It might seem weird writing about a person who passed away four days ago, but it’s also meaningful. Julianna, a person I never got to know, seemed like the greatest lunch lady to ever work at a school. Unfortunately, after a hard battle with cancer on Monday, she went on to the next stage of her life.
After reading the daily bulletin, I learned that Julianna was an important part of my school. Julianna was one of the few Hungarian people at our school, which was, in fact, founded by monks from Hungary. She was known for giving large portions in the serving counter because that was her way of “giving,” to us. In addition, Julianna’s cheerful mood and bright smile supposedly made the food she served much more enjoyable. I could tell that her co-workers were really sad about her death because Julianna brought life to the kitchen. She made an ordinary job an extraordinary one. I guess what I can take away from this is how an energetic spirit can impact so many peoples’ lives.
