On Thursday morning, April 9, 2020, Josephine Doval passed away at Rose Garden Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Toms River, New Jersey, where she was a resident for 15 years. She was born March 18, 1937 in Freeland, Pennsylvania. She moved to New Jersey as a child, and later raised her family here. She was predeceased by her mother Rose Amentler Rames, stepmother Rose Parifica, her father, Joseph Rames, and her beloved sister Anna Marie Incitti and her husband Tony. Josephine was widowed by her adored husband Eddie Doval and former husbands Tommaso Barone Sr. and Hilman Knight.

She was survived by her five children, Joseph Barone Sr. and his wife Lucy, Thomas Barone Jr., Rosanne Barone, Anna Marie Barone, and Steven Knight and his wife Tara. She sincerely loved and adored each of her 14 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren! She will also be missed by her nieces, nephews and other family.

Her greatest joy was being surrounded by her large family and feeling their strong bond with each other. Josephine tied them all together as the matriarch. She will be missed by the wonderful people at Rose Garden who became like her extended family and enriched her life. The family would like to thank the staff at Rose Garden for upholding true professionalism in such tender times.

After the current pandemic, the family will host a memorial service and a gathering at the Mastapeter memorial Home, 270 Atlantic City Blvd., Bayville. Details will be provided by the family. Thank you. Mrs. Doval will have a private burial service with the family at this time. For messages of condolences, please go to our website.

Josie and I bonded in 1993 when we shared our first grandchild. We shared another in 1996. We we both also shared a great love for food i was privileged to have Josie at my table many times over the years. I was also privileged to be there when Josie accepted Jesus into her heart. Josie leaves a hole in my heart. I'll miss the warm and vivacious Josephine Doval.

Josie was the 1st resident from rosegarden that I took shopping, she had me picking little girl’s Christmas dresses.. I had no idea if I picked right sizes but apparently I did learn afterwards that I did good. We were together for almost 13 years at rosegarden and together every day for lunch. Lunch at that table will never be the same, Josie ran that table like the boss that she was 🤣.. I hope she is resting at peace and I’m sure she’s already in charge.. love you Josie and you will always be in my heart.. ❤️

Please accept my very deepest sympathy in the loss of your dear Josephine, and I thank you for the privilege of caring for her for the almost 4 years I have been an employee of Rose Garden. May your beautiful memories of her sustain you at this very sad time.

Barbara A Fariello, RN
