Obituary for Josephine E. Zirilli

Josephine E. (nee Scairato), age 92, May 25, 2020
Beloved wife of the late Dominick A. Zirilli. Devoted mother of Joseph (Pat) Zirilli. Lawrence Zirilli, Janet Zirilli, Dominick (Lorraine) Zirilli, Stephen ( Carol) Zirilli, Paul Zirilli and the Late William Zirilli. Loving grandmother, great grandmother, aunt and friend to many.

Josephine's first love was to her family and friends and will be greatly missed. She insisted on feeding everyone who came into her home. Puzzles, playing scratch off lottery tickets, feeding the birds and playing Pokeno were some of her favorite things to do. Josephine also loved to work, up until almost the age of 90 when she retired from Aramark, working in the Money Room for Phillies and Eagles Games. South Philly through and through, a big supporter of the Police and Firefighters; and of course the Phillies and Eagles.

A social distancing viewing will be held on Friday Morning, May 29th , 9:30 to 10:45 A.M. at St. Richard’s Church, 18th and Pollock Streets, Philadelphia, PA. 19145 . Funeral Mass and burial private. In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Richard’s Church in Josephine’s memory would be appreciated. Share condolences at

My deepest sympathy to the family. Josie was a wonderful kindhearted lady. I remember going over her house to eat on Good Friday with the gang from C&T cold cuts. I will keep the family in my prayers. May God bless all.

We would like to send our deepest sympathies to the Zirilli Family. We were blessed to have known Josephine. It was always fun to visit with her when she came to Las Vegas to see Larry. Her sense or humor and her love of life was an inspiration. May God give her eternal rest and may our prayers help comfort you all. With deepest Love from her friends in Las Vegas.

My deepest sympathy goes out to the entire Zirilli family, you are all in my thoughts and prayers. As a long time friend of her son Lawrence, I had the opportunity to personally know of Josephine’s genuine kindness and huge heart. Larry’s mom always treated me like family, always worried that I had enough to eat! A matriarch of the family, she will be sadly missed. Her spirit will live on in your hearts forever and know that God will watch over her and provide her eternal peace in heaven.
