Teresa DiTullio

July 14, 1921 ~ December 19, 2021 (age 100)


Thousand Oaks, CA

100 years of music.  Teresa DiTullio started playing the violin as a little girl.  In her early 20s, she joined the Brodetsky orchestra where she met her husband Justin DiTullio (cellist), and became part of the well-known DiTullio family of musicians.  At age 53, she studied with Emanuel Compinsky, one of the renowned violin teachers of the time, to become a violin teacher.   Almost 50 years as a teacher, she impacted and touched the lives of her students and their families, many of whom remained close until her final hours.

She is survived by her son Jerry DiTullio;  grandchildren Nicole Crutcher, Brandon DiTullio, and Jeffrey DiTullio; and 5 great-grandchildren, Katelin (16) and Jacquelin (11) Crutcher, and Leela (11) Carson (9) and Michael (2) DiTullio. 

A graveside service will be held at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday January 4, 2022 at Holy Cross Cemetery, Culver City.
