Old Woman Josie, out near the car lot, is a resident living on the edges of town and next door to You and your trailer. Her home is the informal shelter for local Angels, who help her with various household chores and protect her from things such as creeping fear. The black one helped change her porch light. She is the only person the angels have communicated with. As a result, her house is always surrounded by a halo of bright heavenly light. When the angels left in Yellow Helicopters, she feared she had bored them, but they came back to protect her.
She used to sing in the Night Vale opera house when she was younger. She also used to be on the same bowling team as Cecil, but the two have spent less time together due to the discovery of the miniature civilization beneath the Desert Flower Bowling Alley and Arcade Fun Complex. When she spoke to Cecil during Yellow Helicopters she did not even know that he had started dating Carlos.
She seems to have a counterpart in Desert Bluffs by the name of Grandma Josephine.
