With loving memories, I remember my beautiful friend Julie. Particulary those unbelievable blue eyes and contagious smile. Twenty years ago, we were inseparable, taking toddler Sophia everywhere with us, as you, dear Sophia, were her entire world. Julie and I were together when I met my husband, a memory that still makes me smile. Although we hadn't seen each other for many years, we had just recently reconnected after running into each other in downtown Edmonds. My heart aches for you Sophia, Israel, Jeff and all of Julie's family and friends. We were all blessed to have had her in our life. To know Julie has left a place in my heart I will always cherish. Love and miss you dear friend,

Sophia and Israel, I just got back in town and received the news of Julies Homegoing in an email. I am so sad right now I really don't know what to say. I know that I am very sad about Julie's passing. She was an awesome woman of God. I don;t know why He chose to take her but he must have needed her to keep the streets paved and in decent order. I had the pleasure of working with Julie for over 12 years, first while she was with King County and then as her supervisor at the City of Shoreline.
Your Mom was an exceptional person and I will miss our emails and lunch meetings. I will be praing for you

I grew up around the corner from Julie and was very saddened to hear of her passing. Julie was a very sweet person with the most beautifuly blue eyes I've ever seen. Although I had not seen her in a very long time, I will remember her always.

My heart goes out to her family. May the angels walk with you today and always.

We are all better and richer for having known Julie. Whether it was decades ago in school or in more recent years. I'm glad to know she's up there watching over us...especially Shannon, Diane and Donna. You're the lucky ones for having had Julie so close for so long. Take care of each other...xoxo

I am sorry to hear about your mom. I worked with her at the Stein School about 22 years ago. She was great! You are in my thoughts and prayers. When she dropped you off for preschool she was always smiling and full of energy.

To the closest friends and family of Julie. My heart goes out to you for your loss. Although, we were once in different clicks in school, we apparently become sisters in Christ Jesus! Praise God! Thinking back over the years, especially high school, Julie had to have been the BRAVEST person I have ever met. I have always thought of her in the highest regard for some things she endured during that period. The last time I saw her was our 30 year reunion. She was just as beautiful as ever in that perfect red dress! I will never forget her out there dancing with everyone, laughing, and smiling! Julie, see you at the banquet table!

Julie was like a big sister to me. she was always sweet and kind to me and I will love her and miss her forever. Having Julie,Shannon,Diane and Donna around growing up was an adventure, whether we were hanging out at the gameroom or going to a concert at the center Julie always treated me with love and respect.

To the family and friends I send these simple words . Most Glorious god ! Author of all good , and giver of all mercy. May he poor down thy blessings upon you, and we beseech the , give us streangth in this hour of solemn engagement with ties of sincere affection , endue us with fortitude and resignation in this dark hour of sorrow. may the present instance of mortality remind us of the short tenure of our earthly existence, and draw us more closly to thee.may the enlivening prospect of thy mercy dispel the gloom of death; and , after our departure hence in peace and in Thy favor , we may be recieved into thine everlasting kingdom, to enjoy the just reward of a well-spent life .
Gods mercy and blessings be with you all , may he take our sister into the folds of his loving arms .

To the family of Julie Howell, Jeff & Sophia - Our deepest sympathy for your loss. Julie was a sweet, loving and caring person, so vibrant and full of energy. Although it's been a few years since we last spoke, she was always the beautiful soul I remembered. She filled a void in my life when I moved to Seattle with her laughter and love. Sophia became my daughter as much as my daughter's became hers. I am forever grateful she was a part of my family's lives. To my dear, sweet friend, rest in peace. I Love You, Blanche

She is my youngest daughter's namesake and even though I saw Julie little after graduating from high school, I will always feel a special connection with she and Diane for finding me so many years later at what was probably the lowest point in my life. Julie's invitation to her church helped renew my faith and for that I will forever be grateful to her. The only good thing in her passing is the comfort of knowing that she's in a better place. To Sophia, Diane, Shannon, Donna and the rest of her family, I am so sorry for your loss and so happy that she included me as a friend.

I am so glad Julie was right with God, I don't think the world is a better place without her. I am so going to miss her. We lost touch for a while and I was lucky to visit with her last year. Julie was one of those friends that never stopped being a friend because of lost time...I sure do miss her, My prayers are with you Shannon, Diane, Donna, Jeff, and especially Sophia. You don't remember me, I remember you as a sweet little baby. Love to you all,

My heart is heavy for all of us but especially for you Diane, Donna and Shannon. We all loved her but you three kept her going. My heart does lighten now that I know she is no longer in pain. Her light was strong and shined on many of us. Sophia, her spark is in you. Please shine for the rest of us.

I will remember Julie's photo in the Herald in '73 or '74 when we the students of Alderwood Jr High decided we were boycotting school due to the injustice of our state's funding system. Julie was right out front leading the way. I was fortunate to visit with Julie at our LHS reunion in '08. It was my priveledge. Rest in peace Julie.

Everyone who knew Julie liked Julie. She was smart, funny, and comfortable in her own skin...whether not being afraid to start the hula-hoop contest at our 10th high school reunion ice-breaker, or hamming it up in this photo of us, taken 9/13/08 at the 30th reunion BBQ.
What a special and unique woman she was.

Julie and I lived in the same area, from 72-74, and attended junior high and high school together. She was truly larger than life, coming up in conversation, when one of my friends or I would run into her. She had a free spirit that could not be broken, with the most beautiful eyes you've ever seen. I finally got the chance to get to know her, after meeting up at our 30th reunion in 2008. I may have been the last person to ride with her in that 57 Chevy, last summer. If so, it was an honor. I had been thinking of calling her lately. I am heartbroken for Donna, Shannon and Diane. The four of you had/have something special. She absolutely adored her grandchild, and lived for their time together. She took a genuine interest in my son, who is autistic. I'm sorry they never got the chance to meet. Bye, Julie.

Julie was one of my dearest friends. In all my times of trouble and pain, she was there for me. Her spirit and smile were unique and beautiful. We talked for over an hour a week ago and she made me laugh and cry. Her laughter will live in me forever.
Sophia: you were her world.
Diane,Shannon & Donna: you were her sisters.
I am so profoundly sad for all of you. She loved you so...

I am deeply saddened by the loss of a dear friend.
I am also comforted in the reality that she was a person of faith.
I am very confident that I will be able to visit with her again in heaven.
In the meantime, we will all miss but not forget her smile and your wit.

We were so sorry to hear of Julie's passing. We knew her when we were going to Richmond Highlands Baptist Church. She was in high school then, and we were in our 20's.
She was a very special person along with her family.
Our heart is with the family at this time of sorrow.
Blessings to you,

Diane, Donna and Shannon...You were her sisters, she was family.
Sophia, you were her angel..
Israel, her eyes just sparkled when she spoke of you...
The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow. There are so many memories, so many story's of Julie.
She held her ground at every meeting we went to! Nothing slid by her.
Gone but not forgotten. I am sure she is out of pain for the first time in many years, in the arms of the Lord that will care for her now.
Love you Julie..Forever 49!

Jeff, Sophie and the rest of the family.
I never got to know Julie very well, but what I did know, I liked a lot. I wish I could have made it to Seattle for the 'celebration of life' service, but health problems nixed that.

My Dear Grandma Julie,
Thank you for being such a special grandma! I am so thankful for my scary Halloween costume, Easter outfit with special black shoes, so many fun craft projects, playing and reading to me. I loved going with you in the big white truck to Sunday school and stopping at McDonalds for breakfast on the way. The other day I kept singing "Yes, Jesus loves me...Yes, Jesus loves me"...I must know your loving spirit is near me.
Watch over me grandma and give my great-grandma Diana a kiss from me when you find each other in heaven.
Love you "Oh" so much, Israel
