So sorry for your loss. Many memories of Julia help sew for 4-H . My mom, Barbara Rismiller and Julia shared a birthday. Mom always said Julia was almost always the first to send a birthday card.

Tom, Jim, Gary, & Jacquie,
You have my deepest sympathies. There are a lot of memories between our two families. After school, we spent a lot of time playing softball at your house. We would play football there also. Basketball was at the Fourman's, Pool at Billenstein's.
On weekends our parents got together to play cards. To our neighbors, take care and be safe!
Create a lot of great memories with your families.

My deepest condolences to your family. Your mother and my mother, Evelyn Stuck, were such good friends for so many years. I'll never forget how helpful and kind your mother was for so many years when my mother couldn't drive anymore, taking her places, especially their Monday lunches and outings. I'll always remember Julia for that and being such a sweet and loving friend to my mom.
