Burial will follow the Mass at Gate of Heaven Chapel Mausoleum, Gate of Heaven Cemetery, 225 Ridgedale Ave., East Hanover, NJ.

Louise was the first of four children born in Madison to the late Vincent and Mary (Finelli) Yuliano.  She was a graduate of St. Vincent Martyr Elementary School and Madison High School.  Her beautiful dimples made her known as “Dimps” to all in town. 

Louise went on to marry her grade school sweetheart, Andrew and they settled in Florham Park in 1953. Some of her happiest moments were found in the kitchen making her world-famous antipasto or frying the hottest of peppers from the garden.  Whether she was cooking for 2 or 100, she always loved sharing her cooking as there was always more than enough food for everyone. 

She was a member of the Florham Park Senior Citizens, Holy Family and St. Vincent Martyr Rosary/Altar Society, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Guild and the Florham Park Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary.  During the 1980’s she could be found cooking in the FPVFD kitchen with the other Auxiliary members preparing their special annual Spaghetti Dinner for the department.  

Louise was a kind, generous and selfless woman who had great love for her family.  She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother.  She enjoyed going to her grandchildren and great grandchildren’s activities and could be found in the stands for football, basketball, baseball and softball games, in addition to her great grandchildrens’ concerts at her alma mater St Vincent’s Martyr School. 

Louise was a devout Catholic and practiced her faith unceasingly. She was a Parishioner at both Holy Family Church and St. Vincent’s Martyr Church.  She was especially proud to continue the family legacy and tradition of celebrating Our Lady of Mt Carmel every July. For many years her family and she were the caretakers of the 100+ year old banner in honor of Our Lady. Never without rosary beads close by, she was always reciting the rosary throughout the day.   

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her sister, Rosemary Granato, brothers Vincent and Louis Yuliano, sisters-in-law, Rose Gero and Natalie Siciliano, brothers-in-law, Tony Gero, Peter Siciliano and Pat Granato.

Louise is survived by her son, Biff and his wife Nadine, her daughter Rosemary, four grandchildren; Nicholas (Samantha) Picone, Melissa (Joseph) Wakeland, Andrew (Kate) Solden, Alyssa (John) Kirwan, eight great grandsons; Aiden, Dylan, Reed, Carter, John, Liam, Mason and Cameron and one great granddaughter, Abigail.  She is survived by daughter-in-law Diane Picone. She is also survived by her sister-in-law Arlene Yuliano and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

A very special thank you to Sachell, Jennifer and Dr. P in addition to her caretakers, Aurora and Trudi for their amazing care these last weeks and months.    Her family cannot thank you enough for your kindness and compassion to our Gma. 

 In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Louise can be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital (www.stjude.org).
