Former Juneau resident Julia Hudert of Vancouver, Wash., died June 28 in Vancouver.
She was born May 24, 1911, in the Bronx, N.Y. After marrying John D. Hudert, the couple moved to Nome, where they lived until 1950. The Hudert family lived in Juneau from 1950 to 1960. In addition to raising her six children, Hudert was active in the Juneau chapter of the Catholic Daughters of America and the Cathedral of the Nativity parish. During her decade in Juneau, Hudert worked as an assistant librarian at the Juneau City Library.
The family moved to Vancouver in 1961 where Julie remained active in local politics. Her family wrote that Hudert's "open door" policy to family and friends continues to be her legacy, living on in those who knew and loved her.
She was preceded in death by her husband John D. Hudert and daughters Andrea Ostlund and Christine Casperson.
She is survived by her son Fr. John Hudert of New York; daughters Maureen Eberhardt of Juneau, Sr. Dorothea Hudert of New York, and Kathleen Hudert of Washington; her 13 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.
Services were to be held today, July 3, at St. James in Vancouver, Wash. Donations in her memory may be made to either Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers or Maryknoll Sisters, Box 304, Maryknoll, N.Y., 10545.
