Josephina had several different careers in her lifetime; secretary, certified nursing assistant, custodian; but of all she accomplished being a wonderful mother and loving oma to her grandchildren is what she will be remembered for most.

The family would especially like to thank the nursing staff at Dallas Retirement Village Health Center and Willamette Valley Hospice for their constant, attentive care.
