Josephine Ann, daughter of Alfred and Mary (Knott) Boeck, was born March 29, 1933, in Manilla, Iowa. She grew up in Manilla and graduated from Manilla High School in 1949. Jo then worked at Longnecker’s Poultry.

   Josephine was united in marriage with Ramon Conrad Lingle on February 1, 1950 at the Lutheran Parsonage in Manilla. The couple lived on a couple of farms until 1976 when they purchased their first 80 acres. They raised eight children of their own and were the parents to many other children over the years. Some of these children were Cliff Waterbury (Vicki); David Achey and through him Elaine Orcutt, Darrell Paulson and Diane Lahr and their families. All of the children who passed through this family felt very blessed to have been a part of their home.

Jo and Ray lived together on their farm near Manilla until no longer able. They moved together to the Manilla Manor Nursing Home in February of 2012.
