Josephine Accursio Glass

Josephine Accursio Glass was called home to God July 29, 2019

surrounded by her loving husband and children.

Born in Everett, Massachusetts, she would have been 90 years old September 20th.

She is survived by her devoted husband of 66 years, Walter W. Glass and three adoring children Walter W. Glass, Jr. (Maria), Richard R. Glass and Linda Johnson (Jon) as well as seven grandchildren Elissa (Edwin), Melanie (Mark), Jeannie, Casey, Britney, Jon Jr., William; four great grandchildren Eddie, Olivia, Zach and Mikey plus countless other family members and friends.

She was the youngest of seven children born to Lucio and Provedenzia Accursio, a prominent Florida City family. Her parents and brothers predeceased her.

Josephine graduated from Walsh Business College in Miami and was an active Realtor and business owner since 1970.

Josephine loved cooking and sharing her recipes with anyone who asked. Each meal was a buffet of Italian specialties from cannoli at Christmas to cassata at Easter. Her love of cooking was only surpassed by her love of family. Family was everything to her and she was everything to us. She will be sorely missed. She has left our hearts full of love and our stomachs full of pasta.
