I am blessed to have had Julie in my life. She was filled with compassion for people in need, children and animals. One of her jobs after high school was working at a day care. She loved her job and being with the children every day. When she became an aunt, she transferred that love and compassion to her nieces and nephew. She loved spending time with the kids. Julie loved all animals. Over her life she had dogs, cats and even a duck. She was partial to cats and adopted many over the years. She was dedicated to taking care of her animals and each one was special to her. Another job that Julie had was working at a long-term care facility for individuals with brain injuries. Julie also sought out caretaking roles and they didn't have to be easy. She loved to help others whether that was her family, strangers or animals. Julie is missed everyday by her family and those that loved her. Kim Poe, June 18, 2022 Julie was one of my close friend growing up. She was a sweet soul, with a little mischief in her...I am sorry we lost touch over the years. I am sad she’s gone, but know she’s smiling down and not hurting. R.I.P my dear friend Sharon Deares, October 15, 2018 I remember playing transformers with Julie when we were in Lovejoy. She was such a sweet and kind person. She made you smile when she smiled. May God rest her soul and comfort her family and friends. I am glad I saved my old transformers and handed them down to my kids. Julie, I cherish our childhood memories and will miss you dearly. Big hugs in Heaven
