100th Birthday for Josie!
Josephine Russo turns 100!
Congratulations to Hoboken’s Josephine Russo on the celebration of her 100th birthday on July 5th. At the tender age of 6 months old “Grandma Josie” came to Hoboken from Italy, and has lived here ever since. Just think of all the changes she’s seen in this city. World Wars I and II, the rise and fall of Hoboken’s waterfront industry, and more Mayors than most can count (including her son Anthony, who was Mayor from 1993 to 2001.)
100 years is quite an accomplishment. Happy Birthday, Josie!
