Carole Meekins: Positively Milwaukee

Welcome Back Bo

  • Print
It's a day Bo Black thought may never happen. But it did. The former executive director of Summerfest is back in Milwaukee, throwing out the first pitch for the Brewers game. Just a few days before Summerfest, Bo was joined by her grandson Brewer Anderson. It's been an incredible journey for Black who suffered a stroke last February and has been diagnosed with five aortic aneurysms. Black, who is married to former Brewers manager Tom Trebelhorn, tells me people from Milwaukee have been wonderful and supportive. Black now lives in the Phoenix, but she will always be a Milwaukee favorite. She was surprised that people are still asking for her autograph after all these years. But I'm not. Viewers still call and ask me about how she is doing. Many are people who had short encounters with the former beauty queen..a waitress who served her, a mom who once worked at Summerfest, a handyman who did work for her. All say the same thing. Bo is a good woman with a good heart. Despite her health problems, Black forces herself to get the strength to set a good example for her daughters, son, and grandkids. She's a true meaning of a survivor. She inspires us all to keep fighting, no matter what curve balls life may throw at us. Welcome back to Milwaukee Bo!! It's great to see you again.
