Josephine M. Latiz (nee Giordano)

Date of Birth: May 6, 1929 Date of Death: May 28, 2017

Josephine M. Latiz (nee Giordano), age 88, passed away at home on May 28, 2017. She was the beloved wife of the late Michael (1993). Devoted companion of Ed Rogers. Loving mother of Marysue Stentella and her husband, Carl, Teresa Latiz, and Diane Sepkowski and her husband, Anthony. Cherished grandmother of Danielle Movsesian and her husband, Ara, Michael Stentella and his wife, Yana, Jessica Taback and her husband, David, Heather Large and her fiancé, Jonathan Robinson, Alicia Ruiz and her husband, Horacio, and Roland Latiz. Devoted great-grandmother of Nicholas, Ella, Olivia, Ariana, Braylon, Alexis, and Oliver.
Josephine was born and raised in Brooklyn. She was graduated from Lafayette High School. She met her future husband, Michael in 1949, on Valentine’s Day. They married in 1951. Together they moved to Staten Island in 1964. During her working years, she was employed as a medical secretary in Willowbrook State School. In her spare time, Josephine enjoyed making clothing for everyone. She was a perfectionist with everything she did. She was fiercely independent and feisty. Josephine was an avid traveler who enjoyed trips to Atlantic City, and going on cruises. She would tackle many household projects, none too big or too small. Along with her companion Ed, she was an usher at Holy Child R.C. Church. Described by her daughters as extremely friendly, she could make friends anywhere. She was an “Angel” to her husband, especially during his illness during the last four years of his life. Her daughters would like to extend their deepest appreciation to Lana “Our Angel,” who meticulously cared for Josephine during the last six months of her life.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Staten Island University Hospice would be greatly appreciated.
