Messerle, Julia

It is with great sadness that the family of Julia Milbank Woch Messerle announces her passing on November 17, 2017 at the age of 31 years.

Born in Pequannock, New Jersey to Alexandra Milbank and Albert Woch. She was raised in Oak Ridge, NJ and lived in Hopatcong NJ with her family until the time of her death.

Julia will be lovingly remembered by her husband Conor, their son Carter, and her stepson Kyle.

Julia is survived by her parents Alexandra Milbank and Albert Woch and his wife Cheryl. She is also survived by her brother Albert Woch (Heather), her sister Rebecca Staub (Tom) and her extended family (in-laws) Bill and Sharon Messerle, their children and their spouses, Bill (Jill) Messerle, Meghan Hernandez, Beth (Adam) Jedlicka, and Caitlin (Elijah) DeGroat. And many aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.

Julia will be remembered for her beautiful smile, her joyous laughter, and unrestrained love for her family and friends. She was a daughter, sister, wife, aunt, and above all a mother who loved her boys with all her heart. Her strength and spirit were inspirational and she will be missed deeply.

A Christian Funeral Mass in celebration of Julia’s life will be held on Monday November 20, 2017 at 11 am at Our Lady Star of the Sea Roman Catholic Church, 204 Espanong Road Lake Hopatcong NJ. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to NJSOCF (New Jersey State Organization of Cystic Fibrosis) PO Box 3648 Wayne, NJ 07474

To all of Julia's family, we are so sorry to hear of her passing. Our hearts are breaking for you as you grieve this incredible loss. We did not know her well, but our paths crossed often (Blessed Beginnings, Titan Gymnastics, etc.). She had a beautiful smile & in the few conversations I had with her, it was clear how deeply she loved her family. Know that we will be praying for you all & wish you God's grace & comfort in these difficult days. Kiera, Thor, Espen, Anja & Evie Wespestad

My tears are streaming down my face right now as I try to write this, knowing my dear friend Alex from about 1979, and knowing the beautiful Julia, having even worked for and with me, and getting to know her beautiful personality. And even after having met her amazing adorable son, who hardly knew me, but would come in with his Grandma Alex to stop by and visit me at my workplace, and just come up and greet me and hug me, like he knew me his whole life, that was Julia's personality. My prayers and blessings go out to the entire family of this amazing woman who defeated all odds, anyone whom has ever crossed her path is so blessed to have ever known an angel such as she. With all my love and blessings, Cindy McKernan.
