Obituary for Josephine Buzzelli

Josephine Buzzelli, 96, passed away on Nov. 9, 2017.
Josephine was born in Pittsburgh, PA to the late Louis and Angeline (Carlino) Rivelli and lived in the Akron area most of her life. She was a faithful member of Blessed Trinity Catholic Church and graduated from North High School.
Josephine lived her faith-based life with grace and dignity. She found great joy cooking Sunday spaghetti dinners. A gifted baker, Josephine prepared boundless trays of Christmas cookies each year. The pizzelles, gobs and cannoli were anticipated and savored all year long. Shopping was a favorite pastime, and she took pride in finding the perfect gift for her loved ones. Josephine spent countless hours sharing stories of her life, imparting wisdom to her children and grandchildren. Above all, Josephine was lovingly devoted to her Italian family. Our beloved mother, grandmother and friend will forever be in our hearts.
In addition to her parents, Josephine is preceded in death by her husband, Ralph J. Buzzelli; and brother, John Rivelli. She is survived by children, Ralph A. (Ruth) Buzzelli, John (Theona) Buzzelli, Ron (Sue) Buzzelli and Joanne (Dean) Mayors; grandchildren, Debbie (Joe), Jim (Gayle), David (Brandy), Michael (Stacie), Michelle (John), Joe (Paulina), Emily (Brent), Natalie (Sam), Laura (Sam), Rebecca and Lindsay; 11 great-grandchildren; sisters-in-law Carolyn Buzzelli and Mary Buzzelli; special friend, Judy Wilson; and many loving nieces and nephews.
The Buzzelli Family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at the Village of St. Edward and VNS Hospice Service and to friend and caregiver, Peggy Lombardo for all their loving and compassionate care.
Mass of Christian Burial will be Tuesday, 10:00 am at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, 300 E. Tallmadge Ave., Akron, OH 44310 with Rev. Father Joseph Warner and Rev. Father Norman Douglas, Celebrants. Visitation will be Monday, 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm at H B Moore Funeral Home (corner of N. Main St. and Mildred Ave.).
