I met Josie in Tahiti, year 1979, and we had such a good time together. I kept lovely pictures of us tracking John Travolta ... We kept in touch for a while, telling us all the travels we were doing in our own part of this world. Last contact was a Christmas card from NZ, telling me about her first new baby coming soon. A lot of water passed under the bridge since then... As i am planning a long trip to Nz in 2019, i had the idea to search for her and ended up on her recent obituary... i am so sad! I want to write my deep condolences to her family. If you happened to see this , please contact me by email and i could send you the pictures from Tahiti. So sorry ...

Bella,

Each day I listen to the song "Broken Halos" (by Chris Stapleton) .
It provides some comfort and understanding, but I still miss you greatly.

Hello Gower Family,

We are so so sorry to hear of your great loss.
Our hearts go out to you all during this time...
I have no words for what you are experiencing and as a community member I am so heart broken for you all.

We live in Montecito and returned home today. We went on a quick walk up our creek about an hour ago, and found a bunch of washed up photos and some items that we believe belonged to Josie and your family. We gathered what we could find and would LOVE to give them to you.
Please contact me:

I lived next door to Josie and Elda from 2nd grade on through high school. We recently connected and were planning on meeting for a glass of wine but sadly it never happened. Josie, you brightened my childhood with your friendship. Two Italian girls growing up next to each other always laughing and enjoying simple, silly things. I will carry your memory in my heart. God bless your family.

I met Josie in the late 1970s in Santa Barbara. We did a road trip across the US and Canada to Arlington, Virginia where she lived at the time.We stopped along the way to visit friends and family in Vancouver and Minnesota. It was a great and wonderful memory.
The song Josie by Steely Dan was popular at the time. The lyrics described her perfectly.She loved to sing and did a great Stevie Nicks impersonation.
Although I hadn't seen her in 40 years,I will always cherish the time we had together, such a fun and sweet gal.
Sorry, sorry to her family and friends. We are blessed to have known Josie.

In another bitter sweet moment another angel has found her wings.
And has set off on flight safe into the arms of God and to those gone before her waiting and anticipateing her arrival as she makes her way into heaven.
Josie, I pray you are dancing and singing with the angels and that you are resting in peace. I know you were happy to see your mom and dad and all the loved ones that passed before you. Rest in peace, you will be missed but you'll always be in our thoughts and in our hearts
