Survived by her children David (Carolyn), Avraham (Georgette Beainy), Sheila (Bob Wells) and Leana (Thomas O'Keefe). Loved being with her family, travelling, attending the San Francisco Opera and going out for meals, always impeccably dressed.
Adored "Mama" to grandchildren: David (Michelle), Thomas (Dawn), Matthew; Beau (Cooksie), Lisa (Bill), Cara (Andrew), Christian (Megan), Marco (Bere'); Carl (Keala), Jamie (Renee), Juliette (Darren); Cristiana, Elisa and Joey. Juliette also leaves behind more than 25 great-grandchildren; sisters Jenny and Albina and brothers Aldo and Louis; cousins in Italia and Argentina; nephews, nieces and sister-in-law Pina.
Juliette was always passionate about education and the opportunities this would give to her family. She remained loyal to The Schools of the Sacred Heart and Santa Clara University.
