Jill Famiglietti, daughter of Joseph and Pamela, passed away peacefully with her loving brother Jeffrey and sister-in-law Becki there, who Jill always referred to as her "sister." Jill was born in Manhasset. Upon her father's retirement from WABC News, the family relocated to their winter home in Delray Beach, FL, where Jill, her mom and dad resided for the next 31 years. Jill, although born with a poor heart and disability, proudly worked for Publix supermarket for over 25 years. Upon both of her parents passing away last summer, Jill moved to Savannah, GA, with Jeffrey and Becki where she again worked for a local Publix. Jill was always active in a South Florida group for the disabled called People's First and a proud member of the Special Olympics.
Jill's smile and the sparkle in her eyes will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of meeting this angel. Jill is survived by her brothers, Sterling, Joseph, Harry, and Jeffrey, her niece Madison and very special friend and sister-in-law Becki. God Bless Mom, Dad and Jill.
Services were held March 4 at the Catholic Church of Ascension, 7250 N. Federal Hwy, Boco Raton, FL followed by a reception at Tropic Bay, 911 Gardenia Drive, at the Boat House.
