Josephine G. Ceseña was born on April 18, 1925 in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico.

She met her husband, Alfred S. Ceseña on Cinco de Mayo, 1946, while walking down Avenida 16 de Septiembre with her sisters. She fell in love with his handsome looks and charm and he fell in love with her beauty and grace. After a four month courtship, they wed on September 29, 1946; they were married 65 years.

Alfred and Josephine established their home in his hometown of San Diego, CA, first moving to Barrio Logan then relocating to Lemon Grove in 1956. They had four children: Josephine ''', Alfred, Yolanda and Gloria; and one grandchild, Mónica. Josephine was a proud housewife, devoting her life to her husband, children, granddaughter, and pets.

To everyone who knew her, Josephine's persona was that of elegance and class. She took pride in going above and beyond in everything she did, always paying attention to even the smallest detail as a reflection of herself and her family.

In 2005, she was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and in more recent years, Dementia. She passed away in her home, peacefully in her sleep, on March 25, 2015, exactly 42 years to the date after her mother passed on March 25, 1973.

Josephine is survived by daughters Gloria Ceseña and Yolanda Bryan; son Alfred Ceseña Jr.; and granddaughter Mónica Hernández. She was preceded in death by husband Alfred S. Ceseña (2011) and daughter, Josephine Ceseña (1955). She will be greatly missed by those whose hearts she touched and loved her.
