Jennie Tosches, 96, passed away Tuesday, April 28, 2020 in Milford. She is survived by her children Maria Rhiel (Concord, CA) and Ron Tosches and daughter-in-law Melinda (Winter Park, FL); grandchildren Jack Rhiel (Concord, CA), Joe Rhiel (Concord, CA), and Jennifer Kling (Martinez, CA); great-grandchildren Jack, Dominic, Fox, and Rock; and too many nieces, nephews, and cousins to list and was loved by all. She is predeceased by her father Giacomo and mother Maria Tocci, husband Frank Tosches, and her brothers and sisters Joseph Sapiro, Antoinette Caniano, Benjamin Tocci, Erma Cervino, Helen DelMar, Virginia Lioce, Celia Tocci, Josephine Chamberlin, and Dominic Tocci.
Jennie grew up in Milford and lived there her whole life. She enjoyed traveling (Italy, Florida, California, Las Vegas), playing bingo, going to the horse track, bowling, and collecting souvenirs. Jennie could light up a room with her smile, drawing people to her. She could strike up a conversation with anyone, even in the grocery store, and wasn’t afraid to ask anyone to take her dancing. Anyone who saw her at a wedding, or any other social event, knew Jennie could cut a rug on the dance floor! Jennie always said she was “only 19,” perhaps the six packets of sugar she had in every cup of coffee were the secret to her youth. Jennie will be missed by all who knew her.
