She was a very enjoyable aunt. She was happily married for many years. She enjoyed gardening, crocheting, watching Sci-Fi and thriller movies.

In the early 1990s I used to love playing cards with Aunt Julie! Skip and I would bring Cody and Savannah over when they were babies put them in the living room sit at the table and start dealing the deck! Aunt Julie always had a twinkle in her eye and a smile ready to share! I'm really going to miss seeing her sitting outside on the porch drinking her iced tea! It seemed like she was always a special part of my life. Either when I was little she babysat me and when I got older and had kids she watched my kids. She was definitely a caregiver! You know she even bought my wedding dress when I married skip! She's the one who helped me get everything ready she was like a sister back then an older sister! There's just no love you can describe between a niece and her aunt it was very special and I'm going to miss her I know we all will.
