Mary Jo Hanover — In Memoriam

Mary Josephine Emmanuel Hanover (1952-2012) was a professional trail blazer, a beloved wife and mother, and a steadfast ambassador for IAMC. Hanover was a positive force: thoughtful, kind and vibrant. She was a friend and an inspiration to those who knew her.

Hanover is survived by her husband Dennis; daughter Erin Hanover Lloyd and her husband Jonathan; sons Cameron and Peter; father and mother Patrick and Olivia Emmanuel; siblings Deborah Emmanuel, Barbara Emmanuel and her husband Berndt Griner, Patrick Emmanuel Jr. and his wife Christine, Robert Emmanuel and his wife Karen, Stephen Emmanuel and his wife Susan, and John Emmanuel and his wife Patricia; and nine nieces and nephews.
