The funeral service will be held at 12.15pm on Friday 11th June at St Mary’s Church, Hampton.
As capacity is limited (due to social spacing in the church), attendance is by invitation only. However the service will be webcast live and details of how to access this are provided below, along with directions for those who are attending in person.
The service will be followed by the burial at Teddington Cemetery. Due to restricted space around the graveside, we are requesting that only immediate family and close friends attend the burial and that everyone else makes their way direct to the Wake at The Crown in Twickenham.
Regrettably, government rules for a Wake limits attendance to 30 people so we have had to make this by invitation only.
Please note: Formal funeral attire is not necessary, Josephine loved wearing a splash of colour (in particular red) and polka dots!

In lieu of floral tributes we invite you to donate to either of our chosen charities MacMillan Cancer Support or The Antonio Carluccio Foundation.
We have chosen Macmillan because they provided calm and helpful support when Mum needed it for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia.
We have also chosen The Antonio Carluccio Foundation because Mum was such a great cook and loved Masterchef. We want to be able to support young and disadvantaged chefs and make the world a better place through good cookery and food.
I didnt meet Jo very often, due to the very great distance between us but when I did she always gave me a very warm welcome and I always enjoyed the experience.
She was a very easy-going likeable person and will be greatly missed by her family.
Jo was a lovely, kind person, who cared about others. She will be greatly missed by her friends and neighbours.
I only knew Jo for a short time but she was one of the loveliest people I have ever met.
I had the privilege of knowing Jo for nearly 20 years. She was the best of friends – kind, generous, thoughtful and really good fun to be with.
In loving memory of a dear friend who looked after us well when we stayed and helped me and my husband out many times at London flower shows.
Jo was our neighbour for almost 20 years. She was very welcoming and always had a friendly word. We appreciated the interest she took in our family and will greatly miss her.

It is with great sadness but very fond memories that I have to now say goodbye to Jo. She left an indelible mark on my life and stood steadfastly by me through a very difficult time. I will never forget her kindness, her quiet strength nor her warmth. I only wish I could have repaid her for all she did for me. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and mother-in-law who really loved to feed her family with the most delicious meals. I think she must have had magic spoons and many a time I left the Tickle household quite a bit heavier than when I entered! She was also fond of coming round and bringing her delicious brownies or flapjacks which were pretty much irresistible. I will miss her humor and her wonderful wisdom and all our chats over a cup of tea.
I will miss you very much Jo but I will never forget you. You are in my heart forever.
All my love, Cara. xxxxx
I first met Jo in 1961 as a fellow student in Bedford College and later shared a flat in Kensington with her, Rosie and Elaine.Happy memories!
Jo was a lovely person-thoughtful and kind ,always putting the needs of others before her own. She always appeared calm and cheerful, coping with whatever life offered her.
She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
