Services for Josephine N. Cotton, a native of Baltimor County, will be held at 2 p.m. today at St. Andrews Episcopal Church in New Castle, Maine.
Mrs. Cotton, who was 85, died Oct. 7 at her home in Medomak, Maine, after a brief illness.
Born in Reisterstown, she attended the Bryn Mawr School and was a graduate of Chatham Episcopal Institute in Virginia. She studied piano at the Peabody Institute, and after her debut in Baltimore she studied piano and French at the Sorbonne.
She was a 1930 graduate of the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing and later studied Italian in Rome.
The former Josephine Norris married Dudley P. Cotton in Baltimore in 1931. Two years later, the couple moved to Damariscotta, Maine, to raise minks. Ten years after that, they moved to Weston, Conn., where Mrs. Cotton worked as director of psychiatric occupational therapy at the Westport Sanitarium.
