Obituary for Philippa Bilotti

Philippa Iorio Bilotti, most recently of Denville, NJ, died peacefully on December 19, 2018. She was born on September 24th, 1936 in Morristown, the youngest child of Frank and Filippa Iorio. A graduate of the Academy of Saint Elizabeth in Morristown, Philippa went on to receive a BA degree in economics from Connecticut College in New London in 1958. She worked at a brokerage firm in New York and later in Morristown for several years. Philippa married Richard Bilotti in 1961 and they lived and raised their son, Richard Jr., in Morris Township until 2012 when they moved to Denville.
Philippa was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She was a very kind and thoughtful woman with a strong sense of community. She spent 27 years volunteering at Morristown Memorial Hospital, delivering mail and cheering up patients as she went about her route. She loved to cook, enjoyed the theater and relished entertaining her family and many friends. She was a lively conversationalist and in recent years her favorite topic was her beloved granddaughter. She was an avid reader and letter writer, using a series of well-worn typewriters. Philippa lived with Parkinson’s disease for over 20 years with stoic courage, grit and determination. Despite her recent struggles, she continued to work on the New York Times crossword puzzle nearly every day.
Philippa was predeceased by her parents, Frank and Filippa Iorio, and her brother, Ralph Iorio. She is survived by her devoted husband, Richard Bilotti, her son Richard Bilotti Jr. (Jo-Anne Williams), and granddaughter, Elizabeth Bilotti and nieces Lani Stout, Lois Iorio, Jodi Iorio, Janice Winn and Lynn Scudese. Visitation will be held on Friday, December 21st from 4pm to 7 pm at Doyle Funeral Home, 106 Maple Avenue, Morristown, NJ 07960. Funeral Mass will be said on Saturday, December 22nd at 9:30 am at 91 Maple Avenue, Morristown with burial to follow at Holy Rood Cemetery.
