Life Story for Mary Jo Juelis

Mary Jo (Wade) Juelis, 71, formerly of Westfield, died peacefully on Thursday, December 28, 2017 at Cape Cod Hospital after a courageous, six-year battle with cancer.
Born in Elizabeth, New Jersey on February 28, 1946, to Joseph J. Wade and Ruth Wade. Mary Jo moved with her family to Westfield, first living on Clifton Street and then on Knollwood Terrace. Mary Jo attended Holy Trinity School and graduated from Westfield Senior High School in 1964. She attended Immaculata College in Philadelphia, and graduated with Honors from Kean University. She was awarded her Masters of Education in Administration/Leadership from Bank Street College in New York City.
Mary Jo met her beloved husband, John, while vacationing at the New Jersey shore. They were married on June 18, 1966 at the Holy Trinity Church in Westfield. After living in Iceland, Spain, and other east coast locations, the couple returned to live in Westfield in 1970, and would spend the next 47 years in their Fairacres Avenue home. Mary Jo was a teacher at the Presbyterian Church’s nursey school, and then at Jefferson Elementary School where she taught kindergarten and first grade for 29 years until her retirement in 2016. Mary Jo and John moved full time to Cummaquid, MA in 2017 after splitting time between their New Jersey and Cape Cod homes.
Mary Jo is survived by her husband of 51 years, John; her sisters Laura Blair and Ruth Wade-Nawrocki; her brothers Joe Wade, Jr and Richard Wade; her sons J. Juelis of Los Angeles, CA, Craig Juelis and his wife Amy of Grafton, MA, and Mark Juelis and his wife Krista of Fort Washington, PA. Mary Jo was also a loving grandmother, known as “Mimi” to her grandchildren Emma, Ian, Henry, and Theo.
Mary Jo enjoyed gardening in her spare time along with spending time with her weekly knitting group on Cape Cod. She was a fixture at her son’s sporting events from grade school through college. She volunteered her time as a colonial cooking exhibitor at the Miller-Cory House in Westfield as well participating with her sons in 4-H raising dogs for the Seeing Eye in Morristown, NJ. She enjoyed time spent laughing and talking with her many cousins and other extended family members.
Most of all, she enjoyed spending her time with her four grandchildren going on different adventures, hunting for hermit crabs at the beach, or sharing a good book on the couch.
Family and friends may call at Dooley Colonial Funeral Home, 556 Westfield Avenue, Westfield, on Tuesday, January 2nd from 4:00 to 8:00 pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered on Wednesday, January 3rd at 10:00 am at St. Helen’s Catholic Church on Rahway Avenue, Westfield. Internment will follow at Fairview Cemetery, 1100 East Broad Street, Westfield.
