Julie Farnes Obituary

Julie Farnes died of injuries sustained in a March 2014 mudslide in Oso, Wash.

Julie Farnes was a mother of three. Her son Adam Farnes was also killed in the mudslide. Her husband, Gerald Farnes, was away from the house that morning.

For many years, just about every new mom in Cordova, Alaska, received a simple baby blanket woven by Julie Farnes. And if some family never got a blanket, they probably received a package, as Farnes was the UPS delivery driver in the fishing town of 2,300 people.

A couple years ago, she retired and moved south to the Stillaguamish Valley with Gerald. The couple planned to become snowbirds, spending most of the year around grandchildren in Everett, then back north to their cabin on an island in Prince William Sound, in summertime.
