Julie is remembered as having an infectious personality and fun to be around. She had a quick wit and a tender heart. She held several jobs throughout her life and up until her time of death, she helped care for a senior. Her boys have special memories of their mother spending time with them and their friends. Simple acts of her love included funny stories and coloring together. Julie also had a remarkable talent for remembering special dates and events such as birthdays and anniversaries and would reach out to send personal greetings whether by calling or sending a card.
