Josephine Brockett was born April 27, 1941 in Donalsonville, GA, the daughter of Ernest and Beatrice Key Brockett. Josephine worked as a Lab Tech for Shaw Industries for 27 years. She was a member of Potter’s House Church where she loved to sing in the choir. She married Starling Odom in 1957 and they remained together until his passing.
Josephine loved to get lost in a hard to solve crossword puzzle or play a game of solitaire. She was the centerpiece to a large family. She spent all the time she could with her loved ones, especially her grands. Josephine enjoyed taking them fishing and always had a well-prepared meal on standby for everyone to gather around the table and rejoice together. She would help anyone that crossed her path, and all those that come around became her extended family.
