Josephine Margaret Van Dusen went to Heaven on March 30, 2022. She was born May 18, 1924 in Corning, New York to Michael and Jessie Di Laura.

Her husband Raymond, parents, and two sisters have predeceased her.

She is survived by her children: Deborah, Doug (Sharon), Lynn (Keith); three grandchildren: Darin (Megan), Kristen, Michael (Kim); eight great-grandchildren along with two great-great-grandchildren who all brought many smiles to her face over the years.

Josephine was born and raised in Corning, New York where she graduated from CFA. She worked for Corning Glass Works and Ingersoll Rand as a secretary. One of her greatest joys in life was being a wife and mother, but she found time to serve her community as a Cub Scout Den Mother and a volunteer for Corning Hospital Chapter for many years. Jo and her husband lived in Painted Post from 1951 until 2005 and then they moved to San Antonio, Texas permanently with her son and daughter-in-law. She enjoyed crafts, cruising, reading, and spending time with family and friends. She will be forever missed.
