I am so sorry about your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I loved Josephine so much and will never forget her. The Nursing Home will never be the same. I am sorry I missed the calling hours. I just returned from Pittsburgh and read the newspaper. My prayers are with all of you. Andria Ayers

Ma was a one of a kind person, she knew her own mind and spoke it.

She was a hard working person her entire life.

We can all remember she would laugh at the silliest things.

We all remember how much her and Poppy loved to go to Canada fishing and the good time they had there.
