Letter from Josephine Julian

April 11, 2008
Dear Coletti Family Reunion,

I am Josephine Angelo Julian. My mother was Catherine Coletti, a daughter of Louis and Theresa Coletti. I was born Sept. 27, 1924 in Kemmerer, Wyo., the oldest of four children born to Joe Angelo and Catherine Coletti. My mother died when I was 11 years old and my Grandma Angelo came out on the ranch and helped my dad. I know Uncle Pete's family was very good to my mother when she was sick.

I have lost my husband of over 55 years, my son Charles 48 years old and my 43 year old baby in a truck wreck hauling our sheep. My son Truman (?) is 63 years old and has three children 2 sons and 1 daughter and 6 grand children.

I have two daughters and 5 grandchildren and 11 great-granddaughters and 6 great-grandsons. At my age I don't have anyone that I can ask about my mother's family.

I would like more information on the family, in fact I think I sent someone 50.00 one time.

We have had one of the worst winters here on the ranch, a lot of snow, cold and wind. Our sheep are coming back from the desert and the snow isn't moving very fast and little lambs will start arriving about the 10th or 15th of May and they lamb on the range.

Thank you for remembering me and I might come if I can get someone to drive me down to Ogden Park for the reunion.

May God Bless you all and keep you in his care.

If any of you would like Josephine's address or phone number, let me know.

Our Family

It sure was good to see everyone at the family reunion in April! Here are some thoughts and pictures from the reunion:

I didn't get to take many pictures, but I know that there are more out there! Let me know and I'll post them for everyone!

Thanks again, and I think we should certainly have another reunion next year. The more we get together, the closer we will become.

Agenda (somewhat)

Hello all-- The reunion is coming up this Saturday from 9 - 5 pm! I wanted everyone to get an idea of what will be happening. To start out, we will have some time for people to come in and get acquainted. If you did not get a chance to fill out the "get to know you" form that I emailed out, this will provide some time for you to do so.

Around 10 am, we will have some small presentations concerning genealogy and old family pictures. I invite anyone coming to participate in these presentations, because I know you all know a lot more about our family than I do!

At about 11 am, most of you should have arrived, and we will play some "getting to know you" games and have everyone introduce themselves.

This should carry over until lunch, which will start shortly before 12:00 noon.

At around 1 pm, we will walk up to the North Ogden Cemetery and tour some of the headstones that are of family interest.

1:30 or 2:00 pm, weather permitting, we will have softball and volleyball games for everyone to participate in. Individual family and group pictures will also be taken at this time.

I think that will be enough activity to carry us through the end of the day. I really encourage you to contact me if you would like to show family pictures, tell special stories, etc. I hope we have a lot of participation!

Thanks, and we will see you soon!
