Julia Justyna Zavacka Warhola
Birth: Nov. 17, 1892, Slovakia
Death: Nov. 22, 1972
Allegheny County
Pennsylvania, USA

She was the wife of Andre (Andrew) Warhola to whom she was married in the Rusyn village of Mikova which has been part of Austria and Hungary and is now in northeastern Slovakia, where she was born. She followed her husband to the United States in 1921 and joined him in Pittsburgh. They had three sons. After her husband's death in 1942 she moved to New York City in 1951 to join her son Andy Warhol, who was at the time becoming a leader in what was to become known as pop art. She was known in her own right for her passion for decorative handwriting and her drawings of angels and cats. Andy often used her lettering to accompany his illustrations. In 1957 Andy used her lettering for "25 Cats Name Sam and One Blue Pussy" and she illustrated a small book called "Holy Cats". She won an award for her lettering for an album cover featuring the musician Moondog in 1958. In 1966 she was featured as "an aging peroxide movie star with a lot of husbands" in a 66 minute B & W film titled "Mrs. Warhol" produced by her son Andy Warhol. In 1971 she returned to Pittsburgh where she died a year later. She is buried beside her husband and near her son Andy.
