Rest in peace Aunt Julianne. You were a big part of my childhood, i know my mom loved you so, you are now in heaven talking and laughing  with her again.Love from your niece, Cindy

Dear cousins,  What a wonderful lady your mom was, always with a twinkle in her eye, always ready to  share a laugh and enjoy life. But she had her serious side too, because she was smart and hard-working and provided for herself and her family over the years. And then you, in turn, took such good care of her as she got older. She will be missed by all the people whose lives she touched. I’m sorry that I am not able to come from Florida for the service, but I will visit at the cemetary the next time I am in Lancaster.  Cassie Wagner-Reiss
