Julia Ann Carroll, 92, was called home to be with the Lord on Friday, April 21, 2017. A funeral mass will be held at 9:30 am on April 24 at Our Lady of Peace Chapel at Bishop Drumm located at 5837 Winwood Drive, Johnston, Iowa. A burial will take place following the service at Beaver Catholic Cemetery, in rural Granger.

Julia was born on November 27, 1924 in Chicago, Illinois to Harry and Agnes Geneser. Julia married Bob Carroll on September 20, 1945 in Bremerton, Washington and they eventually made their home on a farm west of Granger, Iowa. Julie and Bob were honored to receive recognition for their Century Farm, which they farmed for many years. They raised eight wonderful children on their farm. Julia was a teller at the Iowa Des Moines National Bank and a Parker Brothers employee. She was an active member of Assumption Church in Granger. She was involved in many activities at Assumption, including the inaugural bazaar, volunteering as a pre-school aid and administering the school lunch program. She was also a charter member of the Granger Legion Ladies Auxiliary. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family and watching Hawkeye basketball and football. She had a sharp wit and keen sense of luck, which she often exhibited while winning at bingo, horse races, cards and pool.

She is survived and lovingly remembered by her eight children, Jeanne (Atis) Lubavs, Patty (Jan) Maly, Frank Carroll, Lorraine (Bill) Drews, Phil (Judy) Carroll, Paul Carroll, Mary Carroll and John Carroll; 18 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren and her sister, Margaret Hawkins. Julia was predeceased in death by her loving husband, Bob, her four brothers and two sisters.

A visitation will be held on April 23rd at Iles Funeral Home at 6337 Hickman, Des Moines, Iowa from 3 to 5 p.m. followed by a rosary service at 5 p.m. Memorials may be made to Assumption Church and Mercy Hospice in Johnston.
