Mary Jo (Arbogast) Tyner, age 75, of Connors Road in Munising, died early Tuesday morning, April 25, 2017 at U.P. Health System in Marquette.  She was born on September 26, 1941 in Grand Haven, Michigan to the late Charles and Gertrude (Bray) Arbogast.  Mary Jo graduated from Grand Haven High School.  While raising her family, she worked two jobs and graduated from Davenport College with a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management.  Mary Jo worked for Days Inn in Ashville, NC and helped open the Days Inn in Traverse City.  She also worked for the Grand Traverse Winery.  Mary Jo then moved to Maui, Hawaii and worked at a beautiful restaurant there.  She married Don Tyner on July 25, 2012 and they were members of the Faith Baptist Church in Munising.  Mary Jo enjoyed shopping and was always classily dressed.  She loved to read, bird watch, care for her cats Gimba and Snowflake, making fudge, and watch television.  Mary Jo was selfless and generously gave all of her herself to anyone who needed her throughout her entire life.

She is survived by her husband – Don Tyner of Munising; two sons – Mark Joslyn of Munising and Craig (Barb) Joslyn of Spring Lake, MI; step-daughter – Mary Kae Pietsch of Munising; three grandsons – Jeremy, Joshua, and Keegan; two step-grandchildren – Mathew and Victoria; three great grandchildren – Joshua, Julia, and Jenni Lee; three step-great-grandchildren – Damion, Keelan, and Faith; brother – John (Joanne) Arbogast of Bitely, MI; step-daughter – Mary Kae Pietsch of Munising; and numerous nieces and nephews.  Mary Jo was preceded in death by her parents and brothers Billy, Bobby, and Chuck Arbogast.

Mary Jo always had smile on her face and she was never in a bad mood.  She was always a loving mother and step-mother.  Mary Jo was generous with giving gifts that anyone needed.  She and Don always got along good together.

God bless her soul and may she rest in peace.
