Because we lived a distance we did not see each other We connected on Facebook when my granddaughters first full time job after graduating college was in Huston. My daughter her husband and another daughter flew out to Texas to set up an apartment for their daughter. I contacted my cousin Budgy to let her know this It was Christmas time Budgy was so excited to meet my family her and Dom opened up their house to them with a beautiful Christmas tradition. We were closer when we were younger and she lived in NJ she always was a beautiful person inside and out. I'm sorry we didn't have more time together. I will always remember you Love you Cuz RIP Angel

We are so saddened by the death of Josie, however, we have many memories to remember her, especially the several Christmas Open Houses we have had in the past and dinners out with friends.

She was a real inspiration to us with her pleasant and happy demeanor when being around her. She was a devoted wife, a super grandmother and a wonderful mother to her children. Memories such as these can never go away and want all to remember that she will always be in their hearts.
Know that she will always be in our prayers and that the family will be tucked away, also, in lots of thoughts and prayers these days ahead.

Now we have another angel in heaven that can look down on her family.

With deepest condolences and much love,

Bob & Rosalyn Beierman

Dom I am at a loss for words, learning of your loss. Please know how sorry I am as both of you are very special people and the loss of one has created an incalculable emptiness to all who know you. As for me, it marks a time in my youth of fun and knowing you both as good and outstanding kids. God Bless You and Budgy's memory!

There is not enough space to capture the lifetime of precious memories that we have of you and Dominick. We have witnessed our lives evolve, the birth and growth of our children and grandchildren, and the eventual passage to that time when we can reflect on it all and fill our hearts and our minds with peace and satisfaction that we have done our best. You have fulfilled your role, Budgy, as a loving wife, the consummate mother and grandmother, and a treasured friend to so many. We cherish that friendship, Budge, and promise to cultivate our love for you and your family. You will always remain with our mind...and in our hearts! LOVE, WAYNE AND ANGIE THRELKELD.

Josie was a very special friend to our family! I always enjoyed our lunch dates and will always treasure the beautiful statue that you gave me on one of my birthdays! You were special to our children as well! You always came to our celebrations and that truly meant a lot to all of us! We will miss your beautiful smiling face!

Rest In Peace Josie,
Lori, Chester, Alyse & Allen
