  • Mrs. Josephine Netti, age 82, a lifelong Herkimer and Little Falls resident, passed away on Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2012, at Faxton-St. Luke’s Healthcare, with the love and support of her family.
    Josephine was born in Little Falls on May 4, 1930, the daughter of the late Theodore and Pasquelina (Brienza) Ciano. She was educated in Little Falls schools and on June 12, 1948, she married Nicholas R. Netti at St. Joseph’s Church in Little Falls, with whom she shared 64 years of happiness and unconditional love before his passing on July 17, 2012. Josephine spent more than 25 years working at Yetty’s, making the bread, rolls and pizza shells with the same pride and love as when baking them for her own family. As the backbone of the family, Josephine was devoted to taking care of her husband, children and grandchildren. She enjoyed the simple pleasures of looking after her home, tending to her flower garden, cooking and baking. Sunday dinners were special to her. She loved being with her family every Sunday for pasta and meatballs. She will be missed by her beloved cat, Jackie, whom she adored. Josephine was a member of Sts. Anthony and Joseph Parish.
    Josephine is survived by her beloved family: her sons, Theodore Netti, of California, Nicholas J. Netti and wife, Cheryl, of Herkimer, and Salvatore Netti and wife, Katy, of Herkimer; her daughters, Barbara Netti, of Herkimer, Felicia Netti, of Mohawk, and Sylvia Lowell and husband, Scott, of Herkimer; her cherished grandchildren, Theodore Tuzzolino and wife, Verenice, Danica and Nicholas A.
