A family statement read:  Josephine known to many people as Sandy was the kindest, loving, caring, sincere, mother, grandmother and great grandmother.  She loved her family with all her heart and was always there whenever anyone needed her.  She could make a bad day into the best day.  As she would always say, “Don’t get excited” or “Do what you think is best.”  Her passion in life, besides her family, was her nursing career.  All that knew her, loved her.  She will be sadly missed by all. We are beyond grateful for the care and love and compassion she was given by her caregiver, Madga “Maggie” she loved and took care of Sandy as her own mother.  Maggie will always be part of our family. God bless Sister Maryann Bartelli who never forget Mom.  Her cards always brought a smile to her face.  Words cannot express how grateful we are for Hospice of Orange & Sullivan Counties.  Thank you to Jen, Mary, Amber, Laura and Allysa.  You all went above and beyond for Mom.  Thank you to Tonya and Debbie from Dr. Alam’s office for taking care of Mom and always answering all of our questions.  Rest in peace Mom.  God now has a special angel.  We will never forget you.
