Josephine R. (Sottile) McBrien – of Scituate, MA passed away peacefully on May 24, 2018 at the age of 88. She was the beloved wife of the late Thomas H. McBrien, III, with whom she shared 56 years of marriage before his passing in 2014.

She was the devoted mother of Carolyn Guarino and her husband Frank of Marshfield, MA, JoAnn Driscoll of Scituate, MA, Lynn Dewsnap and her husband Hank of Boston, MA and son Tommy McBrien, IV and his wife Michelle of Scituate, MA.

Cherished grandmother of Will, Josie, Meghan, Tommy, Sarah, Frankie, Evan and Jessica.

Loving sister of George Sottile and his wife Harmy of Mystic, CT, Rita Pasquaretta of Falmouth, MA and the late Camille Russo, Frank Sottile, Anna Sopel and Mario Sottile. Adoring aunt to 17 nieces and nephews.

Josephine was born and raised in Hartford, CT, the daughter of the late Mario and Lucy (Novello) Sottile. She was a 1948 Graduate of Weaver High School in Hartford, CT. For many years, she worked in Sales at G. Fox Clothing Store and later as a bookkeeper for CT General Life Insurance.

She had a zest for life and a sweetness about her that was unmatched. She never hesitated to give a friendly smile and wave to those she met along her way. She enjoyed the simple life and loved her daily routine of taking walks, sitting down by the docks, going for coffee and helping out at her son Tommy’s garage. She will be missed in town by those who recognized her driving her Jaguar with the “JAG1” plates. Above all else, her true love was her family and the home they all made together on Third Cliff in Scituate.

Special thanks go to the hard working staff at Cardigan Nursing Home who cared for her in her final days with dignity and respect. Kindly consider a contribution in her memory in lieu of flowers to Cardigan Nursing Home, 59 Country Way, Scituate, MA 02066.

A Funeral Mass will be held Monday, June 4, 2018 at 10 a.m., at St. Mary of the Nativity Church, 1 Kent Street, Scituate, MA. For info and online condolences, www.richardsongaffeyfuneralhome.com.
