Josephine was very loved by our family. She loved spending time with our children and watching them grow. Her smile could light up a room and she was such a pleasure to talk to. She had some interesting things to share!

John & Walter and families, we are sorry for your loss. She loved to talk about all of you, and show us pictures of her great grandchildren when we would visit. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
