    Julie was my best friend in high school and I also has 2 shih Tzu’s also and I would go to Julie’s house and we would walk our dogs together. Also, I cut her and John’s hair while I was still cutting hair. I loved her strong faith and we had numerous conversations about that. My heart is very sad.

    Julie was a true follower of Jesus and shared compassion with “the least of these.” She enjoyed her church family and consistently offered to serve, clean, teach, and do whatever was needed. Many people at River of Life Church were blessed by her selflessness. May she now enjoy all that Christ has prepared for her.

    Julie was our neighbor for many years. We always enjoyed visiting with her while she walked the dogs. Our deepest sympathies to her family and friends.

    I will miss Julie dearly who has gone to heaven much too soon for many! Julie became friends with several of us who worked at Nutrition Center at Bridgeview Plaza starting in the late 1990’s. She was such a fun customer. On occasion, my husband Gary and I would also visit her and her husband John at their home and backyard. We were always sent home with wonderful vegetables from their garden after tea and snacks, and we all enjoyed hanging out with their fun dogs, Roxie and Zoe, too. When Julie became a minister later, I knew she was sharing so many prayers and much love with people who needed her. Her friendship was a blessing to all, and I appreciated her comfort when my husband Gary passed in 2017. Our lunch outings helped, too. I was very saddened when John passed in 2021, but now they will be together again. My sincere sympathies to all of Julie’s family, former colleagues and other friends.
