A gentle soul of extraordinary kindness and grace has left this world. She will be greatly missed, but forever remembered by her sons Lynn Konner, and Neil (Joyce) Konner; son-in-law, Brian Rauw; grandchildren: Jennifer (Craig) Metcalfe of Victoria, BC, and Gillian (Dobry) Mihov of St Albert, AB. She will also be carried in the hearts of her great-grandchildren: Tavin, Maia and Arlo Metcalfe, and Ariella, Samuel and Isaac Mihov. She also has numerous nieces and nephews who were very special to her. Josie was predeceased by her husband, Harold Konner; and recently by her daughter, Gail Rauw. Josie was an incredible woman who touched many people with her warmth, generosity and unfailing belief in the goodness of those around her. She was extremely devoted and supportive of her family, and had many friends. Josie was well known for gifting her very special cinnamon buns, homemade bread, and cookies to express gratitude and thanks to friends and neighbors. She was a genuine chef, who loved and excelled in her craft. Food was an important part of her life and conversation – often commenting on her meals and asking others what they had eaten or were planning for supper. Josie was an active member of the Catholic Women’s League for many years. She never refused a request to help out and did so with great humor and considerable spirit. Josie understood that it was better to give than to receive. She is a testament to those left behind on how to live a good full life, and to accept and enjoy the moment. She complained very little and when she was in pain, she was always “fine”. Mom, Grandma, Great-Grandma or Auntie Josie – by whatever name, she will forever remain our inspiration.
