AGE: 89 • Wall Township

Theresa Julie Minatelli passed away peacefully surrounded by family, on August 9, 2017.

Terry, as she was called by all, was raised in North Bergen, the daughter of Hugo Minatelli and Lillian Gartino Minatelli. Her grandparents were Teresa Zargo Minatelli and Stefano Minatelli, noted Venice stone mason, who together emigrated to the U.S. in 1905 and successfully raised a family of seven siblings. All three boys, Hugo, Lawrence and Anthony -- Terry's father and uncles, enlisted and served in WW I or WW II.

Terry was a career woman and worked for many years for the Ted Bates Advertising Agency in New York City. Upon retirement, she moved to Spring Lake, and settled in nearby Wall Twp, Terry was very active travelling regularly to St. Thomas which she loved and at home playing golf with her many close friends. She regularly spent many happy days at the family's farm in Ancramdale, NY. However, she was a true Jersey Girl to the end.

She is survived by cousins Camille Paone of Santa Rosa, CA and William L. Palmer, Jr. of Essex, CT and his three children, Mary Elizabeth (Betsy) Palmer-Post, Muir Palmer, and William L. (Tad) Palmer, III and four grandchildren.
