She married David Hill on February 4, 1953 in Odessa. They were married for 50 years. Julia’s favorite pastime was dancing with her husband at different events throughout the years. She loved to get dressed up, wear lots of jewelry and be out on the town. She enjoyed spending time out and about with family and friends and could always be found helping friends and neighbors in South Odessa. Gardening, decorating, keeping herself busy and raising her children and grandchildren were among her favorite things to do. Julia was an active member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church for over 50 years. She entered Sienna Nursing Home in 2011 and was an active resident. She loved her “Apartment 511” and got along with all of her caregivers.
