Josephine Turra

February 25, 1923-August 25, 2018


   Josephine (Cerasuolo) Turra of Malden, gracefully passed away Saturday evening August 25th, 2018 at the Ruben Thompson House in Saugus, in the presence of some of her loving family, at the age of 95. Josephine was born and raised in Boston’s now infamous North End. She was one of two daughters and eight son’s born of Vito & Marie Rose (Iconi) Cerasuolo.

   Josephine would later meet and marry the love of her life, Vincent Turra. The couple eventually settled in Malden where they later welcomed into their family three beautiful children, Robert, Rose Marie and Ursula.

   Josephine was a loving mom and dedicated much of her time to raising her three children. Outside of the home, Josephine and Vincent had a passion for real estate, and spent many fruitful years acquiring and re-selling desirable real estate in the Malden and Medford area as a side business.

   While family was everything to Josephine, one cannot underscore enough Josephine's, dedication and devotion to God and the church. She was extremely active in church as well as hosted and attended many prayer groups. She made it her mission to help the poor and underprivileged in the world and even went as far as donating a house. Her door was always open and she would always welcome you with a smile and a joke.

   Family and friends are invited to remember Josephine’s wonderful life on Thursday, August 30th, from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM at the Weir-MacCuish Funeral Home, located at 144 Salem Street, Malden.
