Julie Goehl

On Saturday, Nov. 23, 2013, the Lord called home a terrific wife, adored mother and beloved grandmother and great-grandmother, Julie A. Goehl of Quincy.

Born Aug. 1, 1947, in Quincy, Julie was the daughter of William Franklin "Frank" and Mary Margaret Robinson McMullen. She married Lawrence "Larry" Goehl Sr. on March 17, 1962, in Quincy. He survives.

Julie enjoyed traveling, camping, crocheting and had bowled for many years in various leagues. She was an active supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness and the Cancer Center and she had a passion for communicating with the deaf, learning sign language at an early age and signing for Bible Baptist Church for many years. Julie's greatest joy was her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and she cherished the time she spent with them.
