Julia Ann Trigalet

July 25, 1922 ~ October 3, 2021 (age 99)


Julia Ann Trigalet, 99, of Danville, passed away Sunday, October 3, 2021 at her home surrounded by her family.  Julia was born in Danville on July 25, 1922, the daughter of Joseph F. and Matilda (Ruszan) Pitlik.  Julia married Victor J. Trigalet and they spent the next 60 years together.  He preceded her in death in February 2008.

Julia is preceded in death by her son, William Joseph Trigalet, her parents, three brothers: Joseph Pitlik Jr., Frank Pitlik, and William Pitlik; five sisters: Mary Dalbey, Irma Porter, Esther Rodman, Helen Gillum, and Elizabeth Pitlik.

Julia is survived by two sisters:  Tillie (Charlie) Dietz and Joann Dernluc; two grandsons: Eric (Jill) Trigalet and Scott Trigalet; one granddaughter Beth (Mike) Schmitt; eight great-grandchildren: Chance, Sydney, and Kaden Trigalet; Max, Logan, and Rex Schmitt; Allison and Taylor Trigalet.

Julia had many skills and always enjoyed learning new ones.  She enjoyed gardening, quilting, painting, sewing, ceramics, and crocheting.  But her greatest passion was being a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.  Her grandchildren and then her great-grandchildren were her whole world and she loved spending time with them.  Her influence on them will stay with them their entire lives.  Julia was by far the most loving and giving person who even at age 99 loved talking to people and learning their history.

There will be a visitation from 4-7 pm on Monday, October 11, 2021 at Kruger Coan Pape Funeral Home, 10 E. Williams Street in Danville.  Rosary will be at 3:30 pm on Monday, October 11, 2021 prior to the visitation.  Funeral Mass will be at 10:45 am on Tuesday, October 12, 2021 at Holy Family Church, 444 E.
