My husband, Doug, and I met Julie when we worked at cottonwood years ago. We always enjoyed being around Julie! She was so friendly and upbeat. She always had a smile on her face and was always cracking jokes.

Our condolences to Julie’s family and friends. She will certainly be missed!

From Reece E. Wiley...

Julie was always busy–she’d rather work than sleep. She had a very unique sense of humor, often delivering a joke deadpan and then laughing at the quizzical look on the listener’s face. A fine role model for people who might complain about their problems; she had faced many trials, but met them head-on and persevered. I’ve never known anyone so strong-willed and strong-minded. Heaven welcomes a good woman. May she be at peace–no one deserves it more.

From Linda Torkelson...
