Julia Eloise Varn Kessler

Julia Varn Kessler, 94, died peacefully on Thursday, October 13, 2022.

The lifelong resident of Savannah was born on October 14, 1927. Julia lived in Stillwell Towers for more than 38 years. She was an icon in the Medical Arts neighborhood and had a special relationship with the residents and businesses.  

Julia is survived by her neighbors and friends that will all miss her dearly.

Funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 20, 2022 at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel. A private burial will be held in Hillcrest Abbey Memorial Park.



The staff and residents of the Housing Authority will miss Miss Kessler. She was kind and always in good spirits. When she was able she would take a walk to Memorial Hodpitsl and visit with staff there. The pandemic affected those visits. She was small in stature with a big heart. Her signature look was the miniature American flags she wore in her hair. Rest In Peace Miss Kessler ❤️
