Josephine is the 7th doll in my series The Residents of 7717 St. Charles Ave.
Josephine had lived at 7717 St. Charles Ave for about a year before the big storm hit. Hurricane Betsy was predicted by the local weather man Nash Roberts to be the biggest and worst storm to ever hit the region. Josephine, trusted Nash but had decided she would stay and ride out the storm, perhaps even throw a grand Hurricane party. She knew her home, which was near the river banks was built on one of the highest points in the city and she felt confident everything would be fine. Josephine and her home made it through the deadly storm. Unfortunately when she stepped outside once it had past she didn't see that downed power line and Josephine was electrocuted. Josephine is buried in cemetery No. 1 at the corner of Prytania and Washington.
