Fortunate to meet Josephine back in my nursing career. She was so fascinating and a really enjoyed life. Wanted my mother to meet her as her maiden name was Brim also. Went to many Brim family reunions, the brothers all came to America from Europe. Jacquelyn Reese of Coulee Dam

Jo was my Mother-in-Law, and I married her oldest daughter Alice. At first I think Jo (and family) thought me a little strange... wait standing until the ladies at the diner table sat down, my holding her chair as she sat down, and holding the door for the ladies to go through first. This led to many learning experiences for both of us, One such experience occurred when I was home alone with the kids (Alice was at work) and Jo stopped by to find both kids and I at the dining table eating a balanced meal. In Jo's way of thinking, men did not know how to cook! This led her to search the house looking for who cooked the meal. Over time she learned that I could not only cook, but wash and iron clothes too. Over the years we both learned to adapt to each others quirks. I will miss her smiles! Ed B.

One deer season, Jay and I think Ellen, GmaJo, Alice and I were going to set up our hunting camp and when we got to our destination we found another couple of hunters in the same location. The two hunters were skinning out a buck that one of them had shot. GmJo jumps out of the car and goes over to the hunters, talks to them, and then rolls up her sleeves, gets her knife out and proceeds to help them skin out the deer. We all hunted together for several years.
