TROPEA, Giuseppina “Josephine”

Josephine was a big Kenny Rogers fan along with the television show of Dallas.  The show always kept her wondering what JR would be up to next. Watching television in the house was not easy with a husband and 3 boys as sports dominated the television on many evenings.  Josephine enjoyed long walks in the morning with her husband and spending time with her family.  Her excitement in life grew with her first grandchild in 2001. Olivia was the first grandchild followed by Anthony in 2001 and Joshua in 2003.

TrulyApart of my heart

Josephine was a loving mother and wife. She grew up in Sambiase, Italy and immigrated to Niagara Falls, ON Canada on November of 1957. At the age of 16, her brother Joseph, sister Joanne, mother Elena and father Domenic settled in Niagara Falls, ON to begin a new journey of life to escape the economic difficulties of Italy. Josephine was married on July of 1962 to Domenico Tropea from Sambiase, Italy. Domenic served in the Army for many years and was stationed in Germany prior to settling in Niagara Falls, ON Canada with Josephine. In 1964 they had their first child named Frank followed by Gino in 1967 and finally Anthony in 1970.

I belong with you, you belong with me, you’re my forever sweetheart!
My mom has taught me so much in life. I appreciate all of the things that my mom has done and now I find myself doing the same things for my kids.
I love my Nonna…she always made me feel very special. There was always enough food to eat, cheek pinching, hugs and kisses.

Nonna makes me always feel special when I come over to her house. She is always looking out for everyone.

She always had a strong passion for family with her love and caring nature. Her passion for life was never hidden.
