Obituary for Julia Anne Lilley Maslanik

Julia Anne Lilley Maslanik

Julia was born February 27, 1930 in Lapeer, Michigan to Hazen Bristol Lilley and Esther Elizabeth Stock. Although she spent her early years on her father’s farm, the family moved to Lapeer by the time she started school. She graduated from Lapeer High School in 1948 and after a semester at Flint Junior College began nursing school at Providence Hospital in Detroit. In 1952 she graduated with her RN, married Harold Maslanik, and moved to Denver, Colorado where she worked at St. Anthony’s Hospital full time until her children were born and, then, part-time until 1965. She earned her private pilot’s license in 1967, followed by her commercial license in 1974. Her BS Degree from Colorado Women’s College was completed in 1979.

Julia and Harold traveled extensively in their latter years to Europe, Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand, and she, also, took each grandchild on a special trip. Parts of each winter were spent at their condominium in Florida. Sports were always an important part of her life. She skied, bowled, golfed, and enjoyed watching both football and baseball games.

Julia was predeceased by her parents, her brother, Lt. John Lilley (KIA 1943), her sister Joyce Crossman (1969), and her husband Harold Maslanik on March 3, 20201. Survivors include her three children, Anne Harris (Craig), John Maslanik ( Linda), Michael Maslanik, ten grandchildren, fifteen great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. Visitation will be September 7, 2021 at Olinger’s Crown Hill. Interment will be at Mt. Loretto Cemetery, Lapeer, MI on Friday, September 10th at 11:00 a.m. Father Brian Hurley will officiate.
