Mrs. Jo was a faithful member of Goshen First Baptist Church until her health failed her. She loved Children. She would often load her car with children and off to church she would go. In her earlier years she loved to sew dresses and bake cakes for people in the Goshen community. She also did a little hair styling on the side. Her legacy of caring and kindness will live on through her offspring. They will fill their hearts with pleasant memories, the sound of laughter and rest assured that Josephine's earthly work is done.
