Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Heaven acquired another angel Sunday evening, August 31st, upon the death of Julia Amity of Taylor. Passing away surrounded by her loving family, the Lord came to bring her home. She is survived by her husband of 66 years, Joseph R. Amity.
Born in Exeter on November 29, 1925, daughter of the late Lorenzo and Carmela Lucente Maccione, along with raising her family, she worked side by side with family members in the family business, Amity and Company. A talented musician who could play any instrument, had a beautiful singing voice, she was also an avid gardener, proud of her beautiful flowers.
Julia was a person devoted to her family and her faith. She was a member of Divine Mercy Parish in Scranton. Generous and caring, she was a woman of few words, however she had the knack for getting her point across if need be. Despite her legacy being one of love, her humor, pranks and one-lined jokes will never be forgotten.
Along with her husband, she is also survived by her three compassionate children, Michaelina Kilvitis, Pattie Haan and husband Scot, and Joseph M. Amity and wife Patti; her sister, Mary DiPasquale; many nieces and nephews; five loving grandchildren, Isabella and Niko Amity, Robert Kilvitis and wife Philippe, Janine Galiyano, and Juliann Hughes and husband Oran; and six great grandchildren who provided her great joy and comfort and who she will forever be watching over, Ashlyn and Caitlin Kilvitis, Mark (M.J.) and Anabella Galiyano and Mason and Mason and Gabriella Hughes. Always keeping her updated on ever-changing technology and updates to her iPad, it’s unfortunate she never had the chance of sharing with them her driving skills or her talent for playing music.
Along with her parents, she was also preceded in death by siblings, Joseph, Christopher, Anthony and Amelia Maccione.
Services with a Mass of Christian Burial at Divine Mercy Church, to be celebrated by Rev. Francis L. Pauselli, Pastor, and entombment in the Cathedral Cemetery will be private.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be in Julia’s name to either Animal Care Associates, 1916 Rosanna Street, Scranton, 18509, or to the Hospice of the Sacred Heart, 600 Baltimore Drive, Wilkes Barre, 18702.
Her family would like to send their gratitude to the staff of Hospice of the Sacred Heart for their assistance, understanding and support.
Arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge.
