Josephine 'Josie' Marie Garofalo, 90, of Gainesville, died April 3, 2018 having lived a long and full life.

She also loved sharing her Italian cooking, especially her cutlets, with her family and friends. She was a member of St. Madeleine Catholic Church in High Springs.
She is survived by her daughter, Faye Jackson of Alachua; grandchildren Kenny and Lisa Jackson, and great grandson Eliseo. She was preceded in death by her husband, James Garofalo, and devoted son-in-law Scott Jackson, whom she considered her son.
