Jo-Lieana Hacha

Born: 07/14/1950 Passed:

Jo-Lieana Hacha age 70, of Canton, went home to be with the Lord on January 6, 2021. She is a retired employee of The Timken Company. She dearly loved animals, fishing, camping, art, and vacationing in the Carolinas. We would like to share more, but Jo has hopped a ride on a friendly UFO and is currently fishing and feeding turtles on Hilton Head Island, while drawing incredibly beautiful pictures of the landscape. She is peacefully enjoying her heavenly dream.

Preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Adeline Hacha.

Jo-Lieana is survived by life partner of 39 years, Gail Coleman; sisters, Judith (Christopher Kuestner) Oddi, Margaret (Rocco) Rotunno, Sue (Bill) Shimko, Sr.; brother, Joseph Hacha; nieces and nephews, all of Canton; extended family, Bob and Karen Cheslock of Dover, her adopted aunt, Marilyn, and David Coleman of Cincinnati.

Jo-Lieana’s wishes were to be cremated, with no services being held. A family Celebration of Jo-Liena’s Life will be announced later.

    Joey, you were my sister and I will miss you terribly.

      Jo was an absolutely incredible artist. I have a drawing she did, hanging in my office. Condolences to family and all those who love her.

      • Melanie Marsh says:

        Joey, you will be deeply missed. You were a wonderful sister-in-law and I know you are at peace now.
        Eternal Memory

    • Gail Coleman says:

      So many wonderful comments about my Jo. So many people who recognized and appreciated her tremendous gifts; and people who appreciated her devotion to their growth and wellness.
      She was very proud to be a member of AA and – oh my – how she loved the people in those rooms! I was in awe of her fight and her determination to obtain and maintain her sobriety, a hard-won fight. I was inspired and honored to have been by her side. Thank You, Lord.
      In many ways, Jo was a very reserved person and not inclined to display her true feelings to her family and friends but, make no mistake, she loved you all dearly.
      I felt blessed to have Jo home for Thanksgiving. She enjoyed the turkey dinner, her favorite TV shows, Coco (our lunatic cat), and our conversations. We talked a great deal and held one another.
      We had silly pet names we would call one another sometimes. She would call me “Madge” and I would call her “Gertie”. Gertie, I sure loved you. I feel blessed to have been a part of your life and I will love and miss you until I take my last breath.
      Gail, Your Madge

    Hi Jo! It’s been years since we have crossed paths but you are thought about often. I have the drawings you made for the celebration at the First Ladies Library that IMPACT participated in. I see them every day as they are hanging in the office. What a gifted person we have lost. My heart is with you Gail. May God hold you closer during this time of loss.

    • T Hacha says:

      Aunt Joey,
      I will always remember you as a kind person, with an extraordinary artistic ability. I always enjoyed being around you and Gail! I hope you’re drawing and laughing with Grandma Corky 🙂

  4. Sharon Perrine says:

    I remember her first day at The Timken company – loved her art – She would sketch people while they were working on their machines – A beautiful soul she will be missed.

  5. Dawn Hopkins says:

    Such a sweet person that I had the pleasure of knowing . I will never forget the fun times at the camper and the golf cart rides. She will be deeply missed. My prayers to Gail and the Family.

  6. Terry Sedon says:

    Jo had a big part of saving my life. She helped me through a time when I was hopeless. She was there for me when no one else could. Thank God for her leading to a path of happiness and sobriety. Thank you Jo, I will never forget what you have done for me. She helped me to find God. Glad your in a better place. Love you Jo.
