    I was very sad to learn of Josie’s passing. She was a dear friend for many years to our family. We were neighbors in Rose Park on 85th North, and (a correction here), it was my mother, Myrna Turner, that taught Josie to play bridge. She became a part of a wonderful bridge club in Rose Park with my mother, Jacquie Emley, and several others.
    I baby sat for Josie one summer and then, every weekend for a year in my Junior and Senior year of high school when she lived in Taylorsville. I believe she was working on her cosmetology at that time, but I watched Jodie, Michael, John, Anna, and Lewis was a baby at that time. Lots of fun times.

    We moved out of state as soon as I graduated from high school in 1966, and I lost my connection with the family. However, I know Josie and my mother continued their friendship until my mother’s death in 2004. Josie was so much fun. So much energy. So much love. I can hear her wonderful laugh and voice right now. My condolences and best wishes to the entire family. Much love to you all,
    Pat Turner Knowley
