Julie A. (Ozella) Quinlan
June 17, 2020


On June 17, 2020, Julie Andrea Quinlan of Franklin, MA was taken from here to the world our beliefs carry us to.

Julie leaves behind her loving husband Steven, her son John Yadisernia of Wrentham, her daughter Danielle and husband Jared Dolan of Hull, her daughter Rebecca and husband Casey Askeland of Waltham and Catherine Quinlan of Franklin.

In addition, the love of her grandchildren Kylie Yadisernia (12), Victoria (13) and Naomi Dolan (10), and Cora Askeland (2).

Daughter of Anthony Ozella JR. and the late Carolyn J. (Osborne) Ozella, stepmother Kathleen Burnett Ozella of East Dennis and siblings Anthony III (Rocky), his wife Kathleen of Yarmouth, Danny Ozella of Clermont FL, and Michael and his wife Maria of Upton, sisters Karen Formalarie and husband Joe of Hopedale, Nancy Timmins and husband Chet of Plympton, Deborah Ozella of Framingham, Kathryn Bakalars and husband Jay of Franklin, Andrea Sherman and husband John of North Attleboro and Tara Ozella of East Dennis. She is predeceased by her sister Vanessa Farley (Husband Frank) formerly of Medway. She also leaves siblings Patsi Genoa and husband Donny of Yarmouth and Frank Osborne and his wife Karen of Milford.

Julie also leaves behind her loving and caring inlaws James L. and Catherine P. Quinlan of Yarmouthport. Her brothers and sisters in law P.J. and Roberta Quinlan of Huntington Beach, CA, Regina and William St. John of South Yarmouth, Jeffery Quinlan of Coral Springs Florida, and Jennifer and Mark Denommee of South Yarmouth.

She leaves behind many loving nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles from both sides of her family.

Julie loved the beach, especially South Beach, M.V. and Corporation Beach, Dennis, she loved music, the outdoors, and conversing with family and friends. She was gifted with many talents, caring for people of all ages was one of her true callings. She was a very giving person who was ready and able with good humor and a shoulder to cry on. She was a giver, not a taker. Julie was an extremely creative and talented artist as well, with talents of drawing, painting, craftwork, pottery, stained glass, jewelry making, sewing and crocheting. She has passed many of these talents along to her children, and grandchildren. While in her twenties, with two small children, Julie modeled for publications and advertisements, and was very successful at it. Nobody could have asked for a more patient, hardworking, and loving mother.

Julie has always been an advocate for organ donation. From the earliest years she instilled in her four children the importance of being an organ donor, so that once we no longer needed our body, it could go to someone who did. Upon her death, Julie fell into a 2% group of eligible donors for a successful donation. Her lungs, liver, and both kidneys were successfully transplanted to save or improve the lives of four people.

Julie’s memory will live on forever in the hearts of her surviving family and friends, as well as their minds and actions. Although she was taken too soon, her 58 years on this Earth left a tremendous impact on those who knew, or even encountered her. She was truly a very special person.

In closing this horribly painful notice, our family asks anyone who knew Julie, to please take a moment to look inward and remember the amazing woman she was.

Thank you and God Bless,
Quinlan, Dolan, Askeland, and Yadisernia families.

A Celebration of Julie's Life will be held at a later date and will be announced.

The Charles F. Oteri and Son Franklin Funeral Home 33 Cottage St. is honored to assist Julie's family.
