Giuseppa “Giusi” Epifanotto
Family Was Her World -
Giuseppa “Giusi” Epifanotto, age 55, of Camp Hill, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 21, 2021. Giusi was born on Sunday, October 3, 1965, in Carini, Sicily to Anna Nicastri and the late Vincenzo Brasile.
Giusi’s survivors include her loving husband of nearly 38 years, Francesco Epifanotto; her three children: Rosaria “Sara” Epifanotto and husband, Piero, and their children: Angela, Giusi, Salvo, and Francesco, of Mechanicsburg, Annalisa “Anna” Epifanotto and husband, Gianfranco, and their children: Michael and Luana, of Mechanicsburg, Vincenzo “Vinny” Epifanotto and wife, Lauren, of Mechanicsburg; her mother, Anna Nicastri of Sicily; her brother, Antonio Brasile and wife, Melissa, of Mount Joy; her two sisters: Tiziana Amato and husband, Salvatore, of Lancaster, Elvira Brasile and husband, Carlo, of Sicily; and several nieces and nephews.
Giusi was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Mechanicsburg for 10 years. Along with her husband and children, Giusi helped with the family business - Amici Pizza & Restaurant in Mechanicsburg. She enjoyed doing everything from cleaning to cooking. If Giusi wasn’t at the shop, she could be found playing puzzle games, such as Candy Crush or Bubble Witch Saga, on her iPad. She loved laughter and with her most recent discovery of TikTok videos, Giusi was able to share her very contagious laugh with others. Another hobby of hers was visiting her favorite place, TJ Maxx, and buying little knick knacks, which decorated her home. Above all else, Giusi’s family was her world. She loved her husband with her whole heart, would do anything for her children, and absolutely adored her grandchildren.
