Tessa Christine Kathleen Joseph, 30, died on Thursday, October 4, 2018 at her residence. Tessa was born on September 4, 1988 in Hastings, MI , the beloved daughter of Stephanie Beatty Joseph and the late Gerard Henry Joseph. She graduated from Central Catholic High School in 2007 and West Liberty University in 2011. She was an employee of the Health Plan, a member of Corpus Christi Catholic Church and Our Lady of Lebanon. Tessa was a member of the Ohio County Democratic Women and Narcotics Anonymous. Tessa struggled with addiction, but fought the dragon as best as she could. All of those who knew and loved her will miss her more than words can say. Her sense of humor, her fashion statements, and her strong compassion for the underdog are just a few things her circle of friends lost when Tessa flew to the Angels.
