Josephine Frances Vega, 84 of Caruthers Ca. entered Heaven's gate on June 11, 2017 at 11:01 p.m. surrounded by her loved ones at home. She was born in Whittier Ca. on August 2, 1932 to Augustine & Lucy Carrillo. She married the love of her life Henry B. Vega on July 23, 1951.

After Josephine started her life with her husband they bought a ranch in Caruthers and they farmed it for many years side by side. She worked many jobs but then found her joy of helping students learn English and became an ESL Aide at Caruthers High for 10 years. She always had a thirst for knowledge and continued her education at the age of 65. She ended up going to Fresno City College for 2 years.

Josephine loved gardening, watching her Hallmark movies, reading, going to the beach, gambling with friends and family and of course her favorite past time is watching baseball and being a Giants fan.
She was very spiritual and read her Bible, Psalm Book and a prayer book daily. A devout Catholic and a faithful woman of God. Her Faith is what helped her during her illness and also helped many others with her Guidance.

No matter who she encountered she welcomed them with her radiant smile that warmed your heart. Even when she was very ill she brightened up the room with that beautiful smile.

She is preceded in death by her wonderful parents Augustine & Lucy Carrillo, and her loving husband of 55 years Henry B. Vega

She is survived by her 2 brothers, Augustine Carrillo Jr. and Celso Carrillo. Her 4 children: Barbara Edwards and husband Robert, Henry Michael Vega and his wife Teresa, Christopher Henry Vega, and Kathleen Bankston and her husband Daniel.

Also survived by 11 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren, 3 great-great grandchildren and her wonderful companion Speedy her dog.

The family is very thankful for the care that Hinds Hospice provided her. Special thanks to Cam, Tang, Jeri, Balaria, and Pastor Mike.

We would also like to thank everyone for all the love and support during this difficult time. God Bless.
