Julia Poggioli Obituary

Julie DeRosa Poggioli, 88, resident of Watchung, New Jersey, entered into eternal rest on November 20th, 2023, with her family by her side. Julie was born to the late Felice Montemarano DeRosa and Louis J. DeRosa, on July 16th, 1935 on the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Julie grew up in Brooklyn, surrounded by many loving relatives. She attended Bishop McDonald High School and St. Joseph College for Women in Brooklyn, and later graduated from Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey. 

In 1956, Julie married Raymond Poggioli. Their marriage was rich with love and affection. The young couple traveled first to Missouri, then to Michigan for Ray to complete medical school and his internship, all while growing their family. They decided to settle and raise their family in Clark, New Jersey. Julie is survived by five children, Ann, RoseAnn (Gus), Raymond (Lynn), Jeanne (Kevin)and Steve (Gina), as well as seven grandchildren, Jené, TJ, Katie, RJ, Rob, Caroline and Dan, eight great-grandchildren, Charlie, Angelo, Emmie, Selena, Julia, Lila, and Nala. She was predeceased by her husband, Ray, in 1974. Julie cherished her family and was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. 

After losing Ray, she returned to school to earn her Bachelors Degree in Sociology. She was an active member of her church and sang in the choir. She was employed by New Jersey Bell/Verizon and retired in 1998. After retiring, she moved to the Poconos with her daughter and son-in-law and had the privilege of helping to raise and care for two of her grandchildren. As a grandmother, Julie formed unique and special bonds with each of her grandchildren. Those who knew Julie admired her tenacious spirit and deep faith. She had an infectious sense of humor and often went out of her way to encourage and uplift others. 

In Lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Julie's name to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital or EWTN.
