So sorry to hear of Aunt Jo’s passing, ironically on the fourth anniversary of Grandpa’s death (Col. Robert H. Kaurin - Art & Jo’s nephew). She was the kindest lady, and the Our branch of the Kaurin family remember her fondly. God rest her soul.

I remember a time when grandma Jo was canning veggies and par boiling corn. Grandma Jo was so patient with her grand children.

I remember her as a strong funny lady just as her sister was whom was my Grandma! My great Aunt! I remember taking visits to her house and playing in the yard which was much like a farm! She was always very giving and offering food! I remember picking her up and going to Reno with my grandma and other women in the family! She was so excited to gamble! I think she liked it! She had a laugh I never could forget with a great sense of humor! She was a incredible women that lived a long full healthy life with loving family around her! What a accomplishment! I hope she passed in those genes to me! ! She will be missed!!

Hi Grandma Jo, Thank you for all your love and sacrifice. Thank you for being the shining, beaming example of an extraordinary life lived. Thank you for pushing on to raise your children. Thank you for being the grand matriarch of a great family that helped produce generations of wonderful loving people, who all share you warm heart, and selfless kindness. You reminded me of my Grandma, my Abuelita. I saw her smile in you sweet one. It was an amazing honor to have met you, I was blessed by your presence, we were all blessed by your presence. These words are not enough to describe your amazing legacy. But know that, it has been passed on, through generations of strong beautiful women, now to your greatest treasure, you Great Great granddaughter Viana. It was pure magic to see you hold her. God Bless you Josephine as you move on towards your next journey in the Heavens. You will be missed, but treasured, and remembered for your 100 year love. From the Guerra's, with the warmest hearts Maui Guerra
