Waterloo, Ontario: The day after Easter, Julie went to be with her Saviour and Lord Jesus after a courageous battle with cancer. Christ is risen indeed! Alleluia!
Julie was born to the late Alphonse Manetta and Yolanda (nee Maiorani) in Rochester on June 8, 1956. A graduate of the Eastman School of Music Preparatory Department and Bishop Kearney High School, in 1978 she obtained a Bachelor of Music Education from SUCNY Fredonia and married the Rev. Mark Hartburg on August 5. They are blessed with two daughters, Charissa (Stephen Jenken) of Ottawa and Kirsten (Gellert Czako) of Miami, Florida. Julie was ecstatic to be able to meet her first grandchild in the womb via ultrasound.
A violinist and teacher, Julie taught with Suzuki Talent Education of Waterloo and Brantford Suzuki Strings and had founded Grimsby Talent Education. She thought of her students as her "babies" and their parents as members of our extended family. A co-founder of the Grimsby Life Centre, she treasured life as a gift from God even in the midst of suffering.
Also dear to her is her faith-family scattered throughout a number of Lutheran congregations in North Tonawanda, N.Y.; Niles, Michigan; Staplehurst, Nebraska; Grimsby, Ontario and finally at Historic St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Kitchener, Ontario where a Service of thanksgiving will be held on April 5. On Saturday, 6 April at 2 p.m. a memorial service and interment will take place in the All Seasons Chapel at White Haven Memorial Park, 210 Marsh Road, Pittsford, N.Y.
Julie is survived by her sisters Jeanne and MaryAnn, a large extended family, beloved in-laws, and countless friends, sisters and brothers in Christ.
In lieu of flowers the family would be grateful for donations to be made to Historic St. Paul's Lutheran Church or Canadian Lutheran World Relief.
Funeral arrangements entrusted to Henry Walser Funeral Home, 519-749-8467 or visit www.henrywalser.com for JulieAnn's memorial.
