In 2007 she retired at the Provincial House at which time she was engaged in Rivier Alumni and Bible sharing with close friends. Throughout her years at the Provincial House, Sister Juliana found time to act as a volunteer at the Penitentiary. Twice a week she would attend mass and then give religion classes to the interested inmates who held her in great esteem. She truly enjoyed this kind of apostolate. Sister Juliana will be remembered for being a woman of strong faith and for her sincere, loving service of God’s people.
