Josephine, better known as Josie, was born in Palermo, Sicily in 1909 to Antony and Teresa Dovi Magnasco. They arrived in Madison in 1911 and settled in the Greenbush neighborhood. After her mother died, young Josie turned to the women in the neighborhood to learn how to prepare meals as her mother had. In 1927, she married Ernest Schuepbach, a young Swiss farmer from New Glarus. They raised seven children while farming in nearby communities.
