Josephine Greene is Hershel Greene's first wife and the mother to Maggie Greene. Josephine died and Hershel eventually remarried to his second wife, Annette. She is mentioned in the Season 2 episode, "Judge, Jury, Executioner".
Not much is known about Josephine's life before or as the outbreak. She presumably helped work on the farm along with the rest of the Greene family and tend to what needed to be done (such as caring for the livestock). She dealt with Hershel's alcoholism and frequently made him sleep on the downstairs couch when he returned drunk from bars. Josephine bought back Hershel's pocket watch after he had given it away for alcohol. She returned it to him after he sobered up.
Josephine is seen through a portrait inside the Greene house.

Josephine is Hershel's first wife, and Maggie's mother. She is stated by Hershel to be tough and strong, and she frequently made him sleep on the couch whenever he comes home late or drinking at night, showing that she cared a lot about her husband. She died before the apocalypse occurred. After her death, Hershel marries another woman, much to Maggie's dismay. From then on, Hershel and Maggie had a rough relationship until Beth was born.
Maggie and Josephine were very close. Maggie clearly loved her mother very much, and according to Hershel, Maggie is a lot like her mother. Maggie was also very devastated when her mother died.
- She is one of the few characters to have died before the apocalypse began.
