Julia was first and foremost a loving mom and grandma. There was always room at the table for one more. We grew up on homemade bread, jellies, pierogies, and fruit pies. She loved her garden, nothing beat propagating roses, dead heading zinnias and pulling weeds. She was a fierce and loyal friend. Mom was extremely proud of her Polish heritage.
We are extremely grateful for the loving care Mom received from both the Baptist Homes and Bridges Hospice.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Baptist Homes Society, 489 Castle Shannon Blvd., Pittsburgh, PA 15234 or Bridges Hospice, 515 Pleasant Valley Rd., Trafford, PA 15085.
