Josephine (Izzo) Antelmi, age 103, formerly of Syracuse, passed away on January 12, 2021 in Bay Village of Sarasota, FL. She was born in Syracuse, NY, daughter of the late Michael and Anna Izzo (Tortorelo) Antelmi. Josephine was a lifelong communicant of St. Daniel’s Church. She was employed by Julius Resnick Pocketbook Factory as a young woman. Josephine was a talented seamstress of drapery and clothing throughout her life, and a dedicated crocheter, well into her 90’s. Her fine work was seen in many homes throughout CNY. Her prize-winning crocheted pieces could be seen at the NYS Fair, where she loved to visit every year until she was 100 years young. Her talents were limitless, and included upholstery, gardening, canning, cooking, and baking. Her handwritten recipes are family treasures. Josephine’s kindness was truly felt by all of those who met her. She was a woman of grace and love and will be missed by so many. She is predeceased by her husband of 55 years, Ribelle Antelmi; daughter, Angelina Joseph; sisters, Frances Ianuzzi and Mary Ventre; brothers, John, Joseph, Louis, Daniel, and Michael. Josephine is survived by her daughter, Anna Marie Antelmi (Melvin Hanson); sons, Rocco Antelmi (Joan) of NC and Michael (Linda) of Florida; son-in-law, Gilbert Joseph (Angelina) of Florida, and a sister, Yolanda Savastano; six grandchildren, Christine, Gregory, Todd, Jessica, Rachel, and Kaitlin; two great grandchildren, Gabriella and Isabella, and many adoring nieces and nephews. Josephine was lovingly cared for by her daughter Anna Marie for over 20 years before relocating to Sarasota, FL. Her family would like to thank the staff at Bay Village of Sarasota for the loving care she received as a resident there.
