Josephine was the first of her siblings to bravely immigrate to the US from Italy at the age of 19. She quickly established a rich and fulfilling life. A talented seamstress, she worked in the Garment District making samples for well- known designers. After she retired, she became a volunteer in the St. Anthony parish and could be found most days exercising and dancing at the Oceanside Senior Center.

Josephine was especially proud of her close family life, raising two children with her first husband, and after being widowed, remarrying and spending over 20 years with her second. Josephine cherished her grandchildren, even learning to text and face time so that she could stay in close contact with them. Josephine was a petite lady, with a huge personality. Her spunk, wisdom, and laughter will be sorely missed by her family and her friends.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Catholic Charities, Oceanside Senior Center or St. Anthony’s Parish Outreach, programs that were dear to Nonna.
