Justina May Battles "Jessie"

Justina May Battles "Jessie" went to be with her Heavenly Father on May 8, 2012. Born in Devens Hollow, PA on July 16, 1934 to Julia Buckus and Michael Mendick. She attended Ehrenfeld Grade School and South Fork Croyle High School. She was a loving mother, sister and best friend; she always gave 100% of her love and her resources to her children and family. She also provided her home and love to many of her children's friends that came from troubled homes; they still refer to her as "Mom". As she put it, "You are only a child once." She had a wonderful sense of humor and was able to make a whole room laugh. She was also great storyteller and was able to capture everyone's attention. She was extremely intelligent and was often consulted by family and friends for advice on a gambit of subjects such as gardening, cooking, love and life's challenges. She enjoyed crossword puzzles, was great at scrabble and an avid boggle player. She loved all animals especially her cat and Dog.

She worked at Hughes Aircraft, Revell, Horshoe & Gardena Club and retired from the IRS. She excelled in all noted positions. She was beautiful person inside and out, a wonderful roll model and as far as we are concerned pretty as a model.
