Julie Renne (Bullabough) Varnadoe

July 11, 1971December 12, 2018

Julie Renne Varnadoe, 47, of Catawba was called home by her Lord on Wednesday, December 12, 2018, her family at her side.

My mom was born on July 11, 1971 in Mecklenburg County to the late James and Alice Nadien Shradder Bullabough. She was born into a large family with 17 siblings. This may be where she learned to stand her ground and tell you like it was. My mom never was afraid to tell you “like it was” or how she seen it. We all loved these things about her. She enjoyed fishing on a quiet summer day or just watching her grandson play. My mom was the greatest “mom” and I will miss her every day.

Besides her parents, who she missed dearly, was her baby daughter, Kassie who she spoke of often. Finally, they have been reunited.

Left to cherish her memories, is a daughter, Kindra Huffman; her grandson; numerous siblings and two special friends; Tommy Huffman and Michael Wiest.

She will be laid to rest next to her daughter and my sister, Kassie at Mathis Chapel Baptist Church in Catawba on Tuesday, December 18 following the 3pm church service. The family will receive friends from 2-2:45 pm at Mathis Chapel, 1786 Mathis Church Rd, Catawba, NC 28609. Pastor Travis Triplett will lead in the celebration of her life.

Online condolences and memories may be shared at 509 First Avenue South, Conover, NC 28613, 828-464-3031.

We are sincerely grateful for Drum Funeral Homes’ kindness and tender loving care through this difficult time.
