Beloved wife of Mark Pophal; dearest mother of Charles, Alison and Megan Pophal; loving daughter of Milena Jarc (nee Smolic) and the late Joseph Jarc; dear twin-sister of Milena Matzinger (Mark) and Thomas J. Jarc (Tania). Josie worked as a chemical engineer before becoming a full-time domestic engineer. When her children were all in school, she obtained her teaching certificate and taught math and statistics at Notre Dame College.

Her smiling face and endless positive energy will be missed by all.
