Josephine was always a great listener, cautious with her advice, and allowed her children to make their own decisions. She would encourage any endeavor and was often their personal cheerleader. She devoted this same care to her grandchildren and looked forward to their visits. Josephine had a sweet smile and a contagious laugh that everyone loved to hear. She was Tamara’s best friend and cooking instructor, always applauding every meal regardless of the outcome. She will be deeply missed by everyone who knew her.
Her funeral and interment will be private. Funeral arrangements under the direction of the Millspaugh Camerato Funeral Home, 139 Jefferson Hgts., Catskill.
In lieu of flowers, Josephine would have appreciated for you to say a prayer for her or have a Mass offered at your parish.
