AGE: 86 • Wilmington

Julie passed away peacefully on October 17, 2016 surrounded by her loving family.

Born on February 11, 1930 to Domenic and Antoinette Cioti in Kennett Square, PA, Julie was a graduate of Kennett Consolidated High School where she was an outstanding athlete, taking the best all-around female athlete award for four years. After high school, she began her career at the Kennett Square Bell Telephone Company, where she worked until moving to Wilmington, DE in 1951. She raised her three children, Jimmy, Debbie, and Donna, and returned to work at the phone company, retiring from Diamond State Telephone Company in 1995.

Julie had many talents including oil painting, which she did every Tuesday at the Fraim Boys Club since retirement. Additionally, Kul Jul was a fantastic cook, baker, crocheter, an avid cross word solver, and an enthusiastic football, baseball, and tennis fan. Above all, she loved spending time doting on her family, who will always love her more than the stars in the sky.

Julie was preceded in death by her sisters, Gracie Picciotti and Carmella Amabili; and her brother, John Cioti.

Living on in her light are her children, Jim DelGrosso and wife Mary Ann, Debbie Ramone and husband Pat, and Donna Lynn DelGrosso; her grandchildren, Jimmy (Pam) and Mike DelGrosso, and Julie, Patrick, and Matt Ramone; two great granddaughters Cassie and Gemma; great grandniece, Grace; her sisters. Rosie Strengari, Ninnette Heinly; her brother-in-law, Louie Amabili; and many loving nieces and nephews.
