She was a great joy to be around, Julia laughed and hugged like nobody’s business. She loved cookies and cakes, with a little coffee on the side. Of course she loved coffee so much you had to hide the coffee maker. She did the most energetic dance running from one corner to the other; fitting her favorite movie was Grease2. Earlier years found her at Burlington County Special Services School and learning signing at the Bancroft School. Julia was all about her pool (she made waves in a way no one could duplicate) and enjoyed day trips to the beach.
She is survived by her father, Charles; siblings, Sherry, Christine, and James Yannarella and many nieces and nephews. She was pre-deceased by her mother, Bonnie.
Come celebrate 45 great years Thursday 10-11 a.m. at Sweeney Funeral Home, Beverly. Interment Monument Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations to Autism Speaks (Autismspeaks.org) will be appreciated.
