She is survived by her daughter, Carol (John) Crosbie, of Cogan Station; grandchildren, Emma (Kyle) Casciole, Matthew Crosbie, and Carolynn (Richard) Fox; and many loved nieces and nephews.

A lifetime member of the First Baptist Church of Blossburg, she loved spending time in God’s word. Josephine also treasured picnics with her family and sitting on her porch swing.
