Josephine was born on Aug. 2, 1925, in Cleveland, and passed away on March 27, 2021, in Chardon.
She graduated from Chardon High School in 1943 as Salutatorian.
Josephine worked at Addressograph Multigraph, before becoming the secretary of Maple Elementary School, in Chardon, from 1960-1982.
On Nov. 22, 1947, in Thompson Township, Josephine married the love of her life, Arthur. They moved to Perrysburg, Ohio, after they retired. However, she enjoyed working and began working as the secretary in the mayor’s office. She also volunteered at St. Rose Church for over 20 years, where she was president of the senior club, and at hospice for 21 years.
Josephine loved to travel. She went to Alaska and Hawaii. She loved the ocean the most, especially going to Hilton Head with her family. She enjoyed helping others and could always find joy in gardening.
She grew up the youngest of three girls. As a child, she lived on a farm and would wake up every morning to milk the cows before going to school and eventually work. This taught her the value of hard work.
Josephine adored her family and appreciated her friends, especially those from the Perrysburg cul-de-sac.
