Ada Kuehner, 1921-2003, "Mommy" to Josephine and the five girls who loved Josephine.
Today Josephine was put to rest, to spare her more pain and discomfort. We all feel, I think, that she earned the right to an easy departure, for growing up with the family as a companion, playmate, and guardian, she lived a full life.
I always felt she was unusually bright (like all my girls), and had a special personality, a sense of humor, as in the "karate shots" she would give one from the rear, or her playful "hat-snatching attacks" in which she would pull the girls stocking-caps off, and an independence of personality, as she took every chance to go exploring.
