Josefina Pacheco Acosta was born on March 19, 1933 in San Blas, Sinaloa and passed away March 14, 2020 in her home in Phoenix, Az. with her loved ones by her side. She was born to Fortino and Victoria Pacheco who she is now with along with siblings Humberto, Hector, Guillermina, Abelardo, and Natalia. Also most importantly reunited with her son Marcelino Acosta all united once again. Josefina was a hard worker and very dependable person starting at a young age. Being the oldest sibling she had to take care of many things including cooking, sewing outfits for siblings, making food to sell,( always selling out), and making sure her siblings were going to school. She put her all into everything she did, especially her cooking. If you ate her cooking I’m sure you had a favorite dish or two. She always made lots of food because she knew it would be gone in no time. She was a very proud homemaker, fortunate to be able to stay home to raise her 6 kids. She did her best to provide even if it meant she would go without. Not only was she a good mother but a wife, sister, aunt, friend, etc.. Always there for you and never like to fight or argue with anyone regardless of the situation. Very forgiving person and non judgemental. She enjoyed going to family parties and gatherings because the food and deserts were always good. Another place she really enjoyed going was the casinos and she would end up winning most of the time. She is survived by husband, Marcelino Acosta of 61 years, married on Dec.28, 1958 in Sinaloa, Mexico. Her children Mauricio, Francisco, Jaime, Eduardo, Nolberto & wife Patricia, and Felicitas Acosta. Grandchildren Nicholas, Jeremy, Isaiah, Michael, and Jacob. Siblings Artemisa, and Maria Esther Pacheco Gallardo

Some of my favorite memories are of Josephina’s cooking! I remember as teenagers coming back to the house and there’d always be food on the stove. Her cooking is what I grew up on and to this day I can’t find any at a restaurant as good as hers. Especially her tamales! I’ve never had any like hers. They were the best!!!
She was always so sweet to me and my kids. She will be missed.

Sending my love and condolences to the family.
