Josephine was born on July 24, 1940 in Arnaudville. She was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and friend who touched the hearts of everyone she met with her infectious smile and unwavering kindness.
Buin's hobbies were a large part of her life and she loved picking pecans every season.

One thing that was always evident was Buin's love of cooking and she could often be found in the kitchen whipping up some delicious southern comfort food.
