Julia Serafini, age 98

Of West Newton, died June 23, 2020 at St. Patrick's Manor in Framingham, Massachusetts.

She is the widow of Victor P. Serafini Jr., who was a decorated hero of WW II.

Her late parents were Maria and Antonio Grandinetti. She had 2 sisters, Catherine A. DeFazio and Josephine DeLuca both of Massachusetts. She lived in her own home on Cottage Place in West Newton with loving assistance from Patty McNeil and son, Victor Serafini until her current illness.

Julia lived most of her life in West Newton, Massachusetts. She was a devout parishioner of St. Bernard's Catholic Church where she attended daily mass, volunteered to bring communion to residents of nursing homes and patients in hospitals; she was a member of the church choir and helped everyone she could. She was a loving individual who always thought of her family and went out of her way to assist others

She was employed at Grover Cronin department store, Brigham's Ice Cream, The Busy "B" unique gift store, and retired from West Newton Savings Bank after several years of employment.

Many of her friends called her Julie or "Jewels".

She is survived by her daughter, AnnMarie Browne (Serafini) of Winchester, Indiana and son, Victor A Serafini (wife Patty McNeil) of Newton, Massachusetts. She has 3 grandchildren: Annette (Bosworth) DeLuca (husband Anthony), Donna (Bosworth) Rhoades ( husband Randy), and Robert Barron Jr. (wife Karen). Her great grandchildren are Nicholas DeLuca, April Dawn Marie (Kearns) Jackson, Nicole Beckstrom, and Robert Max Barron III. She has 3 Great, Great Grand Children: Emree Beckstrom, Aaron Jackson, Josephine (Josie) Jackson, all of Indiana. She has numerous nieces and nephews in Massachusetts.

She will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Out of genuine concern for those we love and care deeply about during this difficult time throughout the world and our community funeral services will be held private for the family.

I remember Julia - Mrs. Serafini - I grew up on the corner of River and Cottage Place. I remember her very well growing up and I also remember her always smiling. She was such a friendly, lovely lady. I also remember her family, her sister Josephine, as I was friends with her son Anthony. Also remember Mr. and Mrs. Graddinetti ( I remember Mr. Grandinetti as being very quiet, but always had a smile. Mrs. Grandinetti was such a sweetheart , would always stop and talk, but I can say I didn’t always understand her😊. It was such a wonderful time growing up on Cottage Place with them, the Lucentes, Rizzas, Gregorios, Paces, Higgins, Cupolis, Lennon’s. Time was definitely simpler then. My condolences to AnnMarie and Victor. Stephanie (Cookie) Grinley McGuire. Rest In Peace Julia🙏🏻
