So sorry to hear of Josie’s passing. I got to know Josie when I moved to St. Clare Manor almost 5 years ago. She lived just across the hall from me. She was a sweet sweet lady. We had many chats and she would often call on me when she needed some little thing done. She was so kind and caring, always concerned about how everyone was doing. She will be missed by me and I will always remember her as the sweet lady she was. RIP Josie

Gail, Sharon and Harold :
So sorry to read about Josie’s passing, we know you have many special memories of time spent with her.

With our Sincere Sympathy.

God rest her soul. Josie was the “living doll”, what a pleasure to have met and worked with her. Truly, the only person I have known to wake with a smile on her face consistently!
Rest In Peace Josie, you will be missed.

She is missed here at the manor. REST IN PEACR JOSIE

My deepest condolence to Gail ,Sharon and Harry and to Josie’s extended family. Josie was one of a kind. It was certainly a pleasure to have worked with her. She will be greatly missed. Love Ann (you abide with me)!

So sorry to hear of Josie’s passing. I have very fond memories of spending time with her in her house in Newtown when I was a little girl and visits I made to her when she moved to St. John’s. She always had so many stories to share. May she rest in peace!
