Doylestown, Pennsylvania | Age 99


Theresa D. Cerulli passed away on March 4, 2018 at the age of 99. Recently of Doylestown, PA, Theresa was born on March 3, 1919 in New York City to Pietro and Corsina DiGirolamo and was raised in the Bronx. She married her true love, Joseph Cerulli, on March 3, 1957. Theresa and Joseph raised their family in Scarsdale, NY, where they resided for over 40 years.

Theresa graduated from Hunter College and was an elementary school teacher in the New York City school system for many years. Theresa's greatest passion was her family, and there was nothing she wouldn't do to help a family member in need. Her culinary skills were appreciated by all and the Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve feasts she hosted were legendary. In their retirement years, Theresa and Joseph loved to travel, particularly to Italy, and they enjoyed their snowbird trips to Ft. Pierce, FL every winter.
