Tributes for

Cano, Josephine

February 26, 1927 - June 5, 2014

Long time Sunland resident, Josephine Cano passed away in her sleep on June 5, 2014. She was 87 years old. Josephine was preceded by her husband, Mario Sr.; and her daughter, Laurie. She is survived by her son, Mario Cano Jr., and his wife Sally, of Sierra Madre, CA.

Josephine was born in Cuauhtémoc, Mexico and grew up in Chihuahua, Mexico. Josephine came to the U.S. when she married her husband of over 65 years. Josephine worked in the food service industry, but her most rewarding job was as a cafeteria assistant at Mount Gleason Junior High School in Tujunga. Josephine was a good athlete and her most memorable achievement was to be one of the first women to play in the men's softball league in the San Fernando Valley. To her immediate family, Josephine was a good wife and mother. Although she was generally a quite woman, she did have a good sense of humor and everyone would agree that she was the kindest of persons.
