Julia G. Sardelli

She is survived by her children, Louis Sardelli and his wife Liz Holstein, Julie Sardelli, Robert Sardelli, John Sardelli and his wife Anahid Avedesian. Julia was the proud grandmother of Sam and Amara Sardelli.

Raised in the Silver Lake section of Providence, she was the daughter of Vincent and Julia Geremia. Predeceased in death by her brother, Billy and twin brother Vinny. Julia married Vincent Sardelli of Cranston in 1950 and were married for over 60 years.

In her retirement, Julia and Vinny spent many winters in Sarasota, Florida. They drove down on Super Bowl Sunday and returned before Easter, not before stopping at Papa Gino's for a meatball sandwich.

Julia was well versed in the kitchen with her Italian specialty dishes. She baked delicious apple and blueberry pies, as well as pepper biscuits and egg biscuits. She was an avid reader who got the most use out of her local library and completed the daily crossword puzzles.

Hello to all my Sardelli friends. I still remember all the good times from back in the 70's when my dad Jim got me to spend a summer at T. Sardelli and Sons. If memory serves me correctly, wasn't I in the room where I had to put together and then tape the boxes that then had to be sent out? Again, I can still remember going around the entire building to visit the other employees during lunch time. Boy, those were the "good ol' days"!! I hope you are all doing well today and, as always, I will start my 7 day 10 prayer decade on this Sunday coming up (July 14th). May God bless her. Amen!

Hello Sardelli family, I have very many fond memories of growing up on Hemlock avenue, and living across the street from the wonderful Sardelli family. Louis, you and Jimmy and Todd and Kathy and I played together constantly and were the best of friends. Your mom and my mom were writing to each other from Virginia to Rhode Island and vice versa until just recently when my mom could no longer see well enough to send your mom letters. She is 91 now and will be very saddened when I tell her that her dear friend and neighbor has passed. Your mom was a very good, kind and sweet woman. George and I send our sympathy to you, Julie Ann. Robert and John Sincerely Carol and George Lutz

To Louis, Julie, Robert, and John, I send you my deepest condolences. Your mom was one of my favorite people, and it makes me sad to hear of her passing, but also glad to know she lived a long full life. I can still hear her laughter, and smell the amazing food she cooked, and for that matter still hear your dad playing that hollow-body electric guitar. So many wonderful memories of your home and family.

I only interacted with her a couple of times but she left an indelible impression on me. Very kind and accepting and gifted in hospitality.
