A funeral service in remembrance of Juliette will be held on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. at Immanuel United Church of Christ, 501 Walnut St. West Bend, WI. 53095. Juliette’s family will greet relatives and friends at the church from 11:00 a.m. until the time of the service. The Saukville American Legion Auxiliary will do their walk through ceremony at 12:30 p.m. Burial will take place at St. Finbar Cemetery at a later date.

Since Juliette’s favorite color was red, please honor her by wearing something red to the funeral.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are appreciated to the Saukville Historical Society or the Saukville American Legion Auxiliary.

Juliette’s family would like to thank the Cedar Home staff and Cedar Hospice for their compassionate care and support.
