Josephine who was known to everyone as “Aunt Jo” was born August 10, 1923 in Dinwiddie County, Virginia to the late Robert L. and Henrietta Watkins. She was predeceased by her siblings, Florence Baker, Della Watkins, and Robert E. Watkins.
Josephine grew up in Dinwiddie County and was educate in the Dinwiddie County School System.. At an early age she joined Shiloh Baptist Church. Upon completion of high school, she and George moved to Newport News, Virginia. They later relocated to White Plains, New York where she honed her skills as a seamstress.

She will also be missed by a host of other family members and friends including Margaret Hall, April Mellor, Sheila Bullock and Robert Garrett. In addition to family and friends, Josephine loved her church family at Star Fellowship Baptist Church. A sincere thank you to the staff at The Guest House Hospice for the exceptional care they gave Josephine in her final days.
Josephine loved people and always greeted everyone with a loving smile. She was a great cook and everyone who visited could count on a wonderful meal. Those who knew her would marvel at her uncanny memory. She had a remarkable ability to remember minute details of events that most people barely recalled. Whenever someone would ask how she was doing, she always replied, “I’m still here.” She will continue to live in our hearts.
