Obituary— Josefina Snow

Josie Anna Snow, 74, passed away unexpectedly on May 26, 2023, in the arms of her loving husband in Piedmont, Oklahoma. She was born Josefina Anna Valenzuela on January 16, 1949, in Van Horn, Texas, to parents Juanita and Jorge Lucas Valenzuela. Josie, as she was affectionately known, had many cherished memories growing up in Van Horn with her family, and those memories played an important part in her life.

In 1969, Josie married a Van Horn classmate, and together they had two daughters, Joeanna and Raquel. Over the years, Josie and her family lived in various parts of the country before settling in Oklahoma City in the mid-1980s. There, Josie worked in sales, showcasing her talent and dedication.

Josie’s true love story began in 1991 when her path crossed with the love of her life. Together with her husband, Wendell, they built a home in Piedmont, Oklahoma, in 2000, where they resided for the past 22 years. Josie’s warm and caring nature made her excel in her career in jewelry sales, particularly in bridal sales. She had a knack for creating memorable experiences for numerous couples as they picked out their wedding rings. Her exceptional skills and compassionate demeanor earned her recognition and many awards, including trips to Las Vegas and Boston.

Josie will be deeply missed as a talented salesperson, devoted wife, sister, mother, and grandmother. She had a heart bigger than the state of Texas. Josie is survived by her loving husband, Wendell, her daughters Joeanna and Raquel, three cherished grandchildren, Tiffany, Courtney, and Aiden, as well as her sisters Gloria Melendez, Lydia Espinoza, and her brother George Valenzuela.

A ceremony to celebrate Josie’s life will be held at Hwy 54 Church of Christ in Van Horn, Texas, on October 14th at 10:00 A.M. The family invites all those who knew and loved Josie to join them in honoring her memory.
