  1. Julia was a much beloved person. She was always happy and full of joy. She had a heart of gold and did many things for her family. One of her proud accomplishments was receiving her Registered Nurse license and she was in the top of her class. She loved her Dachshunds and enjoyed them very much. Her family was the biggest part of her life and she really enjoyed them. She will be truly missed but never forgotten.
