Philadelphia Inquirer, The (PA) - January 6, 1983 Deceased Name: ELISA CIRIACO DILULLO, 89 Elisa Ciriaco DiLullo, 89, a Philadelphia restaurateur, died Tuesday at North Penn Hospital in Lansdale. A former resident of Ambler, Miami Beach and Philadelphia, she moved to Lansdale in the late 1960s.
Mrs. DiLullo, the widow of Nicola DiLullo, operated restaurants in Philadelphia, Atlantic City and in Florida for nearly half a century.

Born in Buonanotte, Italy, Mrs. DiLullo grew up in what she called the proper setting - surrounded by family, good music and fine food. Trained as an operatic soprano, she sang with the Miami opera and worked with church choirs throughout her life.
A member of St. Stanislaus Parish in Lansdale, she sang as the lead soprano in its choir until she was disabled by illness in November. She was active in the St. Stanislaus Altar and Rosary Society.
She is survived by a daughter, Rosina Gore, and three grandchildren.
