Josephine Domenici

On Saturday, September 10, 2022, we lost our beloved Josephine Domenici (Racanelli).
She was the beloved daughter of the late Michael & Marianne Racanelli, the loving wife of Mario Domenici, and sister to the late Vito Racanelli (Rosaria). 
She leaves behind her beloved sisters, Rina (Vito) Mossa, Rosa (Leo) Riccardi, Angela (Nick) Menolascina, Vincenza Barbanente, Helen (Filippo) Ruffolo, and Isabella (Tony) Pitrello. 

Josephine was the cherished aunt and great aunt to many nieces & nephews and was known to them as "Zia Pina."
She was known for her generosity, loving ways, and adventurous spirit.
In addition, she had a sharp sense of style. 
She was beautiful, fun, loving, and always the best-dressed person in the room. 
Josephine made us laugh a lot and was always there with encouraging words and a helping hand.   
She was always willing to help her family and friends with whatever she could do and she was the best babysitter ever!
She fought a good fight against breast cancer until the end and left a beautiful legacy and testimony of the love of Jesus Christ.
Josephine will be greatly missed.
