Josephine S. Navarro, 1917 – 2008, age 91, affectionately known as “Josie” or “Cheppa”, passed to her heavenly reward on May 4, 2008. A life long devotion to God and the Virgin Mary enabled her to carry her Christian burden without questioning God’s purpose for her. Josie was very devoted to the praying of the rosary. Each and every day, Josie would recite her rosary and ask the Blessed Mother to protect each and every one of her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and anyone in need of help. Josie is survived by brother, John Silvas, son, Simon Navarro Jr., daughters Lucy Trujillo, Martha Dupras, Catherine Lopez, Mary Aycart and Josie Morales, and many grandchildren and great grandchildren and other extended family and friends. Funeral Arrangements entrusted to Whitney & Murphy Funeral Home, 4800 E. Indian School Road, Phoenix, Arizona 85018. Visitation from 5:00 P.M. to 7:00 P.M., with Rosary immediately following, Thursday, May 8, at St. Anthony Catholic Church, 909 South 1st Avenue. Funeral Mass will be at 10:00 A.M. Friday, May 9, 2008, at St. Anthony Catholic Church with burial following at St. Francis Catholic Cemetery. Grateful thanks to Spectrum Adult Care Home and Serenity Hospice for the loving care Josephine received during her remaining years.
