To all Julie's relatives and friends,
We want to tell you how deeply saddened we were to hear of what we think of as the unexpected death of our unique and wonderful friend Julie. She was a prized lector at Holy Trinity Church in West Harwich and a travel companion with us on pilgrimages to Ireland, Lourdes and Fatima., and the Holy Land. We were often guests at her table in Dennis Port and Carlos and I even traveled to see her in New Mexico. In response to a Halloween card I had sent her on October 15th as I prepared to leave on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, the last communication from her was a voice message on my phone on October 18th - saying she had gotten the card but had fallen and was due for surgery. Sadly, at the time I couldn't retrieve the message and wouldn't until after I returned on October 26th. I realize now that on October 25th, the day Julie died, I was in fact con-celebrating Mass at the altar on the site of Calvary in Jerusalem praying for all family and friends who had died , in retrospect it seems appropriate for many reasons seeing that Julie was then or about to also be among them. We were always lifted up by her good humor, delighted by her hospitality and felt supported by the prayers she prayed for us and we trust she is still doing so from a better place. We will miss her terribly!!
With our sincere sympathy,
Fr. Edward Healey, Fr. Carlos Patino, Fr. Marek Chmurski

Julie taught 4 of my 5 children at Roberts Elementary. They loved her as a teacher and credit her with learning how to study. I also would see her at St.Matthew wbere she taught Catechism and was a fellow parishioner.
May she rest in peace
