Julia Haavisto, of Mora, Minnesota, died on Thursday, August 23, 2007 at the Villa Health Care Center in Mora. She was 71 years old.
NO FUNERAL SERVICES will be held.
Julia Ann Haavisto was born on April 13, 1936 to Joe and Hazel (Schumacher) Hampey in Pine County, Minnesota. She came from a large family. Julia had three children, Kim, Jeff and Troy.
Julia was a great cook. She enjoyed creating new recipes, especially in the last couple years when she had a restricted diet. Julia enjoyed her chocolates and cotton candy! She loved living at Pine Crest for the last 6 years where she felt safe and appreciated. Julia kept tract of things by subscribing to both the Pine City Pioneer and the Kanabec County Times.
Julia would cheerfully tell you that she accepted salvation through Jesus Christ and was baptized as an adult in obedience to the Bible. She asked that when you sing “Jesus Loves Me” that you think of her.
She wanted her children to know that she loved them. She also wanted all her Pine Crest friends to know that she loved living there. She will be missed by her friends.
