Josephine Louise Dulitz, age 99 of Brownsdale, Minnesota, passed away Friday, April 17, 2020, at Mayo Clinic Health System in Austin, Minnesota. Josephine was born October 13, 1920 in Austin, Minnesota, to Robert and Bertha (Reinke) Dulitz.

Josephine lived on the Dulitz family farm with her parents, Robert and Bertha and her brother, Arnold until moving into Brownsdale. She was a wonderful care giver for many people during her life, including her parents until their passing. Josephine loved her church, puzzles, playing cards with friends, crocheting, watching “Wheel of Fortune,” gardening and canning. She made the best dill pickles!
