Josephine retired from Remington Rand in Bridgeport after many years of dedicated service and along with her husband was the owner of Cappy & Son Pool Tables in Bridgeport. She enjoyed going down to the store and interacting with the customers. She loved to socialize and would always be ready at the drop of a hat to go out and eat at a restaurant. She enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and taking trips to the casino. But above all things she loved to cook her famous meatballs and pasta sauce. She was a woman of faith who was very religious and prayed daily. She was the best mother anyone could ask for and will be missed by her family and all who knew her.
