Julia was a woman of deep faith. She devoted her life to being a good wife and mother. Hospitality was a big priority with Julia and many have enjoyed her home cooked meals being truly welcomed to her home and table. She loved to get together with her brothers and sisters and revealed a great sense of humour when with her family. Her church family was very important to her and she was a loving caregiver to those she fellowshipped with. Julia loved her flower garden and loved to decorate her home with her cut flowers. Julia LOVED to shop and thoroughly enjoyed enlarging her wardrobe.
Mothers teach us to love, to see beauty, to take ones place in the world………..and bloom there.
