Julia Jean Marie (Wojtal) (Voytal) Tomsic Obituary
Julia Jean Marie, nee (Wojtal) (Voytal) Tomsic, age 84, passed away peacefully at home on February 25, 2013. She was a resident of Warren, Mich. and was born in the small coal mining town of Sagamore, PA. on August 14, 1928. She attended and graduated from Sagamore Public School and Commerce High School in Detroit. Her father died from injuries sustained in a mining accident. He left a young wife with seven living young children. Julia was the youngest of 11 children. She never knew her father as she was less than two years old. This was the time of the Depression and there were not any government payouts or entitlements. Life was extremely difficult for the family. When the family moved to Michigan, she became an executive secretary for the vice president of Michigan Abrasive Company and later the vice president/treasurer of Applied Design. She possessed the demeanor of a diplomat and the words of an orator as her words flowed quite eloquently. She could call you down in such a manner that you would think it was a compliment. Julia was a sophisticated and a fantastic person; fair but firm. She was an excellent wife and mother and she will be greatly missed by all. As a young child when her mother asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up. She replied that she wasn't going to marry one of those miner's son and have a bunch of kids. What she did do, however, was come to Michigan and married a miner's son and had a bunch of kids. She is survived by her husband, Walter; three daughters and one son, Cynthia M. (Daniel) Dunlop of Sterling Heights, Vanessa A. (Patrick) Torres of Prudenville, Mich., Victoria L. (David) Kieleszewski of Romeo, Mich., and Walter J. (Maria Poletta) of Clinton, Mich.; one sister, Henrietta (William) Angelo of Warren, Mich. She was predeceased in death by her son, Mark Allen; her parents John and Mary (nee Puziewicz) Wojtal; brothers Leo, infant, twins Joseph and Thomas, infants, Stanley, Frank, Henry and John; sisters Jennie, infant, and Mary (Adolf) Yanis. Julia was a world traveler. She especially enjoyed her six week trip to Australia and New Zealand. She often mentioned it in a nostalgic way; a trip she could easily extended another six weeks. She was a member of the Polish Genealogical Society of Michigan and a lifetime founding member of the American Polish Cultural Center. She was of Roman Catholic faith and a member of St. Mark RC Church in Warren, Mich. She especially enjoyed family get-togethers and hosted many parties at her home.
