My prayers are with you all for peace and comfort. Julie was a special friend that I met at Church in the Park ( New Hope Vineyard), Julie was compassionate towards people and animals alike. I will miss her kind words to me when I was feeling defeated. Rest at the feet of our Lord Jesus Christ free of your worldly pain. Until we meet again, love and miss you. Linda

So sorry to hear about Julie! I remember gatherings at Grandma Faye's with you two. I know how hard it is to lose a sister! We lost Sandy years back due to cancer. Hugs Lori!

I remember my first day working at the Haunted Hydro back in 2001. I had a love for theater and Halloween but I had no clue what I was doing. Julie took me under her wing and taught me monster makeup techniques that I still use to this day. Julie didn't know me at all but that's how she was, always wanting to help.

Julie volunteered at Sandusky County Share and Care and served a few roles there. She loved the jewelry department and working in the office. She enjoyed sitting at the front and talking with people. She was very passionate about helping others and caring for them. Julie was very special and I am very saddened to not see her sitting and chatting in our rocking chair with others. She is free of pain and the discomfort of this world now and I know she is with our Lord. She was a special soul and loved talking about her family. I look forward to seeing her kind heart in heaven. ❤️🧡💜💚💙💛

My heart aches for you Brandon, Adam and all of the family. I miss her dearly. She was an amazing friend who I will forever cherish. She truly had a knack for making beautiful things out of nothing. I know her faith was strong and she is at peace, free of pain. I know all of you meant the world to her especially her precious grandchildren. My love to all of you. Looking forward to the day I get to meet up with your mother again one day. My love, prayers and sympathy go out to all of you.
