Elizabeth Anne DePalma died peacefully on March 19, 2022 at Sunrise Assisted Living in Randolph, NJ. She was born to Louise Adeline Bassi and Harry A Bassi on May 15, 1932 in Morristown, NJ and lived most of her life in Florham Park.
Family was very important to Betty, as she was known to family and friends. She met her future husband Joseph J DePalma through his friend when he was on leave from the Army. When he finished his duty in California they were engaged in December of 1954 and married on June 18, 1955, at St. Vincent Church in Madison, NJ. She was blessed with three children James, Jodi, and David DePalma.
Betty loved living in her home in Florham Park and entertained many family gatherings through the years. Betty loved spending time with her grandchildren Adam and Jason DePalma, AJ and Daniel Cullen, and Christian and Haleigh DePalma. Whatever the grandchildren wanted to do, she was always a willing volunteer; whether it was hiking a trail in Maine, playing mini-golf or the annual “Thanksgiving” movie events she was happy to be with them.
Betty was a devoted Catholic and attended Holy Family Church in Florham Park until her health declined. In addition to her husband, she was predeceased by her only sister Marion Varro. Betty is survived by her son James and his wife Sheila of Lewiston, ME, her daughter Jodi and her husband Andrew and her son David and his wife Samantha all of Succasunna, NJ.
The funeral mass will be held on Wednesday, March 23rd, 11am, at Holy Family Church in Florham Park, followed by the entombment at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in East Hanover.
In lieu of flowers, Betty wanted donations given to your local Hospice.
