Josephine Mahaffey Brubaker died June 11, 2014.
Born Feb. 9, 1935, in Mahaffey, she was a daughter of Emery and Ruth Mahaffey, child number six of what would become a family of 13 siblings.
In 1956, after graduating from nursing school in Clearfield, Josephine married the love of her life Robert "Bob" Brubaker. They had three children, Robert "Bob", Ruth and Kathy. The family resided in Pennsylvania until 1969, at which time Bob's business took them to Nogales, Ariz., where they made a permanent home.
The two passions Jo had were her family and her nursing. In 1969, she responded to a knock on the door inviting her to come to work as an RN at Holy Cross Hospital, where she continued to serve the Nogales community over the next 30 years.
She was adored as a wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend.
If you knew "Jo" Brubaker you know she didn't like to be fussed over, but you also know she was certainly someone worth making a fuss about.
A memorial service is planned for July 26 in Rockton.
