Desiree DeJulia, 37, of Sharon, died unexpectedly at 2:45 p.m. Monday, Nov. 27, 2017, in her residence.
Desiree was born, March 14, 1980, in Sharon, a daughter of Tony DeJulia, of Sharon, and Wanda Yount DeJulia of Sharon.
She attended Sharon High School and was a stay-at-home mother.
In school, Desiree excelled in athletics and art. She was passionate about writing poetry and continued to write throughout her entire life. Desiree was known for her razor-sharp wit and unparalleled mischievous sense of humor. She loved her friends and family deeply and openly, had a special nickname for every person she knew and never parted ways without a big squeezing hug. Above all, Desiree was fiercely protective of those she loved, especially her 12-year-old daughter, Aaliyah, with whom she shared a very strong and special bond.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. A part of us went with you, the day God took you home. If tears could build a stairway, and heartaches make a lane, we'd walk our way to Heaven and bring you back again. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place no one could ever fill. We love you Desiree.
Desiree is survived by a daughter, Aaliyah DeJulia of Sharon; two sisters, Nicole Costea and Courtney DeJulia, both of Sharpsville; two brothers, Eric Yount of Hermitage and Tony DeJulia Jr. of Sharpsville; and grandparents, Edward and Minerva Yount of Sharon.
She was preceded in death by a brother, Charlie Costea.
