Josephine Wilson

Total raised


Target: £1,000.00

Josephine was a fun, loving intelligent woman whom was a teacher and in her later years loved her art.
Our mum was a vibrant woman who had an extensive history of travelling between Africa and the U.K.

Born in Lusaka, Northern Rhodesia she grew up with many different experiences in Africa.

She went onto live in the U.K., met our father and trained to become a teacher.

She taught primary school children and was incredibly passionate about her job. She would often test her new games or new found skills on myself and my brother which we thought was great fun!

She went onto teach English as a foreign language to teenagers after she and our father separated and also was a supply teacher in Hampshire.

She never remarried, but she had an amazing amount of friends and went on to achieve her second degree in Technical Authoring.

She was a bright, intelligent woman. She has an older brother and a younger sister.

Mum loved her art and has an Instagram account called @jowilsonartwork … she loved dancing, plants, bulbs, flowers, arum lilies, classical music, Coldplay, steel drums, watching Suits on Netflix, afternoon snoozes, spending time family, friends and her grandchildren.

Mum overcame many illnesses including CLL in her latter years.

Her PC was discovered by accident but due to due a late diagnosis she wasn’t able to have an operation or any treatment.

For this, we feel it is really important to be able to support the research and we are asking for all donations to be made to the PCUK charity please, as mum was taken from us far too soon and we would like to prevent this from happening to others.

Mum will be forever in our hearts 💜
