Aunt Julia was a great aunt for all of us Gorecki kids. She was a great cook, a good listener, a devoted wife and mother, a role model. We lost touch the last few years, as our family moved around, but I thought of her always as the steady rock within the family. After Uncle Eddie and Bobby passed, she carried around a sadness that, I would guess, never left her. I am sure that she is with them now. All my love, Marge Gorecki Tsitouris

Aunt Julia was my Godmother, and my favorite aunt. Even if she, and Uncle Eddie, didn't give the Gorecki kids the best Christmas and birthday gifts (which they did), she would still be my favorite aunt! Aunt Julia had a quiet but warm and loving demeanor about her that made her very approachable. She had a calm about her that was very reassuring that all was well, even for a boy who was often not so sure. Rest in peace, Aunt Julia. I know that all is well with you, especially since you are now reunited with Uncle Ed and cousin Bob.
