When I think about my time spent with Auntie Juza, love and laughter always filled the room. As a child, I have memories of visits from Auntie and Uncle in Toronto, and our visits to Windsor; we were always so excited to see them. That excitement never changed as I got older and I feel very blessed to have the memories that we have made over the years. We will miss you very much, Auntie, and will carry you in our memories and hearts forever.

Love: Sarah, Andrew and Amelia

I can still hear Auntie’s voice loud and clear, as if she was here speaking to me. My sister and I had the pleasure of staying with auntie last spring when we came for a visit, and I’m so glad to have had that opportunity. We brought her pastizzi, and her face lit up! I will miss being able to visit, as we did each time we came to Windsor, but I know our family will keep her memory strong with the many memories we have to share from over the years.

Words cannot express the great sense of loss felt by the sudden passing of my mother. She was a kind, caring, generous person with a very big heart. Our family was everything to her and she would do whatever she could to support us.
I know she is now truly happy being with my father. You will be greatly missed mom. I love you.

I had the pleasure of meeting josie a few months ago through work. I was shocked to hear the news of her passing and still cannot believe I wont be seeing her again. Josie welcomed me into her home from day 1. I learned josie was a strong determined woman who loved her family to no end . I will miss our conversations and watching her and her sons playfully sass eachother. Thank you for your kindness, Josie. I sure will miss you. Sending much love and thoughts to every member of her family through this very difficult time. Liz (St.Elizabeth Healrhcare)

I can still remember my future in-laws being so concerned that I didnt speak up enough and that I was too quiet for their family. So after 38 years I think I've improved and I know how much Josie loved to hear me speak up. 🤗 I was always given unconditional love and was truly blessed.
Also loved having my parents always being invited to all gatherings. It truly meant the world to myself and my parents too. They were treated like family! We will miss you but know how happy and pain free you will be in heaven so you can get up and get George pastizzis. Love you 😘

We will miss this lovely lady...Josie. We were truly blessed to be loved and included as family to the home of Josie and George. Family was everything to them. Family get- togethers were loving planned with plenty of food and you always heard the word "eat, eat" from Josie. With smiles from Josie when ...everyone went home with more food then they could handle. We treasure the many happy memories of Josie and share in the sadness felt by family and friends. Josie will be forever in our hearts. With sympathy Allan & Margaret
