Josephine left her earthly home unexpectedly Sunday, April 14, 2013, not knowing her Father in Heaven was calling her home. Josie, as she was known by those close to her, grew up in New Mexico, and was born in Taos, N.M., in 1954. She lived in Albuquerque, N.M., for over 25 years, where she worked for Social Security and as a civilian worker for over 10 years with Sandia National Laboratories.

Josie is survived by her husband Tony O. Galloway who grew up in Ogden, Utah. Josie had two sons, Anton M. Galloway, now living in Logan, and Juan I. Lucero from Mendon. Josie is also survived by her sister Ruth L. Garcia and brother Ruben Jr. Lucero from Dixon, N.M., and other loving brothers and sisters from Vadito, N.M., and other beautiful northern New Mexico communities, as well as other brothers- and sisters-in-law from Albuquerque, N.M.
Jose was a very compassionate and happy person, who liked to share what she had with others. She had great love for her grandchildren who will miss her greatly. Josie made friends with everyone and was liked by all. She will be greatly missed by those who knew her.
Josie is preceded in death by her adoptive mother and father Loyda S. Lucero and Juan D. Lucero, as well as many other brothers and sisters from both her biological and adoptive families that are currently shouting for joy to have her back home in the presence of our holy God.
Josie and Tony lived for a short period in Las Vegas before returning back to Utah about three years ago, as she wanted to be closer to her two boys, grandkids, family members and friends.
Mom loved to cook, and we will miss her joyous smile and jokes that would make us laugh at every family event. We now ask that you watch over us from heaven MOM, care for and continue to love us, as you always have.
As the quote says, "Love, fill your life with sunshine and your heart with love." We promise to keep you and this quote in our hearts, 'til we meet AGAIN!
