Danilovich, Juliane Panek Mrs. – Obituary

Union, Oregon

Juliane Danilovich, 83, of Union and formerly of La Grande, died Feb. 9, 2002, at her daughter’s home after a battle with cancer.

There will be a Celebration of Life service at 4 p.m. Friday at Loveland Funeral Chapel, 1508 Fourth St., in La Grande. The Rev. Doug Hale will officiate. There will be a potluck afterward at the chapel.

Mrs. Danilovich was born on Oct. 10, 1919, at Vienna, Austria, to Joseph and Maria Krula Panek. She met and married William Gschwandtner at Radstadt, Austria, where she worked in a bookstore. They had one daughter, Gertraud Gschwandtner. William was killed during World War II when his transport was destroyed returning to the Russian front.

Juliane worked for five years in Salzburg as a medical transcriptionist in the morgue of a hospital. During this time, she married Dragoslav Danilovich and they immigrated to the United States in 1950. They settled in the suburbs of Chicago, where they both were employed by the U.S. Postal Service.

Juliane spoke German, French, Yugoslav and English. She was an accomplished skier and mountain climber.

She moved to La Grande to be near her daughter in 1980, shortly after her husband’s death. During her retirement she enjoyed fishing, gardening, westerns, crossword puzzles, symphony music, books, family and good food.

Survivors include her daughter, Erika Danilovich of Union; grandchildren, Krystal and Amber Giambitti and Shawnna and Tony Danilovich. She lived with her one great-granddaughter, Selena Giambitti. She possibly is survived by Gertraude Gschwandtner of Austria, who the family has been trying to locate. Other relatives include her daughter, Brigitte Margiotta of La Grande and granddaughters, Lisa and Julie.

She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Karl and Franzie; and a sister, Josephine.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggest memorial contributions to the Union Public Library through the Loveland Funeral Chapel, 1508 Fourth St., La Grande, OR 97850.
