Julia Valdez Obituary
Julia Ellen Green Valdez (60) died peacefully surrounded by her family in Yuma, Arizona on June 7th. This ended her courageous 3 year battle with ovarian cancer. It conquered her body, but never her spirit which was brave, loving and always thankful.

Julia was born in Yuma, Arizona. She was a proud graduate of St. Francis School, Go Wildcats, and was paroled from Yuma High in 1975. Julia loved being a "Criminal" so much she retired from Human Resources at the Arizona Department of Corrections Yuma Prison. Julia held many jobs throughout her life and all of them helped others to reach their potential as human beings.

She loved gaudy shoes, bright colors and Disneyland; but mostly she loved being with family and friends, always thinking of ways to be together. We will miss her "joie de vivre" and beautiful smile.

Julia is survived by Fred Valdez her husband of 23 years, brother James Del (Susan) Green, sister Victoria (Francisco) Morga, nieces Melissa and Vanessa, nephews James Michael and Alex, her aunts Elaine Green and Ramona Petersen, her "palsy walsy" Rachael Nickle, and many more loving cousins.

Julia was preceded in death by her parents James (Moto) Green and Gloria Avila Green.

Her Funeral Mass is scheduled for 9:30 AM on Saturday, June 16 at St. Francis Catholic Church, preceded by recitation of the Rosary at 9. Reception to follow.
