Josie Evans, 69, of Florence, passed away March 5, 2007.
Josie was born in Melrose, New Mexico on October 17, 1937.
Josie was a resident of Florence since 1970, and some might remember her from her many hard worked hours in the kitchens at Driftwood Shores, (where she worked for 10 years), Mo's or The Shorewood.
Josie is survived by six children; Mary Sipes of Anchorage, Alaska, Nancy Larson of Eugene, Andrew Bush of Florence, Verda Dew of Beaverton, Michael Evans of McMinnville, and Helen Lawrence of Florence; nine grandchildren, Melissa, Brian, Miranda, Sarah, Heather, Brittnay, Tabitha, Christina, and Abigail, also one great-grandchild, Mary Ella. She also leaves behind five brothers, Anthony Rambo of Butte Falls, Fred Rambo of White City, Cody Rambo of Butte Falls, Ira Rambo of White City, and Arthur Rambo of Eagle Point; and one sister, Myrtle Henshaw, who had preceded her in death.
The family ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Friends of Florence.
Services are scheduled for Friday, March 9th, at 12 noon at the Community Baptist Church in Florence.
Burn's Riverside Chapel Florence Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
