Obituary

AGOZZINO

Josephine E. Agozzino (nee Marinucci) of Philadelphia, passed away on November 3rd 2020, at the age of 91. Josephine was the loving wife of the late Peter P. Agozzino for 63 wonderful years. Josephine was the loving mother to Joan Edwards (the late Robert), Dorena Horan (the late Arthur), and Richard Agozzino (Noreen). Josephine also leaves behind a loving legacy in her two grandchildren; Lauran Horan and A.J. Horan and her dear Niece Rita Beaver.

Josephine grew up in South Philadelphia and was a member of what many call the Greatest Generation. Her family came from Abruzzi Italy, and Josephine was fluent in Italian. In 1946 she met Peter P. Agozzino and they were married shortly after in 1948. Peter went on to serve honorably in both WWII and the Korean War with the United States Navy. Josephine had a deep love of all people, especially strangers. She would often befriend people that were homeless or down on their luck; feeding and sheltering them back to health. Josephine will always be remembered for her kind heart, intellect and curiosity, her devotion to praying the rosary, and crocheting afghan blankets. Josephine was truly happiest when she was surrounded by the love of her family.

Private family services will be held for Josephine. Relatives and friends are invited to reach out to the Edwards, Horan, and Agozzino families to offer words of support or a memory of Josephine.
