Julie will always be remembered for taking care of others, her sense of humor and fun, her artistic ability, her purposely complete inability to cook anything edible, and her eclectic sense of style and décor. We are heartbroken that she found life too difficult to continue, and hope that she is at peace now and forever.

There will be a gathering for friends and family on Friday, August 4 from 5-7 p.m. at the Prout Funeral Home, 370 Bloomfield Avenue, to celebrate Julie’s life. In lieu of flowers, the family would greatly appreciate donations to a suicide prevention group or hotline in Julie’s name.

  1. Very sad about Julie’s death. I was in Verona High with her she was an angel to all. I deal with depression so I can see what it does. I’m very sad she was a wonderful person.

  2. Julie will be missed by all. I lived with Julie after High School and she always made me laugh. I reconnected with Jules a few years ago and was shocked and saddened by her sudden death but I understand depression and what it can do to you. I believe she wanted to be with her one true love and that she will meet him in heaven. Rest in peace dear friend….

  3. Julie and I were kindred spirits in high school. I still remember her loping stride when she walked. I was over 6ft at the time and it was hard to keep up! We lost touch until we found each other on Facebook. Somehow, miraculously after all these years, she still a fantastic drawing that she did of me when I was 14 in 1967, Gratefully, she sent it to me just before she sadly passed.
