In her last few years, Josie was a much-loved resident of Hanceville Nursing & Rehab Center. In 2022, she became the reigning HNRC Queen and enjoyed serving her “community” in this capacity. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to HNRC in memory of Josie Pruett. Their address is: 420 Main Street NE, Hanceville, AL, 35077. Thanks to all those who have prayed for and loved on Josie through the years!
