Julie M. Sellers, 88, of Stafford Springs, passed away on Sunday, May 19, 2013, at her home.
She was born in Staffordville, daughter of the late Joseph F. Sr. and Mary (Kafka) Simons. Julie had worked 25 years for Johnson Woolen Co. without taking a sick day, and retired from Home Pride Provisions of Stafford. She was an avid bingo player, bowler, and golfer, excelling in all those activities. Julie has taken her special meekness with her, and leaves behind an emptiness for many.

She also leaves her special friends, Andre Descheneua, Wally and Zenna Brisson, Ann Maynard, and Doris Scalia. She was predeceased by her brother, Joseph F. Simons Jr.; and sister, Mary Simons.
