Josephine Camilli was a remarkable woman. You never heard her utter a bad word about anyone. She was the true meaning of loving unconditionally. She lived in the same home in Pleasantville, New York most of her life, first with her parents and then with her own family. Her home was always open, welcoming family and friends who made up her extended family. There was always room at her table; lunch, dinner or a cup of coffee or tea. She loved to fill her home with laughter. She owned her own business, a yarn shop in Pleasantville for many years called Yarn Bazaar. She loved to knit and her designs were absolutely beautiful. You could not wear anything she created without getting multiple compliments from complete strangers! She was also active in her church for many years as a member of The Rosary Altar Society. She cherished her family. Her most cherished times in her life were her visits, vacations, holidays and FaceTime calls with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Josephine was predeceased by her husband Arthur Camilli; her parents Carmela and Frank Carnabucci; sister Tina Carnabucci Berte (husband John); and her brothers Frank and Peter Carnabucci. In addition, her sister-in-law Emma Camilli Flewwellin (husband Ronald); sister-in-law Fran Camilli Bourne (husband Jack); brother-in-law Henry Camill (wife Marion); and nephews John and Peter Carnabucci, and niece Debra Flewwellin Giusti.
