Josephine Ann Tullberg

October 9, 2001 ~ December 18, 2020 (age 19)


Josephine Ann Tullberg currently of Appleton, Wi. died on Friday, December 18th, 2020. 

She was born at St Elizabeth Hospital, Appleton, Wi. on October 9th, 2001 and spent the majority of her life in Wausau with her beloved father, Matt Tullberg and her Step Mother Leigh Ann Tullberg.  She attended Wausau area schools including Franklin Elementary School, Horrace Mann Junior High School, Marathon High School, and graduated from Wausau East High School.

Josephine found her vocational niche in Appleton working with children with disabilities.  And she encouraged a following of friends on Facebook.  Those friends were of all ages and from a variety of backgrounds.  

When Josephine entered the room there began a little magic.  She was vivacious, never afraid of telling her opinions, loving of all her family members on both sides of her family, and she was beautiful physically and in her heart..  She demonstrated a strong work ethic both before and after high school.  Josephine enjoyed the activity of making herself stylish and unique and shared her time among her adored sisters, cousins, and friends including special friends, Winter Carlson and Paris Buettner.

Josephine is survived by her father Matthew, step mother, Leigh Ann, birth mother, Jessica Wells and her paternal grandparents, Joette Wheeler and Terry Tullberg, maternal grandparents, Clarke and Tammy Davison.  She is survived by her sisters Isabelle, Eleanor and Lily.  She will be greatly missed by her Aunt Wendy and Aunt Kara, her uncles Corey Defferding and Chuck Tullberg, and her Aunts Cassie and Chelsea and their children.  Her Gramma Lori, Grandpa John (Peggy) and Aunts Kelly, Melissa and Elizabeth will feel the loss of her special presence.

She lost two sisters. Penelope Wells in the year 2016 and Justice Vosters in 2020 which brought her an incalculable amount of grief.  She, however, did not lose her enjoyment of all of life’s adventures.

She, throughout her life, looked forward to spending time with her aunts and cousins from both sides of the family. And she found a special kinship with her cousin, Aleah Tullberg. 

She is missed in ways which cannot be articulated by all members of her family, by extended family as well as by all of her friends and coworkers.


A private family service will be held for Matt’s side of the family and Wausau friends only.  We ask for your respect and cooperation in this regard.
