Quiet & strong, kind & generous and committed to all she took on.
Julia will be greatly missed. Her Wonderful contributions to organisations like compassion house of Issaquah always left me with a warm sense of pride for her commitment to others less fortunate.
I have a fond memory of her organizational skills; Julia would rely heavily on yellow post-it notes. you would see them on the front door, through -out the house, in the mail & of course on her desk. 3M will miss you as well. May she rest in peace after a wonderful life. With great love & respect, garen
