    Julie was the best mother in law I could of asked for. She welcomed me into her family with open arms and was always there for Lori and I. She will be missed.

    I have many wonderful memories of Julie and her family while I lived in Colorado. I remember her wonderful smile, laughter and her always welcoming me in her home when I was a little girl to play with her daughter Lori. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

    Julie was a kind and gentle person who loved her family very much. We enjoyed spending time with her and know how much she loved her children and grand children. We extend our sympathies to her entire family in this time of sadness.

    I’m Jon Bare’s Mom. I feel fortunate it was Julie I was able to share grandchildren with as I know she enjoyed and loved Brett and Jordan as much as I do.
    I know Brett and Jordan will always remember her. She was a wonderful Grandma to them.
    May Peace and Love always be with you Julie. I feel fortunate to have known you. Ellenlee
