Julia’s life revolved around her husband and her family. They were her pride and joy. She loved attending sporting events, birthday celebrations, and family gatherings of all kinds. She was known for her gravy and meatballs. She welcomed everyone into her home and they never left hungry. A true Italian mother! Julia enjoyed bowling, playing bingo, and being with her friends at the Golden Years. She loved the beach and looked forward to summer vacations on Cape Cod with her family. She was a devout Catholic and rarely missed a Sunday mass or novena. Her gracious loving heart touched more lives than she knew. She will be greatly missed and always remembered.
