The Weavers
Richard and Julianna met while he was on leave from the Navy. Within two days after meeting they were married and their somewhat fairy tale lives began.
They worked hard she as a secretary for the railroads and he a builder. Living in California they began collecting fine art and antiques, often direct from boats coming into Los Angeles from Europe. Richard treated Julianna as a queen and soon their home took on the furnishings of a palace. Each item in their collection has a story and they would fondly share them. The stories were connected with their collections and their travels. Julianna was Russian Yugoslavian and Richard was from a small town in the Midwest. Richard pursued his desire to return to his roots in their retirement.
Richard and Julianna moved to Berlin, Ohio in 1988 and began attending a local church. The church soon became their extended family. On their 50th wedding anniversary they had a church ceremony, renewed their marriage vows and had a wedding cake, something they did not have when they were married.
They were a colorful couple, always coordinating their outfits to match. If she wore a green suit, he would have on a green blazer. Their vintage clothing matched their palace- like lifestyle. They drove Cadillac cars with large eagles on the hood and an old Excalibar.
At church their hearts were in missions and a concern for the youth. They decided to give all they had to the church to be an endowment for missions and Christian education for youth. Each year at Christmas they would have the youth dress in their prom dresses and suits and entertain them in their dinning room with the fine sterling silver and china plates. The first year Richard carved a standing rib roast, but soon learned that this is not the favorite cuisine of today’s youth.
Julianna passed away recently from a rare liver disease. Richard is currently at Sumner on Merriman Retirement Home in Akron, Ohio. It is Richard’s desire that their worldly possessions would do well at an auction so that missions and youth would greatly benefit. A life lived in love, a collection of a lifetime, and a desire to leave a legacy that will extend their love into the entire world.
