Alabama - Josephine Mudrzynski, 94, of Alabama, passed away on Wednesday, September 30, 2015 at the Genesee County Nursing Home in Batavia where she had been a resident since December 7, 2013.

She was born in the Town of Oakfield, on July 4, 1921 to the late Anthony and Mary (Horzempa) Mudrzynski.

After high school, she was employed by Curtis Wright Corp, during WWII and later attended Delhi College where she took a nursing course and, upon graduation, started working at Genesee Memorial Hospital in 1950.  She retired in 1985 with 35 years of service.  She worked the 2nd shift (3-11) on the hospital's second floor. 

During the blizzard of ‘77, she worked six days of double shifts as she couldn't get home and other employees couldn't get in to work.
