Josephine "Josie" Gall (Cicirello)

With a heavy heart and tremendous sadness, we announce the passing of the sweetest Mom and kindest friend, Josie Gall.  She peacefully died in her sleep Monday morning September 30th.  She was 94 years old and loved her life.  In her last moments on earth, before she arouse to be with her heavenly Father, she was smiling before He took her Home.  She leaves behind four sons and one daughter, Frank Jr. (Marilyn), Bob (Cari), Bruce, Glen (Karen), Frances Carosso (John).  She is preceded in death by her husband Frank W. Gall Sr..   Dad died in 1995 and she said she missed him everyday, so we know who she is hugging and dancing with right now.

Before the many broken bones and falls, Mom could jitter bug like a professional dancer.  She also was a wonderful seamstress and loved to read books, and became a huge fan of Bingo, but Steve Harvey got top priority when Family Feud was on the television.  

She loved her two sisters very much and was fortunate to have had a closeness with them that was priceless.  Millie Sgro and Mary Cuomo are two of the finest women on this earth.  They loved Mom with an Agape Love that comes from the Holy Spirit.  Mom was very proud of her family and saw only the good in everyone.  We don’t think she ever had a bad word to say about anyone.  She loved her Grandchildren unconditionally: Genine, Nicole, Jennifer (Michael) Melissa (Shawn) David (Callie) Jackie (Kevin) Courtney, Johnny, Michael. Josie lived with her daughter and son-in-law, and her two Grandchildren, Sarah and Nico Carosso, she throughly enjoyed being involved in their lives.  Her son-in-law John, treated her like gold always doting over her, getting her morning coffee and evening yogurt bar.  Josie was very close to all of her children and daughter-in-laws, but we all say Bruce was her favorite. Her fondest recent memory was with her Granddaughter Jackie when she visited from Boston. She also has 12 Great Grandchildren, tons of nephews and nieces, and too many friends from Clover Ridge to count. They all loved her dearly and they are going to miss her Cheese Cake and Grandma’s Chicken. Josie was a homemaker and was proud to say it was a full time job.  She and Dad loved having family around, so we grew up living next door to our cousin’s the Cuomo’s, Billy and Marilyn were a stones throw away, and Bob and Cari lived just minutes away.  Josie made every holiday, birthday, and event fun with lots of Italian food and plenty of laughs, that wit and charm can be seen in her beautiful Granddaughters, just talk with Melissa for a few minutes and she will make you smile.
She was adamant about forgoing a funeral service, and those who knew her and loved her understand completely.  A memorial service will be held to say farewell to this wonderful women, Tuesday October 1st 12:30 at the chapel at Plum Creek Cemetery. Pastor Lance Lecocq from Monroeville Assembly of God Church will be saying a prayer and a few words about Josie.    
God Bless and Hug your Mom today if you haven’t already.
In lieu of flowers please do something kind for an elderly person.  

Love,  The Gall Family

I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Josephine, Frances's mom. She truly was a kind-hearted person, and who always had a smile on her face. I know that she is with her Lord and Savior now, so although there are tears shed on earth, there is rejoicing at the Reunion that is to come.

My heart is saddened to hear of the passing of Francis' dear mother Josephine. She was one of the nicest people that I had the good fortune to meet. God bless Francis and her family. Deepest sympathy and condolences from the Soisson family.

Dear Gall Family,
It is with sadness and wonderful memories to see Josie's obituary. All of you, as her family, have my sincerest sympathy. You don't know who I am, but when I was growing up the Cuomo and Cicirello families were very much a part of my life. Please make sure to let your Aunt Mary and Aunt Millie know of my contact with you. They I'm sure will always have remembered Emma and Lee Tweddle, my parents. Your Uncle Angelo's mom, Antoinette, was my mom's best friend and the best cook, whose Italian food has never been equaled. I'm truly sorry to have to make contact with you this way, but I hope it will be a comfort to all of you to know Josie meant lasting memories in my mind and heart. Helen
