Josephine came to Niagara Falls with her family as a baby, and graduated from Niagara Falls High School. On November 15, 1952, she married John D. Signorelli at St. Joseph's Church. Mr. Signorelli predeceased her on April 23, 1983, after 31 memorable years together. Josephine retired from Niagara Geriatrics Center where she was the lead baker for many years.

(Sarah) Signorelli and Daniel Russo; great-grandchildren, Selena Jo and John Michael Signorelli; and her brother, Mario (Sue) (late Jeannie) Capannola.
