On Saturday, January 2, 2021, our beloved mother, grandmother, sister and friend, Josephine Carfaro, suddenly passed away at age 103. She was the loving mother of Angelo Chiani of Naples, Fl, grandmother of Alexis Chiani of Denver, CO, and sister of Mildred Sivisky who presently resides at Regency Grande in Dover, NJ. Josephine Carfaro, lovingly known as Sue, was a resident of Regency Grande Nursing Home in Dover, NJ for twelve years who provided daily loving care. She was a life long resident of Dover where she attended high school and was a member of Sacred Heart Church. She was born April 20, 1917 in Dover, NJ to the late Concetta and Samuel Saporitola, Italian immigrants. Sue is predeceased by her siblings Orlando Saporitola, Jenny Panetta, James Saporitola, Mary Gula, Carman Saporitola, Elvina (Larry) Johnson, and her nephew Glen Sivisky.
