Obituary for Julia M. Duchow

April 28, 1925 - April 30, 2017
San Antonio, Texas | Age 92


Julia M. Duchow has earned her angel wings on April 30, 2017 in San Antonio, Texas at the age of 92. Her last days were spent surrounded by the family that she loved so much.

She is known for her elegant sense of style, her strong opinions, and her amazing sense of humor. She made a difference in the lives of many during her service as a corporal in the Army-Air Force to her country during World War II attending as a surgical nurse. During this time she received an American theatre ribbon, a victory medal and a good conduct medal. After her service, she continued to help others by bolstering confidences through her amazing work as a beautician at Lady Bird.

Julia was born in Pixley, California April 28, 1925 to Tsugino and IsamuTanaka. She married Wallace Duchow on October 1948. Together they raised five children. Her children, Linda Oringderff and Brenda Brooks (m. Alvin) survive her. 8 grandchildren: Shannon Collins, Tracey Pinczehelyi, Stacey Horton (m. Jerry), Charlotte Norman (m. Casey), Gregory Duchow (m. Shelley), Stephen Duchow (m. Rosette), Sherri Bishop (m. Brice), and Deseree Lamb (m. Tim) and 19 great grandchildren: Dylan, Tyler, Lenox Michiko, Dash, Chelsea, Hunter, Madison, Courtney, Nick, Caleb, Amber, Isaac, Alyssa, Zachary, Aiden, Peyton, Addison, Emmalyn, and Brenton also survive her.

Her parents, her husband, and her children, W. Greg Duchow and Patricia Duchow, precede her in death.

We will all remember Julia's contagious smile, her warmth and her energy. Her kind and generous spirit will leave a lasting impression on everyone she's known and cared for. She may be gone, but her memory will remain with us forever.
