Celebrating the life of
April 12, 2021 - July 13, 2023
Josephine “The Tyrant” Marie Boswell blessed the world with her arrival on April 12, 2021. Her family’s lives were collectively shattered when she passed away the evening of July 13, 2023 in her hometown of Savannah, Georgia. She is survived by her parents Kassandra “Mommy” and Lee “Daddy” Boswell, her grandparents Linda “Nama” and Gary “Pop-pop” Gober, her Aunt Nicole “Nikik” Pelky, her Uncle Thomas “Tamos” Ferrer, numerous other aunts, uncles and extended family members.
Josephine’s presence commanded the attention of anyone present wherever she went. Her natural intelligence and consciously-taught empathy outweighed most adults and allowed her to be the ringleader of most of the mischief occurring at Chunks Learning Center where her and her best friends (frenemies when the mood struck) Amali & Camille have been attending since they were less than six months old.
Josephine’s impact on the world has been immeasurable and demonstrated most by the friends and family that have come to Lee and Kassandra’s side in the intervening minutes, hours and days to voice and show their support with hugs, tears, food, drink and most importantly, by sharing stories about Josephine. The family cannot begin to express how important that has been, and will continue to be, in the dark times that are sure to follow.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 4:00 pm on Tuesday, July 18, 2023 at Christ Church Anglican, 2020 Bull St, Savannah, GA 31401. The Celebration of Life will be followed by a short visitation and then reception in the adjacent room. Due to the circumstances, children are asked not to attend the service or reception. However, childcare for children under the age of 13 will be provided during that time as needed.
Josephine’s graveside service will be held at 9:30 am on Wednesday, July 19, 2023 at Greenwich Cemetery, 330 Greenwich Rd, Savannah, GA 31404. Due to the circumstances, children will not be allowed at the graveside service and childcare is not available. Afterwards, the family will be having a late breakfast/brunch and anyone attending the graveside service is welcome to join them.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to a charity that will provided at the services.
My condolences to the family. This is heartbreaking and if there is anything that I can do, please let me know. I am here for whatever you need

I cannot begin to imagine the pain Kassandra and Lee are going through. I ask God to put his hand on both of you and give you the strength to bear this pain. God has a plan and we may not understand it, but, we have to endure. Don't lose sight of the Lord, because Josephine is in his arms now. Think of her as an angel that has just gone home.
