Loving Mother, Grandmother, & Great-Grandmother.

Rosina Cafone, 96, of Nutley passed peacefully into eternal life at her home surrounded by her children and loved ones on August 28, 2019. Born in Acri, Cosenza, Italy, her parents were Giuseppe “Joe” Perrone and Dominica Gencarelli. She came to the United States in 1939 and has been a proud Nutley resident and parishioner of St. Mary’s Church, Nutley, for the past 80 years. Rosina was a member of the St. Mary’s Rosary Society and an active member of Nutley’s Tuesday and Friday Clubs.

Rosina and her husband, James, owned and operated Jimmy’s Market in Nutley for many years. Known for her homemade Italian sausage, she would sometimes brag about how her customers would have it shipped throughout the United States and Europe. In addition to serving her customers, Rosina enjoyed nothing more than cooking large, Italian meals for her family.

Rosina’s legacy includes her 19 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. Devoted sister to Georgina Crocco and sister-in-law to Jean Meggiolaro, Angela Cofone, and Maria Chimento. She also loved her many nieces and nephews. Rosina is predeceased by her husband, James, her son, Joseph, and her brother, Pasquale Barcaiulo.
