Josephine Hodgins Bidwell, 102 passed away in Spring Hill, FL on Wednesday August 25, 2021
She was a retired owner of a giftware store and faithful member of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church.
Survivors include her niece Judith McDonough and nephew Louis Sliazis.
Calling hours will be from 11am to 12 Noon on Thursday September 2nd with a Mass to follow at 12pm in Our Lady of Lourdes.
For several years, Josephine lived near me in Indialantic. Gracious, gentle, soft-spoken, positive and always happy to share a smile.
My mother-in-law and Josephine were both of Lithuanian descent. Between the two, Josephine was a bit better at speaking the language. It brought comfort and joy to my MIL to know she had Josephine as a neighbor.
My MIL passed at the age of 103 in 2017. When I noticed the date of birth given for Josephine, she was just 2 months from reaching her 103rd birthday.
I am saddened by the loss of Josephine and send sincere condolences to her family.
The Lord lifted her up and she is at peace in heaven. I will remember Josephine always in my heart, never forgotten.
