Our beloved Julia, (Gram Gram, GG) peacefully passed Friday, April 06, 2018 at the age of 88 in the loving care and presence of her family. She was born, February 19, 1930 in Sabana Grande, Puerto Rico.

The youngest in her family, she was cherished as the cute and spunky, “Lita.” Like the island where she was born, she was warm, spirited and a natural beauty.

She was married to Daniel, the love of her life, for 65 years. She dedicated her life to instill in her only daughter, Diana, the importance of family, hard work, commitment, character, and an outrageous sense of humor. She was a "second mother" to her cherished grandchildren, Jennifer and Brandon and adoring, devoted GG to her beloved Great Grandson, Oliver.

Julia was a people person. Those who met her, immediately loved her. Her deadpan, hilarious remarks never failed to amuse and delight us. She loved her family and friends with an open heart and lived daily with a deep awareness of gratitude and grace.

Julia was multi-talented. She was a Cosmetologist and Aeronautical Parts Assembly Specialist during the Viet Nam War. Her greatest labor of love was her family. Her dedication to family knew no boundaries.

She is predeceased by her parents, Ramona and Florencio Rodriguez, devoted husband, Daniel Beiro, siblings, Rosa, Julio, Ramon, Ismael, Luis, Tony, and Ana Rodriguez.

She is survived by her loving daughter, Diana O'Malley, cherished grandchildren, Jennifer O'Malley-Yeskey, her husband, Alexis Yeskey; Brandon O'Malley and great grandson, Oliver Yeskey.

Family and Friends are cordially invited to join us on Sat. May 5th at 2:00 pm. for a Celebration of Life at Baldwin Fairchild Funeral Home, Orlando, Fl. A reception at our family home will follow the service.

Gram,

You were always there for me. Your love will always fill my heart and I will always keep your smile embedded in my thoughts. You spoiled me with the best food I have ever tasted and made sure I was always full and satisfied. "My growing boy" you would always say. I will miss you so much but I know you and grandpa will always be my guiding light forever and ever. Love you

Your Favorite Grandson,

Brandon

My sweet Gram Gram,

I am full of gratitude for everything you gave me throughout my life: the unconditional love, laughs, your gentle affection. The love for your family was the most important thing to you and I will honor that for the rest of my life. I am so grateful that Oliver got to know his GG and formed the most special bond that will stay with him forever. Just as your compassionate and sensitive spirit will live on inside my heart.

Love you mucho mucho,
Jen

My Dearest Mama,
What can I say? How can I express a love so deep and wide it diminishes words. She gave me life, she gave me opportunity, she gave me love. The memories live within all those she loved and who loved her in return. Life lived well. Rest In Peace. 🙏🏻
💞Always,
Di

Diane
So sorry to hear about your mom.
I have fond images of Julie in the kitchen working over a pot of piccadillo. . .opening 1 can of beer, drinking half of it and smiling the rest of the night. . .Danny grabbing her hand and doing a few dance moves in the living room. . .and her laugh, usually served up with a sassy wink of the eye and some hot sauce. God bless you Julie.

Diana,

My favorite memory of both your parents is of them visiting us at the lake, my father buzzing them around on the pontoon. My parents Julio and Ana often shared how kind your folks were to them, especially early in their marriage. I join you in celebrating your mother’s wonderful life. She and your dad will never be forgotten.

Love always,
Teresa Santiago Turner

Biography

Our beloved Julia A Beiro was born in Sabana Grande, Puerto Rico. She was the baby of a large family of 8. It is said that she was cute as a button with curly hair and a mischievous, energetic nature. She grew up in a rural farm environment where feeding chickens, milking cows, and shucking gandules were part of her daily chores. She didn't have much growing up, but she always reflected on her childhood as "feeling loved."

She met Daniel Beiro, the love of her life, in 1947 and married in 1948. They had a sustained loving relationship for 66 years. During those years they were partners who worked hard to better their lives and the life of their only child, Diana, born in 1950.
