Together they warmed her heart and made her happiness complete.

Although she was 88 years old when she passed away, she was forever young at heart. Julia’s faith in her Lord God King and Savior Jesus Christ was the true foundation of her existence. She loved to pray and the Lord answered her prayers. She loved her family and many friends and considered them the treasures of her life.

She made her home in the beautiful Jemez Mountains beneath the Guadalupe Mesa, enjoying every day from its glorious dawns to its dramatic sunsets and star studded nights, in happiness and harmony with it all.

She was beautiful, brave, and her kindness never failed. Her wisdom “the wisdom of a life well-led” she shared with one and all. She was beloved and cherished. She will be greatly missed.
