“I am deeply saddened by the death of my good friend, Josefina Rosario, who was also known as “Doña Fefa” to countless friends and admirers. Fefa was the mother of Rhode Island’s Dominican American community. She and her husband, Tony, supported many families who came to the United States in search of a better life.
