Our thoughts and prayers go out to your family. Josephine was such a beautiful person as well as an awesome lady. She always had great things to say about everyone she met and a smile too. She will be missed and may God's peace be with you all.

I am so sorry for the loss of your mother.
May the peace of God that excels all thought guard your hearts and your minds as you rely on him for strength.
(Phil 4:7)

She was the best Grandma anyone could ask for. She showed me how to live life to the fullest and did so every day of her life. She was my Grandma Girlfriend and I will miss her terribly! I thank God for 43 wonderful years with her! I love her so very much!

Josephine was my next door neighbor when I was growing up on Garden Drive. I remember her friendly smile and patience as our kickball and baseball games frequently spilled over into her backyard.

Mary will most certainly be missed by family and friends. She came from a very close family full of alot of love.
Her daughter Joyce is a great friend whom I have always admired. My thoughts and prayers are with the families at this time.

Josephine will always be remembered for her feisty and tenacious personality. She was a bright spot at any and all gatherings, and I am truly honored to have called her friend. So sorry for your loss.
