also belonged to the Maple Valley Street Rats and the Puget Sound Early Birds. It was with the Early Birds that Jo and Les drove the entire length of Route 66. When not travelling, Jo and Les made their home in Enumclaw, WA for many years.
Jo is survived by her husband, Leslie E. White of Enumclaw, WA and her daughter, Natalia Mabbott who currently resides in Portland, Oregon.
