Josephine Virginia Colasessano, 85, passed away on Dec. 24, 2017 at Fazio's Elder Care in Monongah.

She was the owner and backbone of Colasessano's Carry-Out for 51 years. Her pride in her product was eminent by the many loyal customers that frequented her establishment. Josephine loved her family and one of her many joys was cooking Sunday dinners for family and friends. She enjoyed traveling, shopping, and always took pride in her appearance.

She is survived by several nieces and nephews, a special niece Filomena Oliverio of Clarksburg and nephew, Joe Colaciello of Waldorf, Maryland.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions to be made to Fairmont Catholic Grade School.
