Julia Woolley Obituary

After a life well lived, Julia Woolley, age 97, died peacefully at her home on Sunday, March 26, 2023, surrounded by her loving family. 

A devoted homemaker, Julia held most dear to her heart her role as wife, mother, and grandmother. She was especially proud of the garden her husband John maintained each season that included a bountiful harvest of tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers, radishes, strawberries, and blueberries all of which she joyfully shared with her family, neighbors, and friends. 

A communicant of St. John Paul II Parish (Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church), Julia's unwavering faith in God was always an important part of her life. She was a longtime member of the Mt. Carmel Rosary Society and the Mt. Carmel Seniors. She was also a member and proud supporter of the Richard A. Rutkowski Association, the Pulaski Parade Memorial Committee, and the Friends of Saint Francis Organization. In her leisure time, she enjoyed sewing and socializing with friends at various community events and church fundraisers that she faithfully attended over the years. 

Julia is predeceased by her dearly beloved husband, John, her parents, John and Victoria Kochanek, three sisters, Helen Kochanek, Sophie Budzinski, and Stephanie Kazmierski; five brothers, Walter, Anthony, Frank, Stanley, and Edward Kochanek.  Left to cherish her memory are her sons, Kenneth Woolley and his wife Dara, and Thomas Woolley, and her three grandsons, Christopher Woolley, Kyle Woolley, and Ryan Woolley and his wife Marissa. 

A visitation will be held at the Dworzanski & Son Funeral Home, on Wednesday, March 29, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm and 7:00 to 9:00 pm.  A funeral mass in Julia's honor will be offered on Thursday, March 30, at 11:00 a.m. from St. John Paul II Parish.  Interment will follow at Holy Cross Cemetery, North Arlington, NJ. 


Amazing grace shall always be my song of praise, 

for it was grace that brought my liberty;

I do not know just why He came to love me so,

He looked beyond my faults and saw my need.

 I shall forever lift my eyes to Calvary to

view the cross where Jesus died for me; 

how marvelous the grace that caught my falling soul,

He looked beyond my fault and saw my need.
