Josephina Vos

Josephina Vos was born on April 27, 1790 in Lutheria and is an only child.

Josephina grew up spending most of her time in her parents' small clothing and repair shop. Despite their modest business, her parents provided a comfortable lifestyle and supported her education. At the age of fifteen, Josephina pursued her passion for fashion, she inherited from her parents, by enrolling in a trade school in Germany. Throughout her studies, she had the opportunity to travel to France, England, and Italy, visiting cities such as London, Paris, Milan, and Naples. These experiences inspired her and helped her develop her skills in the latest fashion trends. Josephina became well-known for her refined knowledge and unique style, earning her critical acclaim. Despite the potential for an extensive career, she decided to return to Lutheria to take over her parents' store.

When Josephina turned eighteen, she inherited the family store which at the time specialized mostly in repairs. However, she had bigger ambitions - she wanted to bring the latest international fashion to Kilden and offer both affordable and luxurious clothing options. Her plan was a hit and the store transformed into a fashion boutique that gained popularity both locally and beyond. Despite the success, profits remained limited due to the need to import most of the fabrics and clothes while still keeping the prices reasonable. Additionally, Josephina generously donates clothes to charity to help clothe the poor and homeless. Josephina met Antonius Lutz while he was active in charity through his church in Lutheria. The couple began dating and quickly fell in love.

Antonius and Josephina got married on October 18, 1810, at St. Mary's Chapel after a brief courtship. Their wedding was attended by Josephina's and Antonius' parents, friends, colleagues, and business partners. After the wedding, Josephina moved into Lutz Farm with Antonius, but she continued to work at her shop in Lutheria actively.

Following Antonius and Josephina's wedding, Lutz farm encountered significant challenges. The demand for their products decreased, the harvest was underwhelming, and an epidemic ravaged their livestock. Despite these setbacks, Josephina was able to rescue the estate by utilizing the earnings from her store and trusted business partners. However, it resulted in a small debt, making it even harder for the estate to survive. Besides this, there was no heir to the estate and Josephina had trouble conceiving. It took over ten years before she became pregnant.

Bernardus Theodorus Lutz, known as Bernd or Bernard, was born on February 8, 1822, as the first child of Antonius Lutz and Josephina Lutz-Vos at Lutz Farm in Vöhren. Josephina and Antonius had been trying to conceive for a long time and were overjoyed when Bernardus was finally born. This was not only a blessing for the family but also meant that they had an heir to the estate.

Lisa Lutz was born on May 5, 1828, on the Lutz estate in Vöhren. Her older brother Bernardus, who was 6 at the time, was also present at her birth.

Lisa Lutz and Frederik Keller got married on May 24th, 1845 at St. Mary's Chapel after a long courtship. Lisa's parents, her brother, and Frederik's extensive family were all in attendance at the wedding. After the wedding, Lisa moved to the Tenvenn estate to live with Frederik and assist in managing the estate with him and his parents.

Bernardus and Helena tied the knot on July 1st, 1851, about a year after welcoming their first child. The wedding ceremony took place at St. Mary's Chapel in Lutheria, with guests including Bernardus' parents, Josephina and Antonius Lutz, as well as colleagues and friends. Following the wedding, Helena relocated to Lutz farm to live with Bernardus, and she took on farming duties while also working part-time as a nurse at the local hospital in Lutheria.

However, during their first year of marriage, Helena discovered that Bernardus had a tough and at times aggressive side, which she believed stemmed from his fear of losing the farm and the constant struggle to survive. But despite Bernardus' occasional petulant behavior, their love for each other remained strong. Helena's nurturing and empathetic personality enabled her to calm Bernardus down during difficult moments.

Even in her senior years, Josephina has a natural beauty over her. Even at the farm, she wears fancy clothes and encourages her daughter-in-law and grandchildren to do so. She has long dark-grey hair, which she keeps in a bun, dark green-brown eyes and a soft smile. She loves to joke around and tease her much-beloved family.

Family

The Lutz family is a group of farmers who predominantly reside in the Vöhren district. The majority of family members either currently live or have previously lived on the Lutz estate, a small farmhouse where cattle and crops are bred. This property has been owned by the family for generations, with the eldest child inheriting it. Most family members tend to work until old age and stay on the estate until they pass away. Many farmers in the area struggle to earn a living, yet they work hard to keep their farms running out of pride and respect for their old traditions, even if it means personal loss.
