Everything about Josephine was connected to nature.

She lived on the same track of land since April of 1928, and from her father she learned the name of every tree and plant surrounding her home.

She was an avid birder, able to identify with the flash of a wing or the shortest of song.

She would tell her grandchildren while in the woods, that she felt the closest to her Savior when she was walking among the beauty He created.

Josephine was known for her green thumb and her vegetable gardens, overflowing root cellar, and shelves full of canned fruits, jams, and jellies.

Josephine was famous for her flowerbeds especially her daffodil lined lane.

Josephine was a woman of many talents she quilted, embroidered, and was a wonderful cook.

Her family will miss her apple pie, hot water chocolate cake with peanut butter icing, johnnycake, and most of all her homemade bread.

Josephine requested that there be no formal services held for her. A private family celebration of her life occurring at a later date.

Josephine was a cat lover and requests any memorial donations be made to the Gateway Humane Society, 1211 Airport Road, Falls Creek, PA 15840.
