GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - WBAY lost a long-time member of its family. Jonie Paye was WBAY’s national sales manager for 26 years from 1993 until her retirement in 2019. She died late last month. Her funeral Mass is May 4.

Jonie was incredibly passionate about serving her community, including serving on the board of Encompass Child Care and as director of the Green Bay Botanical Garden, and she was an advocate for expanding opportunities for women and children.
