Rest in Peace: Josephine Streiner

Post Thumb:


jos - Rest in Peace: Josephine StreinerIt’s a really tearful day for fans of George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead. Just hours after announcing the passing of Bill Hinzman, even more sad news has come our way.

Born in 1918, Russ and Gary Streiner’s mother, Josephine Streiner, has passed away. Josephine (pictured right) played one of the ghouls in the film, and it was her car that Barbra wrecked while trying to escape Hinzman’s graveyard ghoul.

We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to offer our sincerest condolences to Josephine’s friends, family, and constituents. Rest in peace, madam, and thank you for helping to feed the creative fires of a bunch of crazy filmmakers back in 1968 who would go on to create one of the most important films of our time.
