Josephine is the youngest of four children. The Romeo family migrated to Plainfield NJ in 1947. In 1953 she married Rocco Mileto in Tresilico, Italy and returned to NJ and started a family. Josephine was like no other, she will be most remembered for her quick wit, lively sense of humor and infectious laugh. Josephine was a little lady with a big personality that you couldn’t help but be drawn to. Josephine adored her family and always made sure they were safe, happy and healthy, being with them and all who loved her was her ultimate happiness. She truly was the center of our family.
