Sorry I couldn’t be with you today my thoughts and prayers are with all of you, I know how difficult it is to loose “Mom” she was a special person. I have so many memories of Aunt Josie one of my favorites is how we used to get the babies to sleep. I spent many hours with Josie when I was a young girl and teenager as Uncle Joe was away from home working. I’d walk to her house after school & help with supper then while she bathed boys I’d do dishes. When boys were bathed and ready for bed, we’d bundle baby up put boy/boys into backseat of car with a blanket, I would hold baby and Aunt Josie would drive around as it was the only way she could get babies to sleep (we did this for more than one baby). If it was a school day Josie would drop me at home and then go home and carry boys into bed. On the weekends Aunt Josie and I would bake, do laundry (which was no small feat in those days as you hauled your water in heated it then hauled water out) and play games all the time talking and laughing. Aunt Josie used to love to laugh. I am blessed for having been able to spend so many hours with her as she was such a special aunt.

So sorry that your mom, grandma, greatgrandma had to suffer so long. I will always remember our coffee times together usually at her house. She was a great neighbor.

Take Care.

I have fond memories of doing puzzles with Josie when she shared a room with Betty. She was a great roommate for mom. I know all too well the sorrow you all feel with her passing. May the memories you have give you comfort & strength.
