Ursula Delio Obituary


Ursula Delio, a beacon of love and wisdom, passed away peacefully on June 8, 2024, at the age of 96, in Staten Island, NY. Born in Brooklyn, NY, on June 30, 1927, Ursula lived a life marked by devotion to her family, her work, and her passions.


A graduate of John Adams High School in Ozone Park, NY, Ursula's academic excellence was evident as she earned top honors and the distinction of class valedictorian. Following her education, she began her career as a salesgirl at Gertz Department Store in Queens, NY, where she was known for her kindness and exceptional service.


Ursula's life was characterized by a profound love for her family. She was the cherished matriarch, a beloved mother to her children Anthony (Buz) Delio (deceased), Gloria and Eric Glickman, John and Kathy (deceased) Guzzo, and Mildred Guzzo Amatrudo. Ursula's role as a grandmother and great-grandmother was one she treasured deeply, bringing joy to Mark and Michelle Delio, Rocky and Leah Delio, Ursula (her namesake) and Danny Roman, Victoria Amatrudo and Matthew Swanberg, Manny Amatrudo, Maria Guzzo, Christina Guzzo Olivieri, Patricia Guzzo, John Guzzo Jr., Joey Guzzo, Julie Glickman and Harry Glickman.  


She was a very proud great-grandmother to Taylor and Shaun Mandoeng, Audrey Mirabel Roman, Gia and James Delio, and Joshua and Lucas Potts. 


After dedicating years to raising her beloved family, Ursula returned to the workforce with the same commitment and warmth, this time as a salesgirl for Pearle Vision Eyewear. Her colleagues and customers alike appreciated her genuine care and wise counsel.


Ursula's interests were deeply intertwined with her love for her family. She devoted her time and energy to nurturing relationships, creating lasting memories through shared meals and gatherings. Her hobby was her family, and she found her greatest joy in their company.


Blessed with a beautiful singing voice, Ursula once had the opportunity to sing on Broadway. However, her dedication to her role as a newlywed took precedence, and she chose to focus on her growing family. Her voice remained a joy and comfort to those who had the pleasure of listening to her sing throughout her life.


Those who knew Ursula would describe her as loving, kind, and wise. Her guidance and affection shaped the lives of those around her, leaving a legacy of warmth and compassion that will be fondly remembered and deeply missed.


Ursula Delio's life was a testament to the power of love and the enduring strength of family bonds. As we mourn her passing, we also celebrate the remarkable woman she was and the indelible impact she made on the lives of so many.


Her presence will be deeply missed, but her spirit will live on through the cherished memories shared by her family and friends. Ursula Delio's journey may have come to a gentle close, but the echoes of her love and wisdom will resonate for generations to come.
