Josephine A. High

Wilmington - Josephine (Cesarina Amelia) High, age 92, passed away peacefully on July 8th, 2018, surrounded by her loving family, at the caring and loving community of Brandywine Nursing Home.

She was born in Wilmington, Delaware to the late Anthony & Josephine Padovani on February 4, 1926. She attended St. Patrick's School in Wilmington, where she also married her late husband, Charles High in 1945.

She worked at Premium Deli and Glasgow Deli for several years, but her best job was a home maker, wife and mother. Her most enjoyment was being home with family and friends. She loved company. Her achievements were many; one being a fabulous cook, which we all enjoyed very much. She loved shopping, doing crossword puzzles, and in her younger years she loved card night with her sisters and sisters-in-law and the vacations and cruises they all took together. Her favorite thing at home was watching "The Young and Restless" and the "Hallmark Channel". The little things seemed to make her the happiest, especially her children.

Josephine is preceded in death by her siblings Tillie & Pat Padalivo, Adele & Eddie Kempski, Jeannie & Al Roop, and Tony & Alice Padovani. She is survived by siblings Guido & Padovani, June & Jennie Padovani, Mary & Al Szymanski, Victor & Beverly Padovani, and Alice & Paul Kaczorowski; children Dottie & Mike Bachman, Shirley Gula, and Charles (Buckie) & Evelyn High; 12 grandchildren; and 21 great-grandchildren.

A viewing will be held Thursday, July 12th 2018, 11am, at CHARLES P. ARCARO FUNERAL HOME, 2309 Lancaster Ave., Wilmington, DE 19805. Services will begin at 12noon. Internment to follow at Cathedral Cemetery.
