December 20, 1937 ~ June 8, 2022 (age 84)


Josefina A. Casanova

Born: December 20, 1937 in Fresnillo, Zacatecas, Mexico to Pedro Arteaga Sanchez and Carlota Carlos Aro.

Died: June 7, 2022 in Livingston, California surrounded by her family.

Josefina is preceded in death by her parents and her beloved husband of 64 years, Jose Trinidad Casanova. She is survived by her six children; Socorro Casanova Castillo, Jose Trinidad Casanova Jr., Silvia Pulido, Fernando Casanova, Blanca Casanova and Armando Casanova. All of whom she loved unconditionally.  She also leaves behind 11 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

Josefina married the love of her life, Jose Casanova on June 14, 1955 in Zacatecas, Mexico. She moved to the United States on May 3, 1976 to be with her husband who was already here preparing for their family’s future in the United States.

Josefina is well known for her love for God, the church and her family. She had a caring and giving heart. She taught her children to be grateful and compassionate by her eagerness to help others that were in need or struggling through hard times. She is known for always having tamales and other food prepared for the local law enforcement to make sure they had a good meal while they were working and away from their families on the holidays. She would also prepare sack lunches for less fortunate families that would be at the park close by her house. She would walk the sack lunches down to these families at the park. There are many other examples that she has left to teach her family the importance of putting others first and always being grateful for what the Lord has blessed us with. She had the heart of an Angel. She enjoyed singing with her siblings.

Josefina will be missed by all that know and love her. Her warm and gentle spirit will be forever missed. The remembrance of her smile, sense of humor and laugh will forever warm our hearts. The memories she left behind will be a treasure that will carry us through the emptiness that is left by her passing. She will forever be in our hearts and in our minds.
