June 14, 1938 - May 1, 2012
Jean Juliet Carter - Bradshaw, 73, of Aztec, passed away with her loving husband by her side and holding her hand, Tuesday, May 1, 2012, in Bloomfield. She was born June 14, 1938, in Alexander, La., with her beloved twin sister, June, to Hazel and Albert Melder.
Juliet is best remembered in Aztec, for when she walked around town, always wearing her straw hat and accompanied by her faithful little dog, Tiffany.
After growing-up in La., Juliet moved to the Monterey Peninsula of Calif., with her family.
In her late teens and early twenties, Juliet modeled and appeared in numerous magazines and catalogs, including Redbook and Macy's. She also modeled for Al Parker, considered one of America's greatest illustrators.
Juliet completed her education by graduating with a bachelor's degree in nursing from Calif. State University-Chico in 1966. She worked in the field of Public Health nursing. She devoted many volunteer hours as a Red Cross nurse and with the Monterey County SPCA Auxiliary.
Juliet had an infectious zest for life. She embraced all things artistic, enjoying visual art, music, and theater.
She also loved her pets.
She served as President of the Woman's Civic Club of the Monterey Peninsula and was very proud of successfully inviting guests such as Leon Panetta and Ted Turner for speaking engagements and was key to fund raising for the many nursing scholarships the club awarded to deserving students.
Juliet also served as vice-president of the Monterey Chapter of the American Association of University Women, and a member of the Monterey Kawana's Club.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Hazel and Albert Melder.
