Friday, December 14, 2018

PAWTUCKET – Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC) Chair David N. Cicilline (RI-01) issued the following statement today:


“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. I was proud to work with her throughout my time in public service. Her death is an enormous loss for our state.”


“My thoughts and prayers are with Fefa’s family and all who loved her today.”
