When we were young, she was like an Auntie to us. She was so girly and loved the three Dembek girls as she had no daughters.. I remember her putting nail polish on for us and passing on to us her bridesmaid gowns. We loved playing dress up in them. One Christmas she wanted to play SANTA CLAUS with the outfit our parents had hidden. There were problems of course. She couldn't change her voice to a much deeper tone and we had noticed that Santa had nail polish on!! Jozia loved to have fun . She enjoyed being with us as we enjoyed being with her. I'll remember her laugh and sense of humor, and the scarves she knitted for us when we were so very young.
