Josie passed away peacefully on Sunday, 16th May 2021 in her home in North Vancouver, the early morning sun illuminating her face. In her final month of life, she was cared for lovingly by her children and close friends.

    Last year was the first time we had contact by mail. In 1962 Josie was for only one year a schoolmate together wis her brother Daniel on “our” Waldorf school in Amsterdam (Netherlands). Daniel was in my class. Thinking about Josie i see a kind and very friendly person. It was a shock to learn she passed away so young.

    Adriana , Emily , Juliet , Stephen and families .
    Although I never had the pleasure to meet your mum in person , I’ve had several opportunities over the past year or so to talk to her over the phone or by text . I’ve always enjoyed our talks and found your mum to be very caring and loving. A very kind and interesting person with a definite love for her family and friends and those around her . She always had a kind word and I will always remember that and our conversations .
    I know the last while have been hard for her with her health and as hard as it is and as much as she will be missed , she is resting comfortably now .
    My deepest condolences to all . She will be greatly missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing her .
    Rest easy Josie
