She was born on July 29, 1924, in Paterson, NJ, and was the daughter of William and Maryanne (Gromley) Halliwell. She received her high school diploma from Central High School in Patterson, NJ. She was the owner of Circle Café before beginning her career as the Court Clerk to the Assignment Judge of Passaic County, NJ, from which she retired in 1987.
Her passion was reading and playing cards, especially with her great-grandson, Devin Embrich. She enjoyed taking road trips and traveled most of the U.S. with her loving companion, John Sellitto.
She is survived by her daughter, Marilyn Murphy, and her husband, David; grandson, Dean Embrich, and granddaughter, Elyse Daddiego. She also is survived by 2 sisters-in-law, 5 nieces and nephews, an "adopted" great-granddaughter, Alyssa, and an estranged son and his 2 daughters.
