December 29, 1924 - April 17, 2022

Joy Doris Egidio, age 97, of Middletown, DE, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, April 17, 2022, surrounded by her loving family.

Born in Manhattan, NY, on December 29, 1924, she was a daughter of the late Henry and Katherine “Kitty” (Lindsky) Senese. She retired from Verizon after many dedicated years of service.

Joy was known as Grandma Joy to everyone. She enjoyed crafting, cooking, and decorating for Christmas. She loved to dance, especially to Frank Sinatra. You could always count her in for a competitive card game and a game of Bingo at the Senior Center. Most of all, she loved her grandchildren and spending time with her family and cherished the memories made while traveling with her sister and sister-in-law.

In addition to her parents, Joy was preceded in death by her husband, Nicholas “Nick” Egidio, son, Anthony Egidio, sister, Judy Murphy, and son-in-law, Joseph Satta. She is survived by her daughter, Debbie Satta; grandchildren, Josephine Roberts (Dylan), Katie Satta, and Kevin Satta; and great-granddaughter, Margaux Roberts.

Services will be held privately.

The stories from the senior bus trips were my favorite. Whether to the outlets or the casinos, you & Auntie Fran giggling so hard while telling us, which sometimes made it hard for you to convey, but always had us laughing hysterically too. You will live on in our hearts for the rest of our lives. 🙏
