Julia V. (Verticelli) Russell

September 29, 1933 ~ February 18, 2022 (age 88)


Julia V. Russell (nee Verticelli), 88, of Blackwood, passed away peacefully on Friday, February 18, 2022, at her son’s home, with her loving family at her side. 

Julia fondly known as “Big Julie from Glen Oaks” was small in stature yet everything about her was larger than life. Julia was an active and proud board member for the Hider Lane Senior Club.  She enjoyed competitive bowling and poker games.  Later in life, she could be found watching action movies and drinking chocolate milkshakes. Julia could solve cryptograms like nobody’s business.  Julia was a hard worker, pillar of strength and a passionate mother.  She never wavered in her support or love for her family, especially her son and grandsons. Julia loved fiercely and deeply we take comfort in knowing that she is at peace. 

Julia is survived by her beloved son, Michael (Nicole) Russell and her adored grandchildren Michael, Marc, Tyler and Gucci. She is survived by her dear brother, Philip Verticelli and many loving nieces and nephews.  Julia will be missed by her friends that have become family at the Hider Lane Senior Club. 

Julia was predeceased by her parents, Michael and Catherine Verticelli, her sister, Louise, her brother, Russell, her sister, Jennie and her loving companion, Tulio Deliberali. 

Funeral Services will be private at the request of the family.  Cremation private.
