Josephine Precourt Obituary

     Josephine Precourt, 76, a resident of Richfield, passed away following a long illness on February 6, 2024 at St. Luke’s Medical Center in Twin Falls.

     Josephine was born on April 29, 1947 in Boston, Mass., to William Brauneis and Grace (Homer) Brauneis.  She was raised in Mansfield, Mass. and had fun childhood stories to share. 

     Josephine married Wilfrid Precourt (they shared 41 years together) and they raised their family in Taunton, Mass., where she also pursued nursing school – a career she loved.

     Later she moved to Idaho and was known by most as “Grandma Jo”, a role she cherished because she adored her grandchildren.

     Grandma Jo was kind hearted, caring and patient.  She always had time to listen, share her crochet and knitting skills, color, read, bake, learn a new video game and of course play Bingo! 

Grandma Jo had a sass and fight in all she did including playing cards with her friends and family. As mom she made ordinary days special with Mystery Rides, music and ice cream stands.

     Laughter and family were a focus in her life and she is already missed.

     She is survived by: her three children – Jennifer Thornton; Mathew (Maggie) Precourt; and Aimee (Mike) Durand; her grandchildren – Thomas Kliss, Tyler Kliss, Jesse Kliss, Maxine Durand, Mathew Durand, Sam Durand, Michael Durand, Andrew Durand and Alyssa Durand; one great granddaughter – Violet Durand; her brother – Bill (Sandy) Brauneis; and sister – Judy (Charlie) Cargill.

     A memorial graveside service will be held on Friday, March 29, 2024 at 1:00 pm at the Richfield Cemetery with a celebration of life to follow at the Richfield Senior Center.

     Cremation arrangements are under the care and direction of Demaray Funeral Service – Shoshone Chapel.
