Josephine Joan Dennis

April 04, 1929 - August 03, 2018

Josephine "Joan" Dennis passed away peacefully at home, Friday, Aug. 3, 2018, at the age of 89 after an extended illness.
She was born April 4, 1929, in Alexandria, and lived in Anderson most of her life.
She worked at Delco Remy for 13 1/2 years and then enjoyed raising her family of three children at home.
The daughter of Herschel and Benona Neff and the devoted wife of Dillard "Chig" Dennis, her husband of almost 69 years, will be missed greatly by her family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; two siblings; and husband, Chig (just two months earlier).
Josephine loved to travel and would "jump" at any chance to see the world around her. They had a motor home and loved camping and spending time with friends. She was quick to smile, loved to make silly faces with the kids, and her laughter and love filled every room. She loved flowers, taking pictures, and especially caring for her animals.
She is survived by daughters, Cindy (Tom) Morris of Harlan, Indiana, Dixie (Gary) Traylor of Brownsburg, and son, Kevin (Sharon Johnson) Dennis of Anderson; seven grandchildren; numerous great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandson; and nieces and nephews.
Funeral services will be held on Friday, Aug. 10, 2018, at 4 p.m. at Rozelle-Johnson Funeral Services, with Pastor Tim Wilbur officiating. Burial will follow in Bronnenberg Cemetery.
Friends may visit with the family from 2 to 4 p.m. prior to the service.
