The number one adjective that would describe Julie would be generous. She would always find the time and resources needed to help someone in need. She treated everyone with graciousness and always provided support and encouragement to them. She gave from her heart and her last moments were not concerns for herself but for her cats, her friends, her family. Julie was loved and admired by many.
