Josephine T. (Pascucci) DePaoli, “Josie” 94, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 at Christopher House in Worcester after a period of declining health, surrounded by her loving family.
Josephine was born and raised in Worcester, daughter of the late Biagio and Grazia M. (Lopriore) Pascucci and graduated from Worcester Girls Trade. She married, Alfred C. DePaoli, Sr., “Tootsie” on June 2, 1945 until his passing on June 25, 1973. She lived in her family home in Shrewsbury for over 60 years. She leaves behind their three children, son Alfred C. DePaoli, “Freddy” and his wife Linda of Woburn, daughter Janet Noonan and her husband Michael of Sutton, son John C. DePaoli and his wife Nancy of Wilbraham. She was a loving grandmother to Gina DePaoli of Burlington, Laura DePaoli of Boston, Andrea McDonough and her husband Brian of Woburn, Jeffrey DePaoli of Burbank, CA and Gregory DePaoli and his wife Veronica of Northborough, Ashley Lehner and her husband John of Sutton , Patrick and Kevin Noonan of Sutton, Anthony and Bianca DePaoli of Wilbraham. She cherished her new great-grandchildren Gabriel and Elizabeth DePaoli of Northborough.

Josie always had a smile on her face, was warm, fun loving and loved ballroom dancing. She was a great cook and enjoyed making homemade Italian style pizza, spaghetti and meatballs with raisins, and pizzelle cookies. Everyone in the neighborhood loved her pizza and was included in all the social gatherings. Nobody left her home without eating something and had something to bring home. She had nurturing and compassionate ways about her and believed that family and friends were the most important. She had room in her heart for everyone she met.
She worked at Telechron, Slovin Slacks, and Frohock-Stewart until she retired. She joined the Shrewsbury Senior Center and went on all their bus and casino trips with friends and neighbors, and enjoyed vacationing at Cape Cod with family and friends during summers.
