She married in 1962, while working in the accounting department at the Farmers & Mechanics Bank in Burlington City, where she was employed until 1966.
She did not return to work until 2000, when she was accepted by the Burlington City Police Department as a crossing guard, her daughter said.
"She had been widowed for quite a while," she said, "and the opportunity came up. It was close to home, dealing with kids, something she loved to do."
Mrs. Osborne was a member of the parent-teacher association at St. Paul elementary school in Burlington from 1967 through 1994.
She did that "to provide more things for the children who went to school there," her daughter said.
"That was something both my parents did. My father ran the CYO program at St. Paul for over 20 years.
"He coached basketball," mostly for high school students, she said, "but he ran the entire program."
Besides her daughter Theresa, Mrs. Osborne is survived by sons Robert J. and Michael; daughters Christy Osborne and Kathleen Hubbs; six grandchildren; and a brother.
