J osephine M. Uscilla, 95, formerly of Whitehall, and currently residing at Arden House Nursing Home in Hamden, Conn., passed away peacefully on Saturday, Dec. 4, 2010, at Hospital of St. Raphael in New Haven, Conn.

Josephine was born on March 9, 1915, in Whitehall, the daughter of Peter and Raphael (Caputo) DiPhillips. She was a graduate of Whitehall High School.

Josephine and her husband, Matthew “Matty,” were united in marriage in 1955. He passed away in 1994.

Josephine was employed at Champlain Spinners Silk Mill in Whitehall. She then moved to Hamden, Conn., where she worked as a bank teller until she retired and resided until her death.

She was a former member of Our Lady of Angels Roman Catholic Church in Whitehall and currently a communicant of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Hamden.

Josephine loved gardening, cooking and Italian baking. She was the most happy being a good homemaker.

Besides her husband, she is predeceased by two brothers, Frank “Hot Dog” DiPhillips and Ermond DiPhillips, two sisters, Agnes Edwards and Beatrice Cone, her son-in-law, Neal Angus, a grandson, Neal “Moe” Angus, and a niece, Laurene “Cone” Schermerhorn.

Survivors include her daughter, Gail Angus of Orlando, Fla.; her granddaughter, Laurie Swinehart of Orlando, Fla.; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 10, at Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church, Skene Street, Whitehall, with the Rev. Michael Flannery, pastor, officiating.  A Rite of Committal will follow in Our Lady of Angels Cemetery, Whitehall.

Friends may call at the church from 10 a.m. until the time of the services.

The family suggests that memorial contributions take the form of donations in her memory to the C.R. Wood Cancer Center, 102 Park Street, #2, Glens Falls, N.Y. 12801.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Michael G. Angiolillo Funeral Home, 210 Broadway, Whitehall.
