Josephine LeRose Eccles

July 9, 1917 - March 17, 2013

ANDERSON, Ind. — Josephine LeRose (Catanzaro) Eccles, 95, of Anderson, passed away March 17, 2013, at Monticello House after a short illness.

She loved to play cards and charmed everyone with her warmth and humor. Her wonderful smile and laugh will be missed. If you asked her how she was she always answered with, “fat and sassy.” She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
