She was an active member of Delaware Run Wesleyan Church where she formerly served as the treasurer.  

 

Josephine enjoyed taking her boat on yearly fishing trips and was a member of the Weikert Sportsman club, where she owned a nearby cabin.  Most important was spending time with her family where Josephine was a matriarch and true care giver, always willing to help anyone in need.
