Josephine Scharlz Newman died on June 10, 2020, in McLennan County, Texas. 

Josephine was born to John Scharlz and Willie Mae Scharlz on October 14, 1919 in McLennan County, Texas where she lived her entire life. She married Floyd B.

She is survived by her son, Darrell Newman; two nephews and their families; Bill Scharlz and Alan Hooks. 

Josephine maintained a household for her husband, a disabled veteran; and their son, while managing a business of raising parakeets.
