She was always there to give tips on how to prepare almost anything as she was a truly great Italian cook. Josie regularly attended mass at St. Joseph’s Church, was a lover of coffee, chocolates and Boston Cream donuts and enjoyed traveling and watching TV, especially when she could try and see a glimpse of her granddaughter that works in entertainment. She is survived by her daughter, Nancy Sheek and her husband John, of Wethersfield, CT; granddaughter Katie Jo Sheek of Los Angeles, CA and several nieces, nephews, caring friends, neighbors and caregivers. As the youngest of 7 children, she was predeceased by: Anna Avampato, Mary DiMartino, Pat Amico, Lucy Ruby, Lillian Milano, and Michelina Simonin.
