Josephine F. Menna Obituary
Josephine F. Menna

Red Bank - Josephine F. Menna, of Red Bank, passed away peacefully on February 14, 2018. Josie was born in Long Branch to Joseph and Dolores Ferrogine and has lived in Red Bank for the past 67 years. She was a retired hairdresser and homemaker who was very involved in the community and St. Anthony of Padua Church. Josie was a Past President of St. Anthony's PTA, a Past Treasurer of the Regional Diocese PTA for three years, she volunteered at Riverview Medical Center, was Secretary of St. Ann's Society and chaired the cancer drive and helped with the heart and leukemia drives and in 1992 she was the President of St. Ann's Service Associated Sisters of Lucy Filipini ASLF.

At the age of 78 Josie began a new career working as a lunch aide at the Fair Haven School District. She taught the students to be kind and thoughtful, reminding them to help their parents around the house.

Josie's second job was driving friends around to their appointments. She would prop herself up on pillows to see over the steering wheel and hit the streets rain or shine. She not only was their driver, but their companion.

In the center of Josie's life was her family. She joined her beloved husband Tommy Menna, whom she was married to for 32 years, on Valentine's Day. She is survived by her sons, Gary and Greg, who always made sure she was treated with dignity and respect; her seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. She never forgot anyone's birthday.

Visitation will be Friday, February 16th, from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Thompson Memorial Home, 310 Broad St, Red Bank. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday, February 17th at 11:30 a.m. at St. Anthony of Padua Church, 121 Bridge Avenue, Red Bank. Interment will follow at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Middletown. She was a communicant of St. Anthony of Padua in Red Bank and dedicated many hours to the Church. One of her many ministries was delivering the host to parishioners at their homes. That being said, in lieu of flowers a donation in Josie's memory to St. Anthony of Padua Church would be greatly appreciated.
