Obituary of Juliet Georgiana Buckley Alsup Korst
Noted eyebrow raiser, Juliet Georgiana Buckley Alsup Korst, after a fair amount of deliberation, decided to shuffle off this mortal coil to join her beloved friends and family in the next great adventure. Having defeated four primary cancers and multiple complications, in her new life she will once again waltz with babies, jump rope in living rooms, and hike hills masquerading as Maine mountains.
Her devoted husband, Robert J. Korst, will miss her kindness, generosity, and her unfailing ability to joyfully put others first. They shared a deep and abiding faith in the Holy Trinity, and together they brought musical joy to Mass, traveled to lands near and far, and celebrated having a second chance at love with each other.
Julie leaves behind eight children: Shelton William Alsup, Katherine Ann Fernandez and husband Louis, Patrick James Alsup and wife Theresa, Elizabeth Clare Plake and husband James, John Locke Alsup and wife Mei, Margaret Mary Steinhilber and husband Carl, Mary Genevieve Rehmann and husband Dan, and Damon Lynn Joseph Alsup, all of whom carry forward her love of singing in harmony, solving puzzles, and licking pie plates. Her clever sense of humor, brilliant smile, and generous and adventurous spirit lives on in her fourteen grandchildren: Jason, James, Michael, Chris, Laura, Sarah, John, Clara, Anna, Julia, Adam, Andrew, Emily, and Elena, and seven and one half great-grandchildren: Jason Connor, Chase, Cassin, Charlotte, Ryleigh, Rowan, Alexander, and one more, whom she would have been delighted to meet in January.
Her PT coworkers; friends from choirs, ARE, and church; and vast collection of nieces, nephews, and extended family will miss her shining spirit, positive thinking, and twinkling eyes.
