Moved to Nokomis, Florida in 1984 until returning to Park Ridge in 2011. Justine will be fondly remembered for her exuberance, easy laugh and thorough enjoyment of family, friends and all who crossed her path. Her curiosity, love of a good story and pragmatic take on life kept her engaging with folks through the last moments of her time with us. Justine will be greatly missed, yet her “Justine-isms” will remain with us forever…
