Josephine Carlin | Obituary | Ethical Death Care | Winnipeg


February 10, 1934 – December 19, 2023

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Josephine on December 19, 2023, at the age of 89.


Josephine was predeceased by her loving husband Dino.  She will be deeply missed by her children Daniela (Jeff), Olivia (Troy), Linda (Rod) and Dino; grandchildren Hilary (Cory), Emily, Audrey, Emma, Jared, Jacob and Natalie; and her great-grandson Anders.


Josephine was born in the town of Villarosa in the province of Enna, Sicily (Italy) on February 10, 1934. When she was 22, she travelled alone by boat to Canada and arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia December 18, 1956. She then took a train and travelled to Winnipeg, Manitoba to join her family.  We will always remember her stories of the long train ride and seeing snow for the first time in Canada.  Josephine later met Dino while taking an English class and they were married June 24, 1961.


Spending time with family was everything to Josephine. She would always be cooking a fantastic meal and encouraging everyone to mangia (eat).  All who ate her lasagna will never forget how incredible it tasted.


You taught us so many things but most importantly you taught us how to love. You were so loving, caring and so very proud of us all. There was always a sparkle in your eyes when you saw your grandchildren and your great-grandson, the joy you felt was undeniable.  You and dad did so much for us.  You gave us everything that you did not have when growing up and we could never thank you enough.  You have given each of us a little piece of your compassion, your strength and made us all what we are today.


You were so strong and you fought so hard – you can rest now and be with dad. You will never be forgotten and you will always hold a special place in our hearts.


The family would like to thank the staff at Tuxedo Villa for their care and support during her final months.  A private family service will be held at a later date.


In lieu of flowers, please consider making contributions in Josephine’s memory to a charity of choice.
