Julie Ann Jensen, age 61 of Williamston, passed away June 28, 2019. She was born December 26, 1957 to parents Aage and Joyce Jensen.

Julie attended high school in Williamston and later worked as a seamstress. Her claim to fame was altering Magic Johnson's pants while working at a men's clothing store in Okemos. Julie always thought of others first and did anything she could to help. After many years of caring for her daughter, Sara, Julie became a medical assistant at TCI. She loved shopping at garage sales and dollar stores, where she often picked up personalized gifts for friends and family. She also enjoyed gardening, flowers, crocheting, quilting/sewing, crafting, and making jewelry. Julie loved her family especially her grandkids, and nieces and nephews. She enjoyed her time in Florida with her mother, where she made a lot of friends. Many friends looked forward to a card in the mail from Julie.

Julie is preceded in death by her father, Aage Jensen; daughter, Sara Anne Lamb; and nephew, Joseph Jake Parks.

My older sister

Well she was everybody’s older sister

Julie grew up in the 60s flower power make love not war peace groovy man

I remember watching TV together the laugh in show , the Partridge family , the monkeys , smothers brothers , Sonny & Cher

And in the 70s she realize life could giver so much more

In Julie’s style she jumped in with both feet

Julie gave her family three beautiful kids

In the 80s some real challenges came into Julie‘s life Julie learn to except it and how to deal with it even though they cost her a lot of pain and anguish

In the 90s life started turning around for her she started getting grandbabies and that was the biggest joy of her life

And the babies that got to call her aunt Julie

They new they where in for a fun time every time they got to see her

In the 2000 she never slow down even with the physical pain that she was in Julie had that warrior spirt she adapted and overcame

I’ll finish by saying this about my older sister she was Stubborn strong of heart and very giving

Thank you all for helping to say goodbye to Julie

Memories of her will always be alive in our minds and hearts

Jensen Family,
May you be comforted at your time of sorrow. Jewels was always a fun spirit at Jamar pool. Had many laughs and conversations with her. She always talked about her family. She will live forever in your hearts and family traditions. Thoughts and prayers for your family.

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Julie's passing. I was very fortunate to have been a classmate of hers in 1976. Julie had a strength, compassion, and genuine love and care for others. We will truly miss her, but know, God needed a Top Notch Angel in Heaven, and Julie certainly qualified. Rest Well Julie. Your spirit and compassion will not be forgotten.

I’m so privileged to have Julie as my sister, friend, counselor and one who gets my silly jokes. I am the “baby brother” and she helped raise me. Brandon, Amanda and Sara are extended siblings to me. Her generosity always inspires me. There is such an emptiness now but there’s also such fullness of love and a treasure of good memories.

Julie, my big sister, my only sister, my confident and my friend. I will miss you with my whole heart. We were supposed to be in the nursing home together causing trouble. Raising our grandchildren together and some day being the family matriarchs together. I will miss you by my side. I love you. Take care of our family in Heaven. Your Sis
