Josephine (Guiseppina) was born legally blind in the little town of Luco di Marsi, Abruzzo, Italy, the oldest of 4 children. At 14, her parents died in an earthquake and she became the "parents" of her 3 younger siblings. She married Vincent (Vincenzo) Marchetti around 1900 and the couple had 9 children. However, only 4 lived to adulthood (Lawrence, Daniel, Emma, and Viola). She emigrated to the U.S. in 1907 with their oldest son, Lawrence. They lived briefly in New York, then settled in Pennsylvania. After Vincent's death in 1950, Josephine moved to Long Beach, California to be near her daughters.
