Obituary of Julie A. Volpert-Augello

Julie A. Volpert-Augello, (nee Volpert), age 59, of Wilmington, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, December 3, 2023, in the Emergency Room of Morris Hospital.

Born December 14, 1963, in Elmhurst, IL, she was the daughter of the late John and Joan (Pemberton) Volpert.  Raised in Addison, she was a graduate of Addison Trail High School.

Julie worked as a bus driver and for the past 21 years, drove for Troy School District 30C.  Her passion was working with special needs children and she kept in contact with many of her former students and their families.  Julie had just retired from her career with Troy schools on Friday, December 1, 2023.

A loving and devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Julie will be remembered as a Renaissance woman and a very spiritual person.  She was an animal lover and enjoyed nature, especially while out riding her Harley motorcycle.  She also loved to entertain, and her family will sadly miss their Sunday dinners at her home.

Surviving are her beloved sons, Justin (April) Quatrano and Anthony (Robin) Quatrano; her adoring grandchildren, Mikayla, Cian, Julianna, Dillan, Jocelyn, Autumn, Gianna and Jordyn; seven precious great-grandchildren, Amazia, Azariah, Joshua, Jaxson, Deontae, Avionna and Deja; her soulmate, Michael Valiente; and a daughter-in-law, Lisa Chastain.  She is also survived by her brothers and sisters, Ross Volpert, Rusty Volpert, Vicki Gleason-Ring and Mickey McKee; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded by her husband, Albert J. “Bo” Augello (June 25, 2015); one son, Christopher Chastain (June 6, 2022); her parents, John Volpert, Sr. and Joan Paul; and two brothers, Michael Volpert and John Volpert, Jr.
