From the Mar-Ken 1941 Yearbook, as a Sophomore:
Jo Stern — Seattle, Washington.
“To make a home for my husband” is the wish of Miss Jo Stern,
And since she golfs and sews and cooks, she hasn’t much to learn,
This brown-haired miss with eyes so bright and smile that’s hard to beat,
Confesses that above all things, she really loves to act.

From the Mar-Ken 1942 Yearbook, as a Senior:
Josephine Stern: Well, “Grandle Fedandle”, Jo, you sure are pretty, despite the fact that you won’t wear make-up, which you dislike. She likes to sing and play golf, though, and her ambition is to be a model wife and mother.
