There are no calling hours. Friends and relatives are invited to join the family at 10 a.m. Thursday in St. Francis of Assisi Church for Josephine’s Mass of Christian burial. Interment will be in St. Joseph’s Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in her memory to either Hospice of the Finger Lakes, 1130 Corporate Drive, Auburn, NY 13021 or Matthew House, 43 Metcalf Drive, Auburn, NY 13021.
