Josephine Tinckler older

Feb. 20, 1927 — May 7, 2014

Josephine “Jo” Tinckler was born on Feb. 20, 1927, in Liverpool, England. She passed away peacefully in her home in El Dorado Hills, with her two daughters and one son-in-law present, on May 7, 2014. She was 87 years old.

Jo was the first of four children to Alice and William Joyce. She was 11 years old when World War II broke out and with her family she survived the bombings in Liverpool. She lived in Liverpool until the age of 23, when she decided to see the world and took her first trip to America, by herself, on an ocean liner. During a second visit to the States, she went to Hollywood, Calif., where she and Ken Tinckler, also from England, met and married in 1956. They were married for 53 years.

Jo worked in the British Consulate during the early years of her marriage. She lived in Hollywood for nearly 60 years before moving to El Dorado Hills to be closer to her daughter and son-in-law. She enjoyed acting on stage and in the 1950s was a regular performer at the Pasadena Playhouse in California. She created beautiful quilts (all done by hand) and exquisite needlepoint pieces. She made creative costumes for her girls at Halloween and school plays. She was an avid cook.

Jo carpooled sightless ladies to the Braille Institute and volunteered in her daughter’s school. She became a docent at the Los Angeles Zoo and for years gave zoo tours to school groups and lectured to clubs around the greater Los Angeles area. She took specialized classes, including cooking, stained glass, watercolor and other painting classes, as well harmonica lessons. She also loved doing her crossword puzzles.

Starting in her 40s, and once her girls were through school, Jo became a very successful Real Estate Agent, which was her career for 30 years. During this time she was also very active in the Glendale Quilters Association, volunteered at a battered women’s home and was a regular at the YMCA water aerobic classes.As accomplished as Jo was in so many things, her most enduring legacy was being a wonderful, loving wife, mother, grandmother and mother-in-law. Her family misses her greatly. She was preceded in death by her husband of 53 years, Kenneth W.; her younger brother, Tony Joyce; and her parents. She is survived by her daughter, Carolyn Squires; her son-in-law, Stuart; granddaughters, Alison and Catherine; and her youngest daughter, Alison Payne and son-in-law, L. Mark.

Jo will be forever missed by all who new and loved her.
