Josephine was born March 9, 1921 in the town of Sigel to John and Cora Holstein. She was married to George for 70 years. They lived and worked together on a small farm in the town of Sigel until retiring to an apartment in Wisconsin Rapids. She enjoyed cooking and baking for family and friends, often using food grown in her own large garden. She loved singing in church and reading Scripture. She attended the Vesper Christian Reformed Church (later New Hope in Wisconsin Rapids). In her spare time, she loved doing jigsaw puzzles of all sizes.
Josephine is survived by her children: Gary, Richard, and Bonnie (David). She is also survived by one sister, Elaine Suwyn; one brother, John Holstein, Jr., and one sister-in-law, Minnie Holstein; four grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren. In addition to her parents and husband, she is preceded in death by three sisters and two brothers.
The family would like to thank the staff of Atrium Post Acute Care and Ascension Hospice for their excellent care in her final months.
