I remember seeing Sr. Juliana in a wheelchair several years ago in the back of the Provincial House Chapel. She was so happy to see all of us. My greatest memory was the year she was off campus on sabbatical. She was driving up the “A” one Friday afternoon and our sign, hanging out of a dorm window, "Out of the zoo in 72," caught her eye. She plowed into my car (except it was my sister’s car that I had borrowed)! I was happy to know that nuns had insurance! God bless Sr. Juliana. She is probably already working on science projects in heaven!”

Remember when we stole the arm from the skeleton and scared the crap out of Paulette? That was hilarious! Sr. Juliana was a gift. She knew her anatomy and passed her knowledge on to us. We were fortunate to have her as an instructor. – Hope Heaven Hatch
I remember the time that those of us who were not nurses were supposed to be dissecting frogs, and Ann-Marie let many of them escape out the back door of the lab. Sr. Juliana said she did not believe our story that it was an "accident." She said we could not get out of it that easily, and replacement frogs were located and arrived shortly thereafter. Good times, fond memories, for all but the replacement frogs, of course. – Leslie Fulton Weatherly
Another ‘icon’ gone. – Chris Mele
She called me Virginia the entire year, and the one time I corrected her, she replied, "Yes, I know, Virginia." I will always remember her. – Veronica Duggan Flynn
Remember those fetal pigs! – Jayne Bianco Cohill
She did know her anatomy! I was able to spend some time with her last year at the reunion. It was a precious experience. She was a great lady. – Maureen Maloy Biggers
One of my greatest memories of her and her class was the oral anatomy exam with that stupid skeleton. She couldn’t catch me, so she went to some minute fissures in the brain. Didn’t do well in logic, but I could memorize! She still couldn’t stump me. It was one of my best memories of her, and you are right, the old gal knew her anatomy! - Julie Lombard Venuti
All I can say is, "Are you with me on that?" She did know her biology. – Susanne Palmer
