She loved visiting her homeland and went back to Ireland as often as she could. She was full of life and loved dancing and listening to music of all kinds. She was nurturing in every way and enjoyed cooking and baking for her family.

She is survived by her husband, Thomas B. Wilson of Waltham; her children, James A. Wilson of Waltham, Sharon M. Wilson of Maynard and Sean T. Wilson of Waltham; her grandson, James D. Auditore; her brother, Peter Lewis of Ireland and also leaves many nieces and nephews.

I will miss you dearly Aunti Josie. You touched more lives than you realize with your sweet and kind soul. You left us too soon but your memory will live on forever in all of us touched by your heart. My mom and dad loved your visits and your delicious home made treats you brought them. An angel while you were with us and now an angel in heaven. Blessed you touched my life.
