Josie was born July 18, 2003, in Grand Forks, North Dakota, the daughter of Nancy and Joseph Greenwood. She loved to dance and sing, put on make-up, ride bike with her sisters, attend preschool at Saint Mary’s Project Kids, play lovingly with her many young friends, wrestle her dad, snuggle with her mom, visit her grandparents to feed the horses on the farm, and watch football with her extended family. Josie lost her battle with leukemia the day after Easter in ’07 at the age of 3.

“Each year, Vintage Guitar sponsors Team Josie in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, in memory of my grandniece and the daughter of VG Online Consultant Joe Greenwood, who lost her battle with leukemia in ’07 at the age of 3. On June 2, Team Josie participated in its tenth Relay for Life in Grand Forks, North Dakota.
“The majority of the money is generated each year via a raffle for ‘Josie’ gear offered by our generous advertisers. This is an important charity for us and, to date it has raised more than $116,000. Every penny we raise goes to the charity.”
Alan Greenwood, Founder/Publisher VG mag.
