Josephine Bakker Our beloved Mom was born in Garfield, NJ in 1925. She was the daughter of Polish immigrants and had an older brother John and a younger sister Lillian who currently resides in Maine. Our Mom was married shortly after WWII to our Father Joseph for sixty two years. They lived originally in Brooklyn, NY but finally settled in Richmond Hill Queens, NY where our Mom owned a women's apparel shop on Liberty Avenue for 33 years. They raised four children, Mary Lou, Allen, Gerard and Alida. Retirement brought them to Florida where they lived happily in Dunnellon for 27 years spending their first 22 summers in the Poconos of Pennsylvania. Josephine Bakker is survived by her children Allen, Gerard, Alida, her sister Lillian, nine grandchildren - Sonja, Tara, Regina, Keith, Scotty, Bryce, Troy, Nina, Kylee and two great grandchildren Willem and Arie.
