Julie dedicated her life to her family and friends. She enjoyed camping in the desert and 4-wheeling.

Thanks for the laughs, the memories and for being the wonderful person you were.

A very special message from Shelby -

"There are no words to describe this feeling. She was my mother, my rock; my everything. Now, she'll be my guardian angel.

Good, bad, and everything in between, she was never disappointed and always proud of me. I couldn't ask for anyone better

to start my journey with. I can't thank her enough for everything she has done for me.

If tears could build a staircase, I'd build a ladder to heaven and bring you home again."

Memorial Services took place Saturday March 30th, officiated by the Rev. Dan Bidwell, followed by a celebration of Julie's life at the home of her parents-in-law, Jerry and Peggy Hooper.
