A native of Los Angeles, Josephine graduated from Washington High School. She was active in the Mothers Clubs of St. John Evangelist School, St. Mary's Academy and Serra High School. Redondo Beach was her home of the last 28 years. She loved to sing, was a fabulous cook, had the best sense of humor and the greenest thumb. She gave her family the greatest gift of all - a loving home. She dearly appreciated her many friends. Her dazzling smile and bright blue eyes will be missed by all who knew her.
