Josephine Glorioso Tuminello, 97, passed away on March 11, 2022, after a lengthy illness. Visitation will be held from 10:00 am to 10:30 am on Tuesday, March 15,2022, at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church, followed by a Holy Rosary at 10:30 am with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at 11:00 am with Father Charles Glorioso and Father Rothell Price as co-celebrants. Interment will follow at Forest Park at 3700 St. Vincent Avenue, Shreveport, La. 71103.
Mrs. Tuminello was born in Lakeland, La. near New Roads, La. on January 13, 1925. When she was a little girl, her father, Paul Glorioso died and she was brought to Cefalu, Sicily, where she lived with her grandparents Francesco D’Amico and Maria Glorioso D’Amico. As a young girl, Josephine took piano lessons and was accomplished, and as a result played in the Cathedral and other surrounding Catholic churches near Cefalu in the months of May, August, and October celebrating feast days of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Josephine was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Dominic Tuminello. Mrs. Tuminello was a loving, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She is survived by her sons, Paul Tuminello, wife Rosalyn and Dominic Tuminello, wife Karlos. “Oma” as she was affectionately called was a wonderful grandmother to Paul Tuminello, wife Megan, Jamie Tuminello Schuler, husband Ben, Elizabeth Tuminello Reason, husband Phil, and Loren Tuminello. Oma was also a wonderful great-grandmother to Hunter and Katie Schuler, Sophia Tuminello and Hunter Perry, Remington and Ryker Tuminello.
Her sense of humor will be missed because she found the silver lining in life which was a result of her strong faith in Jesus and His Mother.
No memorial is requested. Instead, offer a Rosary for the repose of her soul and the state of the world and that would be appreciated.
Many thanks and appreciation to the nurses and support staff at The Oaks of Louisiana and Grace Home Hospice.
