Josee was born in Rutshuru, Zaire, Africa on August 1, 1963, the daughter of Pierre-Claver Nkusi and Maria Mukabatsinda. A selfless soul, she was always about making others feel loved and feel special. A devout Catholic all her life, she was constantly praying for everybody and anybody she cared about. She will always be missed, but will continue to live inside our hearts forever.

Also surviving are her three sons Marc, Frederic, and Patric Germay all of Kalamazoo and her brother Alphonse Nkusi of Gisenyi, Rwanda, Africa.
