Condolence: Sad to hear this wonderful lady who loved music and whom I had great luck to sing with occaisionally has passed. She was such a devoted teacher and her children whom she taught were better for having her teach them. I am hoping the family is comforted to know how many people admired her for all her years of service to our communities.

Condolence From: Sandra (Corkum) Veenstra
Condolence: I was saddened to learn of the passing away of Josephine !! Although I haven't seen her often over the years, I always enjoyed hearing about her many involvements in music which was also my passion.
One of the things she mentioned to me the last time we chatted was how much she enjoyed working with me when I was the Swimming instructor at the Saw Pit wharf and she became my assistant !!! She thanked me for being her mentor !!!
Josephine will certainly be missed in Lunenburg and Mahone Bay !!!!
My condolences to her family !!!

Condolence: It is with great sadness that we heard of Jo's passing. Josephine brought music to our household. Yet it is not the music that we will remember so much as the values Jo inspired through learning and performing. Diligence, responsibility and concentration were her hallmarks. We played, we sang and we danced, and while we practiced the real lesson instilled was to care. We love you Jo. Our prayers are with you and your family.
