To all of the family and friends,
We only met Julei on a few occasions but it was easy to tell this was a woman of graet love and patience. The lose of someone so close to you is hard to endure, and my words are fruitless to ease the pain, but know that all of you are in our hearts and prayers.
To Julie’s Beloved Family; A great loss for you all, so hard to know any words to say because there are none. I met Julie at the Alliance Church and she committed to teach God’s Word to me for two years. What a difference that time with her studying the Word of God made in my life. Her presence with Jesus now is wonderful for her but such a loss for those of us who knew and loved her. I pray for all of you that the peace of God will fill you through your days of grieving.
Jim, I am so sorry to hear about Julie. No words can ease what you and your family is going through right now. May God and time be on your side with Julie’s loss. My condolences to you and family and friends. Clyde
Jim, Mike and family, I am so sorry to hear about Julie, I didn’t know about her condition and see that she was in Hospice care. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family and no words can ease what you are going through right at this time. Julie is in a resting place where we will see her again! May God bless you and your loved ones and bring you closer to Him. My condolences to you and family and friends.
Mandy and family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Julie was such a wonderful person. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. She was always known as the cool mom. I can’t imagine what all of you are going through. God bless you and your family.
We will never have better friends than you and Julie. All our motorcycle trips over the years were the most enjoyable adventures anyone could imagine. We created so many memories over the past 16 years. Through rain, sleet, snow & hail we traveled to the next horizon. I will always remember Julie up on Pikes Peak saying, Jim we are not going back we are going to the top. All our love, thoughts and prays are with you and your family.
We love you,
Sandy & Ed
Sorry to hear about Julie passing. I met her a few times when i was at the WTJ as a fellow employee altho i work in Shelby.she will be missed by all that met her.
My heart goes out to all of you for I know how much Julie loved you all and how much you all loved her. I first met Julie when we worked together at Ben Franklin’s – she was my favorite co-worker. I remember her being pregnant with Mandy then. Little did I know that Mandy would become so much a part of my own family when she became a young woman, a young woman that I and my kids especially loved so much. We miss having Mandy in our lives and think of her so often. I did not know Julie was sick or I would have gotten in touch somehow. News of her passing was a shock and saddens me deeply. Please know you are all in our thoughts and prayers, and we send our deepest sympathy.
Love and Prayers,
Robin,Angie,and Michael Smith
and also the King Family
Jim and family,I am so sorry to hear of Julie’s passing. Now she is at peace and no more suffering. She fought a long battle. I graduated with Julie and I remember a lot of good times with slumber parties for her birthday. She was a great person and will be greatly missed.
Jim, Mandy, and Mike – I was upset to learn about Julie. When I lived in Willard she was a good friend to me and to many others. Julie was one of the nicest people I ever knew. Know that I am thinking of all of you during this difficult time.
Jim and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Julie has also been my friend since junior high. I also remember the slumber parties and remember her falling madly in love with you Jim. She will be sorely be missed by all that know and love her. Joni (Kousma) Polachek
Dear Jim and family members of Julie:
I am a RN and was Julie’s nurse in the begining of her stay at Stein. But due to some unfortunate circumstances, I was asked to leave Stein. It was the most difficult time of my life. However, I continued to visit Julie on Thursday’s. I felt “connected” to Julie and felt as though I had developed a “bond” of sorts with her. I was on my son’s 8th grade class trip to Boston when Julie left us and entered into heaven. I called into Stein on Sunday and learned that Julie had passed away the previous night. I was told that her family was her. I am very glad that her family was there. I heard that her passing was peaceful. I will miss Julie. I know that Julie was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother and friend to many. My prayers and thoughts are with Julie’s family. But I know that Julie is in heaven and pain free. Darlene
I am so sorry Julie has passed. She was a wonderful Mother, Mother-in-law, and Grandma. I remember going to Amish country with Julie and Mandy and we had a wonderful time, she was a joy to be around. Julie was loved by so many people and she touched so many hearts. She was so loving and caring about her family and would do anything for them. She has taught all of you to share her love and kindness. She is in Heaven looking down upon her family and smiling because she is so proud of all of you. Have hope in tomorrow,have faith in the everlasting,and take comfort in the love of friends and family. I love you guys and we are here for you now and always.
It’s so hard to understand why people are taken from us,but find comfort in knowing you were a special part of a well -lived life.
So sorry for your loss and my prayers are with you.
