Williams; the true love of her life.  For the last 12 years, Julia worked as the Assistant Activities Director for the Oakwood Manor Nursing Home.  Julia was a strong and independent woman who never let life slow her down.  When Julia had the opportunity to take time for herself, she enjoyed spending time with her daughter, Chris, keeping in touch with friends, taking care of her yard, watching the hummingbirds, and spoiling her 3 cats.  An avid reader, Julia was a kind and loving woman who went out of her way to help others.  She was a wonderful mother and friend, and was loved by everyone who knew her.
