Juliette was known for her excellent cooking and sewing skills…She could also give you a great haircut if it was needed. If you were ever in her home she always had food on the table, no one ever went hungry. Her favorite phrase was “have some more…have some more".
Juliette was an excellent seamstress and made everything from Grad or Wedding dresses to Maternity outfits to mending your blue jeans with a sunshine on your back pocket. Always with a sense of humor Juliette enjoyed people in general and was a Social Butterfly.
Juliette loved music& could be seen “dancing with her walker”, keeping beat with quarters or spoons & playing the Harmonica. “Heel, Toe Polka “seemed to be her favorite.
The Family wishes to sincerely thank all the Staff at the Baldur Manor for looking after Mom with Humor, Love & Respect which she so deserved & appreciated.
