Josephine Ferrro Cuccia a/k/a Mama Jo a/k/a mom passed away on Tuesday. So grateful we were able to celebrate her 100th birthday with family and dear friends a few weeks ago.


The Wake for my mom will be at Perazzo’s Funeral Home, 199 Bleecker Street  from 2pm to 5pm and 6pm to 8pm on Monday, May 22.

There will be a funeral Mass on Tuesday morning at Our Lady of Pompeii Church at 10:30am. It is across the street from Perazzo’s Funeral Home.

Then the family and close friends will head to St. John’s Cemetery in Queens for a final goodbye.

In lieu of flowers, please send a donation in Mama Jo’s name to Paul Magnus Foundation, in memory of her great grandson, Paulie, who passed away on January 7, 2023 at the age of 2 1/2, to keep alive my mom’s commitment to helping others that lives on through her 4 children, 14 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.
