Obituary for Josephine I. Teal

Josephine I. Teal, 68, of Chambersburg passed away on February 15, 2019. She was born May 22, 1950 in Chambersburg, the daughter of the late Chester Teal and Bessie (Marcellice) Teal. She was a member of John Wesley AME Zion Church. She loved to read and her favorite book was the Holy Bible. Josephine attended Scotland School for Veterans Children and graduated in 1968. A factory worker, cosmetologist, and seamstress, she enjoyed being very fashionable and made and sewed trendy outfits. Making others look good with her cosmetology talent made her very happy. She loved her family and they were very important to her. Josephine NEVER OWNED A CELL PHONE. The only reason she had a Facebook page is because she wanted to play Bingo and other games! Winning the lottery and advocating for others were among her more noted ambitions. She is survived by two children: Terrell Teal and Drey Teal; eight Grandchildren: DeVante Miller, LaKeisha Teal, Tavaurus Teal, Haylee Teal-Holsopple, Ty Teal-Holsopple, Damien Teal, Imyree Teal, Izayah Teal; six siblings: Stanley Teal, Bessie Twila Carter, Ludell Teal, Jonathon Teal, Sadie Teal, Vincent Teal and her grand pup, Nyla.
