Julia was born on December 26, 1927 in Kompolje, Slovenia and passed away on March 4, 2022. She married the love of her life, Herman, on February 28, 1959 in Paris and together they raised their four children in Kirtland, Ohio, in the home they built. Strong in her faith, Julia was a founding member of Divine Word Catholic Church. She enjoyed being a member of Slovenska Pristava and attending their events, especially the Slovenian dances. She enjoyed cooking, baking, sewing, and especially gardening. She loved working in her yard, tending to her flower and vegetable gardens. In her later years, she treasured the memories she and Herman made as they traveled. She also cherished the time she had with her grandchildren. She was a true caregiver to, not only her family, but her extended family in Slovenia and all those she encountered and for that she will be dearly missed.
