In Loving Memory

Roetemeyer, Joanne  “Josie”


49, passed on to eternal rest on the afternoon of May 28, 2016 after a yearlong battle with pancreatic cancer.

Beloved daughter of Rose and the late Tom Murphy, and daughter-in-law of Donald and Beverly  Roetemeyer. She is survived by her best friend and soulmate, Rich. Surviving are her siblings: Rev. Michael  Murphy, Patrick (Brenda) Murphy, Mary (Mark) Belgeri, and Eileen  Pieri; and her siblings-in-law: David (Vickie) Roetemeyer, Linda (Philip) Eggemeyer, Donna Roetemeyer, and Lisa (Kraig) Allen.  She is also survived by her nieces and nephews, all of whom she loved as if they were her own children.  She will be remembered as the smartest, funniest, and most well-read person ever. Quietly hilarious and infinitely clever and generous, Josie was our treasure.
