Josephine A. Ulery
September 17, 1925 ‒ June 26, 2017
Josephine “Jo” A. Ulery, age 91 of Delaware went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus on Monday morning, June 26, 2017 at the Ohio Living Sarah Moore Home.
She was born on September 17, 1925 to the late Paul and Ann (Mostalski) Gaccek.
In 1950, she was introduced to her future husband, Charles Harold Ulery. Together they shared 63 years of marriage. She held tight to their wedding vows and she was devoted and faithful to him in every way. Sadly, Charles passed away in 2014.
In 1954, Charles founded the Delaware Floor Company and Josephine worked by his side. The business continues in the second generation today, under the operation of their son.
Josephine attended Delaware Grace Brethren Church where she faithfully volunteered with the kitchen, children’s ministry and bible study. She also worked on the weekly bulletin. She enjoyed walking and listening to music and she always looked forward to family gatherings and holidays surrounded by her loving family.
A very friendly and giving woman, her heart was open to bringing joy to anyone she possibly could.
She is survived by her children, Cheryl A. (Steve) Chapman of Worthington, Susan M. (Robert) Harding of Columbus, Thomas C. (Lurrel) Ulery of Delaware and Joan E. (Edward) Oliver of Delaware; 10 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.
In addition to her parents and husband, Josephine was also preceded in death by 3 brothers Joe, John and Albert and 4 sisters Mary, Helen, Virginia and Viola.
