Katherine Juh Vlasic Hubbard


I am starting my blog in honor of my Grandma Kay. Her birthday is March 16, 1915, she died October 4, 1998. She was born in Karlovac Croatia and was an orphan during WWI. Her father Ivan Juh died serving as a soldier in WWI and her mother died during the great flu epidemic before 1919 because at the age of 4 she was brought to the United States in 1919 by her uncle Peter Vlasic. Peter and his wife (my grandmothers aunt) Katherine Juh Vlasic adopted her and raised her with their 5 children. My profile picture is her high school graduation in 1933 Detroit, Michigan. I think she attended Cass High School. She never liked the picture but I think she was beautiful. She was a dear Grandmother and I have lots of wonderful memories of her. I miss her very much.
