Senate, the California State Senate, and the California State Assembly for her work with the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), and commendations from the Mayor of Burbank, the County of Los Angeles, and the U. S. Senate for outstanding and invaluable service to the community. Josephine was also recognized for her service to Villa Scalabrini Retirement Center before she "retired" there.

Josephine is survived by her son, Michael and his wife Ramona of Michigan, son Gene and his wife Helen of Wisconsin, and daughter Natalie and her partner Karlin of North Hollywood, nine grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
