Josephine Lucille Scurles, age 90, of Toledo, passed away May 15, 2020 at Hospice of Northwest Ohio in Toledo. Josephine was born October 19, 1929 in Eatonton, Georgia to Roger Hunter and Roberta Barnet. She was employed with the Lucas County Job and Family Services as a child care provider. Josephine was also a leader of a Girl Scout troop. She was an active member at Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church where she served on the Mother's Board as well as sung in the choir. She enjoyed to sing one of her favorite praise songs when asked by family members. In her youth, Josephine enjoyed playing basketball and later sharing stories with her family about her pivoting moves and having the opportunity to travel with the team. One of her favorite past times was embroidering and giving her creations to family, friends and church members. Josephine always enjoyed taking a trip to Wendy's for a Frosty and receiving lemon flavored snacks. She looked forward to attending bible study, mission meeting and going to Home Town Buffet with her sister-in Christ, Minister Ella Williams.
