My Bisnonna (great grandmother) Josephine Gifolio, was one of 6 children. She was born to Italian imigrants, Rosa and Sal Gifoli and very proud of her Italian heritage. In her lifetime she worked as a seamstress and got married when she was 18 years old to Thomas DeCanio, in 1922. She had one child, Shirley DeCanio. My Bisnonna basically just worked, was a wife and raised her daughter. She then got to the point where she couldn't take care of herself and needed full time care. She then died in 1996 at Sierra Vista Retirement Home in Carson City, NV. She now rests in peace with the rest of our Italian family in New Jersey. The roots of where her life first began. I was young when my Bisnonna died & I wish I could have spent more time with her. This was the first death I had ever experience and it was very painful. If I could give advice to anyone, it's to spend more time with the people you love, you never know when they will leave you & then it will be too late. Riposare di pace Bisnonna. Ti voglio bene.
