Josephine retired as a civil servant October 21, 1981. Josephine's entrepreneurial spirit allowed her to build a retail leather goods store catering to San Antonio tourists over 35 years. Prayer was a daily part of her life. Her generous spirit was treasured by everyone who knew her. Josephine's family was her greatest joy in life.
