    Wake Reflection by Sister Natalie Binversie, Community Director
    Julia Wickesberg was the oldest of seven children, 3 girls and 4 boys including 2 sets of twins. She and her twin sister, Agnes, were born in Appleton, Wisconsin on March 11, 1908 and Baptized at St. Joseph Church in Appleton on March 15th. Her sister, Betty, born in 1910 also entered the convent. She received the name Sister Agnes Marie and died on August 11, 1985.

    Sister Julius wanted to be a Sister from the time she was in 3rd grade at St. Joseph’s School having been influenced by the kindness of the Notre Dame Sisters who taught her. She did not go to high school after graduating from 8th grade in 1923, but helped out at home. At the age of 16 she got a job at Zwicker’s Knitting Factory making gloves. June 20, 1929 she entered Holy Family Convent and completed high school here. Her father was a convert and was a little opposed to her going to the Convent. She was advised to ask to take his name, Julius, for her Religious name, which she did. He was proud of her being a Sister in the end and accepting of her decision.

    After taking final Vows in 1935 Sister Julius began teaching. During the 59 years in education she taught students in Grades 2 through 8—was a Remedial Teacher and a Principal. All of her years of ministry were spent in the Diocese of Green Bay except for one year when she was missioned to teach in the Learning Center at St. Joseph School in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

    We could say that Sister Julius was a life-time learner. In 1933 she graduated from Holy Family Academy ranking 2nd in a class of 17. In 1955 she earned her Bachelor of Science Degree from St. Norbert College. To earn her Master’s Degree in Education from Marquette University in 1964, Sister Julius wrote her thesis on “Critical Thinking in the Upper Elementary Grades.” Sister Julius also took a special course in remedial teaching so when she stopped teaching full time she could teach students who needed more help.

    Sister Julius loved life. Retirement for her was like an extended summer vacation. After her teaching years she was a sponsor presence at St. Paul Elder Services for a year and the following two years a caretaker for her sister. When Sister Julius returned to the Motherhouse in 1995 she was active in Community Service doing various tasks. In recent years Sister Julius took her ministry of praying for those ministering at St. Mary’s Clarks Mills and St. Michael’s Whitelaw seriously and embraced all that came into her life. She had exceptionally good health and always a smile for everyone.

    At the time of her 75th Diamond Jubilee in 2007 Sister Julius said she was more than ready to take up residence in the next life, joining the Wickesberg family and her many friends who would no doubt be there to welcome her home. Many times when she would need help of any kind she would say, “Oh Lord, take this pilgrim home!” God finally did answer her prayer. God came to take Sister Julius home to heaven on Monday afternoon. Sister Michael was privileged to share that sacred time with her. Sister Julius lived 106 years for God. She was a model of faithfulness and commitment for 81 years, witnessing loving, selfless dedication and service as a Franciscan Sister of Christian Service. We are grateful.

    Eternal rest grant to Sister Julius, may she rest in peace. Amen!
