Obituary of Julianne C. Allen

ILION - Julianne “Jules” Catherine Allen, unexpectedly passed away of natural causes, in her home, on Monday, September 3, 2018 in Ilion, NY at the age of 57.


Julianne was born on December 13, 1960 in New Hartford, NY to the late Charles Sr., and Philomena “Fay” (Julian) Allen, who predeceased her. She graduated from Ilion High School in 1979, from MVCC with a degree in Advertising in 1991, and from Syracuse University with a degree in Public Relations and Business Administration in 1992.


Julianne followed in the footsteps of her mother as a piano teacher. She recently began working for Allstate Insurance in Yorkville as a Licensed Sales Producer, following successful completion of several New York State licensing exams. 


Julianne was accomplished in theater productions and performed with the Ilion Little Theatre Club. She was a generous individual who cleaned up stray cats and cared for her brother following the passing of their parents. She was also an active American Diabetes Association Advocate, having battled juvenile onset diabetes since the young age of 8. Julianne loved Halloween, hosting memorable celebrations, had a contagious laugh and great sense of humor, and loved to bake for all occasions; and let us not forget her love for The Wizard of Oz!


Julianne is survived by her son Michael Yelle, Jr.; her sister, Patricia Cofrancesco and husband, James of Liverpool, NY; her brothers, Charles Allen of Mohawk, NY, and Edward Allen and son Kenneth Allen of Covington, Louisiana and son Edward of Herkimer; her nephew, James Cofrancesco, wife Jena and children, Dominic, Zachary, and Skye, Liverpool, NY; her niece, Fay Cofrancesco and family of White Hall, MD; her Aunt Helen Buttiglieri, Aunt Connie Gigliotti, and Aunt Josephine Serour; many cousins, friends, and beloved pets.


A Celebration of Julianne’s Life will be held at the Enea and Ciaccia Family Funeral Home on 4309 Acme Road, Town of Fankfort, Ilion, NY, from 3:00PM – 5:00PM on Monday, September 10, 2018, with a memorial service to be held at 5:00PM. All are welcome to attend.
