Josephine Nastro

July 11, 2018
Resided in Bridgewater, New Jersey


Mrs. Josephine Nastro (nee Dioguardi), dear mother of Diane Canino of Brooklyn, NY, and Barbara Nastro of Whitehouse Station, NJ, passed away on Wednesday, July 11. She was 90 years old. A lifelong resident of Brooklyn, NY, before convalescing at Bridgeway Care & Rehabilitation Center this past January, Jo was married to the love of her life Nicholas Nastro for 50 years before his passing in 1998.

The focal point of Jo’s long life was her family and friends. She was devoted to her daughters; her three grandchildren, Diane’s daughter, Christina Fletcher, Barbara’s sons, Gabriel and Luke Harrison; and her great grandchild, Brian Fletcher III. Jo was also devoted to her sister, Marie Amato and her husband Vincent, her brother Anthony Dioguardi and his wife Carmela, and their children and grandchildren, all of whom survive her. She is also survived by Barbara’s husband, Michael Harrison, and Christina’s husband, Brian Fletcher.

Jo enjoyed carrying on her Italian family traditions with her siblings and her nieces and nephews. She also enjoyed many years in the company of her extended family and friends. She was a devotee of the NY Times crossword puzzle and Jeopardy. And she and Nick traveled a great deal throughout their lives together.

Jo will truly be missed by her family and friends, who now take consolation in knowing she and Nick are together again in heaven. There will be a viewing held on Sunday July 15 from 2-4 pm and again at 7-9pm at Bruce Van Arsdale Funeral Home 111 N. Gaston Avenue Somersville NJ. On Monday there will be a Mass held at Saint Bernards Clairvaux Church 500 US-22 Bridgewater NJ. An interment will follow at the Moravian Cemetery.
