My husband John & I did not have the honor of knowing Josephine, but she produced a lovely family. We feel we do know her, however, through her daughter Doreen whose friendship we have been blessed with for many years. Thank you Josephine. Rest in peace.
To the Salse Family in the loss of your loved one: a chapter completed, a page turned, a life well-lived, a rest well-earned. May you find peace in the knowledge that your loved one has completed but one chapter in the Book of Eternal Life.
With Deepest Sympathy, Joan & John Lawrence

JR,

Thank you for being a wonderful mother-in-law! We've shared many memorable moments together. I especially like the memories of Christmas gatherings when Lino, Roxanne, Leslie, Ben and Maria were young.

You always opened your home to me and ALL my family and friends. I'll miss you, but I'm glad you're with your "handsome guy" once again!

I sometimes take photographs of stuff that pops up in my yard. If I think they are interesting enough, I send them to my friend Doreen. When I sent her a photo of a monarch butterfly on a zinnia flower she showed it to her mom. Josephine thought to make a watercolor painting of it, which is what you see here. Isn’t it beautiful?
Also, in my yard I collect the monarch caterpillars and keep them in a terrarium, and feed them milkweed until they form a chrysalis and hatch, and then I send them safely on their way. Sometimes I name them.
From my yard up here in New York they fly all the way back to Mexico. What a journey. This summer I will name all of them Josephine.

Josephine and Lino were my Ninos. "Nina Fina and Nino Lino". I remember spending a lot of time at their house with all the cousins Doreen, Susie, Mary and Linito, also Barbara, Lisa, David, Sylvia, Maryellen, Tina and Nick and my sisters Anna and lydia and brother John. There were so many of us and we all had such a good time together an sometimes we would get into trouble, but my Nina Fina would always keep us in line, while all the ladies were having fun joking and gossiping. Now all the sisters and my mom are back together again. I know they are joking and telling wonderful stories about us.

I have a sticker on the window of my car from Penzey’s Spices that says “Heal The World - Cook Dinner Tonight”.

Josephine cooked a delicious dinner for us a few years ago and Paul and I will always remember that meal - especially the soup course. Truly, we were waited on like royalty and felt cared for. I guess that’s where the phrase “made with love” came from.

Cooking involves skills, planning, time, money, and energy. It is labor intensive but a very real and tangible way, I think, of showing love. It tells friends and family that they’re worth the effort and that you want them to feel nourished and cared for. What could be more important than that?

Doreen - Your Mom would take a blank canvas and create beautiful things - with her cooking, painting and sketches. She also gave me a beautiful friend.

Rest In Peace Josephine.

My Tia Fina was the one who taught me how to bake delicious cakes & cookies. I always remember she used to tell me “ you need to use blue bonnet margarine, or it won’t come out right!” I always wanted to use imperial, cause it was cheaper 😐. She was right, it really made a difference. 🙄 What a talented lady, in addition to baking, cooking , sewing, gardening, crocheting, knitting, needle point, painting. My mom would say this is the way Fina does it. She really admired her talent.

It was July 4th early eighty's. I had the privilege to take my mom Anita , Fina and Connie to see Tom Jones at the Greek Theater. All the girl's sat to the left of me, and Connie next to me. Tom Jones began to dance and shake his hips( Ha Ha) everyone was screaming and laughing. I glanced over to my Mom , she was laughing and nudging Fina with her elbow. I gestured to Connie to look at the girl's!!! Connie was so cool, she just shook her head and smiled!! I can still see them giggling.

We moved next door to Josephine and Lino in June 1975. They were the best neighbors we ever had and we have had some really fine neighbors. The day in 2007 we told them we were moving away to be close to our grandchild was one of the most difficult days of our lives. We will cherish the memories of our time with Josephine, Lino and Suzie. May God rest their precious souls. Love from Kathy and Keith
