SANDERS, Josephine Kenya (née Simmonds) - It is with profound sadness that the family of Josephine "Josie" or "Jo" Sanders announces her recent passing, in her 75th year in Elliot Lake, Ontario on September 9, 2018. Jo is predeceased by her loving and adoring husband of 54 years David (deceased September 7, 2017) "Chic" Sanders. She will be lovingly cherished by her 3 children, Dean of Bristol, England, Lorraine (Rob Armstrong) of Brampton, Ontario and Mark (Vicky Sanders) of Elliot Lake, Ontario. She will also be forever remembered as the loving Nanny to her grandchildren, Shawn, Erika, Andrew and step-granddaughter Chanelle. Josephine was the daughter of Kenneth and Mary Simmonds. She was born on January 10, 1943 in Leicester England and later married Chic (David) on December 14, 1963. Her family, and dear friends will carry her kind-hearted memory in their hearts forever. We would also like to give great appreciation to John Pomerleau of Alternative Funeral Services for his gentle and empathetic role in making the whole process as comforting as possible. May the winds of Heaven blow softly And whisper in your ear How much we love and miss you And wish that you were still here 13301957
