Josephine was the person you could hear laughing across the room. There were five things she loved most in life: traveling, being with Family and friends, church, talking, and food. She Lived in Quinlan, Texas for 41 years where she worked at Vintage Wood Work for 13 years and then retired from the Quinlan ISD as a cook for the elementary school. She was previously a member of The Rebeka's in Quinlan and the Ladies Red Hat Association in McKinney. After Josephine retired she moved to McKinney, Texas where she volunteered as the "Popcorn Lady" at the McKinney Hospital. After a few years she moved to Beatrice, Nebraska where she was a member of the Bible Baptist Church. Her hobbies were sewing, crocheting, and playing cards. She will be missed by all those who knew and loved her.
