HOBSON, Josephine (nee Jepson) Known as Jo or Josie, passed away peacefully early Saturday morning on the day of August 10, 2019. Her passing comes one week before her 62nd wedding anniversary to her surviving husband Gerald (Gerry) Hobson. Josie was the mother of seven kids; David, Donna (deceased at age 15 months) Patti, Doug, Marianne, Sandra and Val and Grandmother to Ally, Andy, Cody, Melissa, Cassie, Mathew, Aaron, Chantal, Rachel, Ryan, Austin and Mikey; step Grandmother/Great-Grandmother to Shawn, Chris, Jordy, Kimberly Courtney, Daniel, Noah, Tabitha, Declan, Evelyn, Tara, Caine and Nyasia. Josie was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario. Josie worked as a bookkeeper in the early years at Westinghouse but gave up her career to raise her children. She loved kids and was very active in the Home and School Association as well as Parent Volunteer at Stinson Street School for many years. She was a Block Parent for as long as anyone can remember and later worked at St. Peter's Day Care. Her selflessness had no bounds and her generosity was even greater. Josie's compassion and main focus in life was her family. Keeping that family bond was her main goal all through her life and it has successfully been passed on to her kids. Gerry and Jo's family, friends and their children's friends will always remember the open door policy at the Hobson's house on Christmas Eve. Right up to the day of Josie's passing she always had a smile on her face, never cursed and always asked how you were doing without wanting to burden others with how she was doing. She will be sadly missed by family and friends alike. Visitation will be held at CRESMOUNT FUNERAL HOME located at 322 Fennell Ave. E., Hamilton, ON L9A 1T2 on Friday, August 16, 2019 between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. and between 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. and Services will be held Saturday, August 17, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Heart and Stroke Foundation in Josephine Hobson's name. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at www.cresmountfennellchapel.com for the Hobson family
