Her sisters May, Bridget and Gertrude and two brothers Patrick and Michael are deceased. Her sisters Kathleen and Nora are living in County Galway, Ireland. She has many nieces and nephews living in Ireland, USA, Austrlia and one nephew Gordon in Canada.
Josephine immigrated to Canada in approximately 1970 and taught with York Region Catholic and Toronto Catholic School Board. She was an educator throughout her life both by profession and example of her life. Her Catholic Faith was her pillar of strength both in joys and struggles.

Daily Mass and praying the rosary gave her peace and strength as she accepted her illness.
