Juliana was born October 17, 1923, in Menasha, the daughter of Alvin and Jennie (Kropidlowski) Dombrowski. She was employed for close to 40 years with the former Gilbert Paper Company and retired in 1985. Juliana was a parishioner at St. John Catholic Church in Menasha, and for the past three years she was living at Prairie Homes. Juliana enjoyed putting together jigsaw puzzles, card playing, polka dancing, going to the casino, and watching the Packers on Sundays. She loved going out to eat at Dick and Joan’s in Appleton and traveling up North to her son’s cottage at Spirit Lake to fish. Getting together at the family home was a tradition for their holidays and Juliana was a great baker and made awesome soups.
