Josephine Del Deo, Provincetown luminary, dies at 90
A poet, author, concert violinist, political advocate, master weaver, preservationist and more, Josephine Del Deo left an indelible mark on the community.
“Her passion for Provincetown is almost unequaled. She fought with every fiber of her being to preserve the beauty and character of her adopted hometown,” said Mary-Jo Avellar, lifelong Provincetown resident and former selectman, who delivered the eulogy at Del Deo’s funeral at the Provincetown Cemetery.
