Julia "Julie" Tutt Beecherl

December 11, 1926March 9, 2019

Julia Helen Tutt Beecherl (Julie), born December 11, 1926, passed away peacefully at home March 9, 2019, joining her Savior, Jesus Christ. She was preceded in death by Louis, her beloved husband of 61 years, her parents, Helen and Ernest Tutt, and her three sisters.

After graduating from Highland Park High School in 1944, Julie attended The University of Texas at Austin where she earned a BA in Journalism in 1948. She and her sisters were all members of ZTA sorority at UT.

Julie, the matriarch of her large and growing family, was deeply loved by all. She will be remembered for her strong faith, service to others, devotion to prayer, kindness, graciousness and quiet independence. Julie’s greatest joy was knowing she and Louis had created a place at Flat Top Ranch for their family to gather and enjoy time together in God’s creation. This was her Dream Come True. “Gommie" will be greatly missed, yet the memory of her life well lived will continue to have influence.

Julie is survived by her eight children and their spouses; Jan Davis (Alan), Mary Helen Dillard (Bill), Louis Beecherl (Cynthia), John Beecherl (Mary), Will Beecherl (Kay), Ernest Beecherl (Susan), Robert Beecherl (Medora), Kay Herring (Edward), her 35 grandchildren and 33 great-grandchildren.

A Memorial Service celebrating Julie’s life will be held at the Church of the Incarnation, 3966 McKinney Avenue, Dallas, Texas, 75204, at 11:00AM on March 25, 2019. A reception will be held at the church immediately following the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Church of the Incarnation or a charity of your choice.

Dear Beecherl Family,

I first met Louis & Julie in 1952 when Louis & I both worked for Republic Natural Gas in Corpus Christi. For more than 50 years I was privileged to know the Beecherl family and to observe the special bond Julie and Louis created with their growing family. Sue and I especially treasure being invited to The Flat Top Ranch and the opportunity to observe firsthand the strong sense of family Julie and Louis had created there. Julie was indeed the matriarch ; she will be missed. We send our condolences.

Sincerely, Barnard and Sue Dietz
