She graduated from Saint Mary University in Leavenworth, Kansas, came East and began a 32-year career in the computer field for Cigna Corporation, retiring as a systems manager in 2002. She had great success in her employment while simultaneously being a caring wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. Julie lived in Enfield for the past 39 years, where she raised her family and became an active member of the community.

Julie was a proud member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation and celebrated her American Indian heritage. Julie's official Potawatomi name was Zaw Pneshi which translated means "Yellow Bird." When she wasn't volunteering, she spent her time caring for and enjoying her grandchildren, Mary, Joe, and Tommy, who each brightened her days tremendously. Whether she was visiting Kansas or New York, or simply heading to Springfield to a Fallon gathering, family was important to her and she made great efforts to ensure that all of her relatives and friends felt the warmth and support that makes for a loving family. Her daily life was filled with good friends who shared her passion for service and her zest for life. Julie is survived by her devoted husband, Joseph E. Fallon, of Enfield; her son, Joseph E.

Fallon; and her in-laws Edward J. and Mary J. Fallon of Springfield. Julie and her family extend their thanks to Dr. Peter K. Schauer and his staff, all of the wonderful and caring doctors, nurses and aides at Hartford Hospital, Suffield House, Hartford Hospital VNA, Comfort Keepers and all those who cared for her over these past 11 months. The family also thanks all who strengthened Julie emotionally and spiritually with their Mass cards, gifts, letters, and cards. Julie's strength of character and beautiful spirit left an indelible mark on everyone whom she met. Your love and kindness are a testament to her spirit of generosity, the tenderness of her heart, and the fierceness of her loyalty.
