Joseph celebrated those traditions with his family and fellow immigrants as part of the United German Hungarians of Philadelphia and Vicinity. He became a member of this wonderful organization since shortly after his arrival in the United States. Rosemary (Rosemarein) is a big part of Donauschwaben tradition and a symbolic mark of all stages of life. As Joseph embraced those traditions may we ponder: “Rosemarein, Rosemarein, you are us with through happiness and strife. When we are laughing under the maypole and bring our festivals to life. When we get married and join in wedded bliss. When we go home to God and rest peacefully in his midst.” Relatives and friends are invited to Joseph's Life Celebration on Friday, February 16, 2024 from 10 AM to 11 AM at St. Robert Bellarmine Church in Warrington.
